Dog Day Frequently Asked Questions
As expected I’ve been getting a few questions about the upcoming Dog Portrait Day on April 26, 2014.is now available on our Scheduling page.
Here are answers to some of the more popular questions:
Q1 – Do I need to register in advance?
Yes. You will have to choose your package when you do so, but you will have an opportunity to select the image(s) to be used before they are printed. There will be many other sizes and options available to purchase after the session, but there are also a couple of really great upgrade options available at special prices for advance bookings. These products will also be available afterwards, but they will cost more if you wait… I will have some samples on display at the Daycare next week if you want to see them.
Q2 – Do I get to pick the images used in my package?
Yes. You will have to choose your package when you do so, but you will have an opportunity to select the image(s) to be used before they are printed.
Q3 – I have two dogs, can I bring both of them?
You can definitely bring both dogs and we will try to get great individual shots of both of them and some of them together as well. There is always the possibility that they simply won’t cooperate in the few minutes that we have with them, so I can’t promise anything.
Q4 – I have 3/4/5 dogs, can I bring all of them?
Sure, but keep in mind that each session is only 10 minutes. The more dogs we bring together the harder it will be to get them to cooperate and to make great images of each them separately and together.
You should decide in advance whether it is more important to have individual images or a great group shot, and we will start with that. You could also consider booking 2 time slots back to back.
Q5 – I have two dogs, can they both be featured on the 3-image Wall Panel?
The wall panel has room for 3 images and you can choose any of the photos from your session to fill those spots. We will try to get great individual shots of both dogs and some of them together as well and you should have a good selection of images to choose from.
Q6 – Do we get the digital files?
Digital files are available, but they are not included in the package prices.
Q7 – Can I order other print sizes?
There will be a wide variety of additional print sizes, specialty products, and digital files available after the session. These will be at a significant discount to our normal studio rates for 2 weeks following the session, after which they will go back up to our normal prices.
Q8 – Is a tax receipt available for the Donation to the charity?
Yes! Tax receipts are available for any donation in excess of $20. Volunteers from CBCF will be onsite throughout the day to collect your donations (taking cash, cheques, or credit card) and to answer your questions about the organization.
Q9 – Can we be in the pictures with our dog(s)?
Dog Day is a special event and these sessions are for dogs only. If that really isn’t what you need at this point then we also have a variety of options available for pet photography sessions that can include your entire family. You can learn more about booking a dedicated Family Pet Portrait Session at CalgaryPetPortraits.com
