We have some great news for Maryland and Washington D.C. dog lovers! Puptrait Studio gift certificates now include FREE standard domestic shipping.
We only allow one dog in the studio at a time. It’s one of the main reasons why our studio hours are by appointment only. Why are your dog portrait sessions by appointment only? By maintaining a carefully planned schedule, we are able to ensure that every client receives at minimum of one hour padding before and after their session. Effectively minimizing the risk of distractions and surprise introductions between our furry guests. This approach to scheduling limits the number […]
We do not charge travel fees for on location pet portrait sessions or in home dog photoshoots that are captured within our standard service area (i.e. all of the counties listed in our online booking calendar). However as a general rule of thumb, pet portrait sitting fees and minimum print commitments increase the further sessions are held away from our dog friendly photo studio in Baltimore.

After your dog’s photoshoot we will take a few days to go through the hundred or so of photos from your session and handpick the absolute best of the best (typically 8 – 12 images). Once we’ve carefully curated your pet portrait collection we will then use digital editing tools to improve these dozen or so high quality images – mainly to maximize image sharpness, clarity, color, tone and contrast – and ensure that they are ready for printing.

Dog portrait session types that are forced to change or rescheduled due to inclement weather are precluded from […]
Due to health, parasite and disease transmission concerns we never reuse cloth or furry props between shoots. We strongly recommend being extremely cautious when considering working with any pet photographer who keeps a collection of reused props for clients to use. While sharing costumes might seem like a convenient cost saving measure, they should often be regarded as a red flag when evaluating dog photographers. Learn more about why and other helpful tidbits in our checklist of 30 must ask […]
