The year end is quickly approaching and with it, our yearly holiday rush. To complicate things further, COVID-19 infection rates appear to be currently on the rise across the country. As a result our cutoff deadlines for orders are anticipated to be much earlier than in recent years.

COVID-19 Policy Updates
Baltimore City is currently under a Modified Phase 1 order. This order limits the number of individuals allowed in our studio at the same time and requires mask use inside and outside at all times — which clearly includes when entering our building and during pet portrait sessions.
As these restrictions are likely to tighten soon, we are limiting our booking calendar to dates within two weeks of booking.
Please Reschedule if Symptomatic
We please ask that any clients exhibiting symptoms (fever, chills, cough, body aches, muscle pain, shortness of breath, abdominal discomfort, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of taste and / or smell, soreness of toes and / or feet, or sore throat) please reschedule until they are no longer contagious. To help encourage this policy, we are waiving all rescheduling fees until the pandemic emergency is over.
Session Availability is Currently Limited
To help ensure that we are working within a safe and sterile environment we are currently not accepting in-home or on location shoots. And, we are allowing only 1 dog and 1 human guest per session.
And, to help ensure that we allow ample time for cleaning and sterilization, we are only booking 1 studio portrait session per day.
Thank you for your patience as we navigate these uncertain times.
