At Blue Merle Photography, I create beautiful one-of-a-kind photographs that capture your pet's unique personality and your relationship with them. My goal is to create timeless images of your pet's playful frolicking, their quiet restful moments, or their looking into your eyes with their white muzzled face and soulful eyes. Photographing each pet's personality and spirit in the comfort of their own home, a favorite park or yard ensures that your pet is comfortable and happy so that natural and genuine expression showing off the essence of their personality comes through in each photograph. I hand select the best images from your session to include in your gallery and album design that uniquely represent your pet’s personality and your relationship with them.
These are “lifestyle” photography sessions capturing interaction and connection with your pets and you and your family, not perfect poses. No poses or arrangements are guaranteed.
On Location or at Home:
All outdoor sessions are scheduled two hours before sunset and may take up to one to two hours on location (park, scenic, urban, outdoors) depending on your pet’s energy level, age and health. At home and backyard sessions are typically scheduled between Noon and 2:00 PM or two hours before sunset and may also take up to one to two hours.
For your pet’s safety, we will keep them on leash and edit the leash out in the editing digital enhancement process.
Outdoor photography sessions are contingent on weather and will be rescheduled at the next soonest available date if the weather prevents an outdoor session.
The season in Florida for outdoor photography sessions is from October 1st through May 31st. For yours and your pets’ safety, outdoor photography sessions will only be scheduled when it is cool enough to safely be outside for an extended period of time. Indoor sessions can be scheduled year-round.
New England, Washington state and California clients:
Photo sessions are scheduled with the same safety guidelines in mind as for Florida. If it’s too hot or too cold or too rainy, we will do the session indoors or reschedule. If you do not have an indoor location like your home where you want to have the session, we’ll figure something out. Give me a head’s up so we can plan for a fun and beautiful experience.
