FAQ

  • Do you photograph animals other than cats and dogs?

    Yes! From guinea pigs to birds, I love to document all critters.

  • What if I have more than one pet?

    You can add a critter to your package for an additional $50/animal. You'll receive 5 extra images from your session.

  • Can I be in some of the photos?

    Sometimes animals are more comfortable in your arms, so please do be prepared to be in a couple shots in case they are nervous. Please keep in mind that the portrait package is specifically to document your animal companion(s).

  • What if I really, really want humans included in the session?

    Please add information about the number of humans you'd like included in your pet portrait package in your message. I sometimes am able to create a custom package for 1-2 adults. For whole family photography including children, please reach out to me at my family portrait website: Sommessa Photography

  • How do I prepare my critter for their session?

    After your session has been booked I'll send you a prep guide via email!

  • What if my critter has to be on leash?

    If your critter needs to be on a leash when outdoors I definitely recommend a studio session! The studio space is secure for your little one to roam.

  • Do you travel outside of Portland or out of state?

    Yes! I offer custom travel sessions. Please let me know where you're located in your contact form.
