What are the Booking Requirements?

For all mini-portrait sessions and digital art sessions; a non-refundable paid in full is required to book and hold the date for your session and/or commence work on an art piece. This deposit also serves as a cancellation fee. The fee may be used as a credit towards a future session upon the Artists approval.

How do you handle safety?

Safety at the studio is top priority for clients, pets and Artist. Pets are to be leashed at all times. To avoid  distractions, I ask that owners do not speak or command their pets unless instructed by me.  In the studio your pet MUST see me as a leader in order to focus on my directions when behind the camera.  I will switch your pet to a thin lead to help guide them.  The lead will be edited out in post-processing of images.  


Should a Pet be determined to be too anxious or aggressive the session will be terminated


I love my images! Can I order more and others if I want to?

Yes! This mini session will include lots of play time and treats while capturing natural portraits of your pet. The Online gallery will include

additional image & products for you to choose from. If there is a special item you'd like and don't see it; ask me I can order it for you from my vendors, gladly. 

What happens if I get sick or have an emergency?

Life happens. Should a client need to change or postpone their session date due to COVID-19 kinda things, I will do my best to accommodate the change and no extra fees will be charged as long as the new date is available within 6 months of the original session date.  If I am not available for the new date, the original contract will be cancelled and may be subject to the cancellation policy.

Can I bring more that One (1) Pet?

For all mini-portrait sessions, 1 pet is included. Due to the increased time and post processing involved with additional pets, there is a $50 per pet charge for additional animals brought to the session.   

LIMIT 2 PETS at Mini Sessions

How Do I make a Payment?

All sessions and packages (plus taxes) can be paid via PayPal, credit card, cash, or check.  If a client pays by check, the check must clear. Uncleared check(s) will have an additional charge of $35 to cover bank fees. All balances must be paid before links to images will be sent.

What if the images are not what I expected?

I know you will LOVE the images of your furry companion! However, if there is an issue or you would like different edits, I am here to discuss your concerns. My goal is to have happy, satisfied clients and pet friends. You can always reach me HERE

What if YOU (the Artist) can't do the session? 

In the unlikely event that I am unable to perform due to an injury, illness, act of God, act of terrorism, or other cause beyond my control; including the COVID-19 outbreak, a new date for your session will be rescheduled at your convenience. If the situation should occur that an unsuitable date is not able to be scheduled, the session fee will be refunded.

Can I or another Human be in the Photo session.?

For all mini-portrait sessions, Pets are the focus and stars. Humans are not allowed. Due to the short time I have with your pets, I like to concentrate on them. If you would like to Commission a full Pet Photography session you may do so HERE

The Artist | Photographer, Katherine Dickson will retain the full Copyrights which means you are not permitted to alter the images, sell them, or submit them to any publications or contests without prior written approval from Katherine Dickson. 

What if my Pet is Shy or too Active?

For all mini-portrait sessions, I will spend the first 5-10 min of the session in play-mode getting to know your pet. This "decompressing" time helps to get pets acclimated to the studio, camera and me. It is a super important bonding time.


Should a Pet be determined to be too anxious or aggressive the session will be terminated


How long before I receive my images?

For all mini-portrait sessions; you will receive a link to an Online Gallery. Your Online Gallery with high resolution digital images will be available within 10 -12 business days of your session date. I do not provide USB drives.

What if I'm running late?

The Artist values the time of every client and expects the same level of respect for her time. Being more than thirty (30) minutes late without prior notice will result in forfeiture of the booking fee and cancellation of the session. In cases of unexpected events such as illness or accidents, the Artist will make reasonable allowances. * Should Artist ever happen to be tardy, I will take immediate steps to notify you, and your session will be extended accordingly to ensure that your valuable time is not compromised in any way.
