TORONTO PET PHOTOGRAPHER | SPRING 2014 MINI SESSIONS

Pawsh-Studio-Spring-Mini-Sessions-2On March 9th 2014, Pawsh Studio will be hosting ‘Spring Mini Sessions’ in Toronto. These quirky yet stylish pet portraits are designed to highlight the many fresh facial expressions of your dog in a timeless, yet contemporary style.

We’ve all had a very long, chilly winter this year, so I thought this would be a fun, bright way to celebrate the upcoming change of seasons! Spring certainly cannot get here fast enough!

INCLUDES

  • one dog per session (no props)
  • 20-25 minutes of studio shoot time
  • 6 proofs | 3 final, low-res photos | $10 print credit to use towards luxury prints
  • ONLY $65! (plus HST)
  • white or spring coloured background
  • canvases & prints available a la carte

*these mini sessions may not be used for commercial purposes. Only dogs with dog manners please.

All mini sessions will be photographed in the cosy comfort of Pawsh’s own studio. This is a professional working studio space. However, no flash is used so as not to startle pets and the main concern is always the well-being of the animal. Every photo session is relaxed and designed to be comfortable for the dogs.

HOW TO BOOK A SPRING MINI SESSION
Simply email me at info@pawsh-magazine.com with “Spring Mini Session” in the subject line! Easy peasy!

This is a limited space, discounted event booked on a first come, first serve basis and spaces are already filling up, as Pawsh Newsletter Subscribers received advanced notice (Sign up for our newsletter here if you would like advanced notice about Pawsh Studio promotions!)

Let’s celebrate the wonderful upcoming season of spring, shall we? I for one cannot wait!

TORONTO PET PHOTOGRAPHY | PAWSH STUDIO | SNOWY SESSIONS

Toronto-pet-photographer-Pawsh-Studio-snowy-dogs-550As you might know, I’m offering some Outdoor Soulmate Sessions this month (until February 14th) to celebrate Valentine’s Day with our furballs in a timeless manner. I’ve had quite a few people write to me asking what these would look like, so I took Miss Rory out for a snowy romp to demonstrate.

Now, I chose to photograph Rory in a very candid manner, as the point of these sessions are to capture your furball’s natural, goofy personality in the snow! I do have a selection of lovely red collars to dress up dogs with to ensure we get that pop of cheerful colour and the final product is a collection of heart-warming images that can be cherished forever!

Dogs are always particularly goofy in the snow — and as we just had a huge helping of the white stuff today here in Toronto, the next few days will be absolutely PERFECT for snowy Soulmate Sessions.

OUTDOOR SOULMATE SESSIONS $150
(valid until February 14th, 2014 — gift certificates available for outdoor sessions)

Ideal for the dog who loves being outdoors and digging in the snow, each session includes…

  • one dog and/or one person
  •  30 min shoot time
  • 15 proofs | 8 final low-res images | one 5×7 fine art matte print
  • canvases & prints available a la carte
  • a beautiful, winter wonderland outdoor setting
  • your bond with your dog captured in an editorialized fashion

*an extra $50 per pet and an extra $25 per person is required for Outdoor Soulmate Sessions.

Who knows when we’ll have a winter as snowy or as pretty as this again. Book your Outdoor Soulmate Session today! Email info@pawsh-magazine.com to book!
