As the owner/photographer of Lil Monster Photography, safety is always my top priority when it comes to capturing beautiful images of your furry family member. I understand that not all dogs are comfortable being off-leash, and I want to assure you that there are plenty of options available to still create stunning images while keeping your dog safe.
With every session inquiry I always like to begin with a consult to discuss not only a dog’s personality, when and where a client would like to have a session, how a client plans to display their artwork, but also to address any client concerns if their dog can’t be off-leash.
I understand that some clients may have concerns about working with their dog on-leash during a photography session. However, I want to reassure you that I have plenty of experience working with all kinds of dogs, from the energetic and playful to the more reserved and cautious. I always take the time to get to know your furry family member and their unique personality, so I can create a customized plan that works best for you.
There’s never any pressure to take your dog off-leash and that decision is solely left up to you, as you know your dog better than anyone. I always recommend that a dog stay on leash if they don’t have a strong recall under distraction, are reactive and especially if they are aggressive.
If an outdoor session is preferred or required, I will work with you to find a location that your dog is familiar with and comfortable in. I will also discuss the best approach for working with your pup on-leash during the session, taking into account their specific temperament and behavior. In addition, we can discuss different locations that offer less distraction
In some cases, I may recommend working in-studio to provide a safe and controlled environment. This allows me to work closely with you and your dog to ensure that everyone is comfortable and at ease throughout the session. Plus, working in-studio provides the added benefit of being able to experiment with different backdrops, lighting, and props to create truly one-of-a-kind images of your furry family member.
I also want to assure you that leashes can be easily edited out of images. I work closely with owners to show them how to hold the leash in a way that will make it easy to remove in post-processing, ensuring that your dog looks their best in every portrait. I have a variety of techniques and tools that I use to make sure that the leash removal is seamless and natural-looking, so you can enjoy beautiful images of your dog without any distractions.
