Private Photo Shoots

With Photographer

Deborah Downes


Take to Heart Images

Session Fee: $350.00 


The session fee includes the following:


Getting to know you and your pet questionnaire.


A pre-session consultation at your home. Yes, things like location, time, and clothing for the shoot can be discussed via phone or email, but nothing beats personal one on one time for building a rapport that potentially means the difference between a good session and a truly memorable one resulting in treasured keepsake images.

Pre-session location shoot. After you decide on the areas in your home for the photo session, Deb will photograph them, checking for lighting and additional backdrops.

Photo session at your home.  We view this time together as a play-date, where we get the privilege of observing and photographing a family interacting with each other and their beloved pet(s).

Post processing of the best images from your session.

Your images will be done within two weeks of your session. Deb will contact you and send you the link to your gallery.  Afterwards, you can choose either a free digital copy of your choice or a free printed 8x10. Package deals for digital copies available.


$45 Artistic Fee Waived by Hot Digital Dawg.

Kristen is a digital artist and can turn any of the photos that Deb captures from your shoot into a custom digital painting. She will download your painted portrait to Redbubble's on-line print shop where you can purchase it as a canvas, print, pillow, tote bag, coffee mug, etc.  Feel free to visit her website at
