Do you supply props or costumes for pet portraits?

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 […]

Should I have received a confirmation email?

You should receive an email confirmation within minutes of scheduling a dog portrait session online at Puptrait.com.

Do you guarantee or warranty the quality of your work?

Puptrait Studio pet photo prints are guaranteed to be 100% free of printing and manufacturing errors, such as streaks and tears. Please note that while we take great lengths to ensure consistency throughout the proofing process, we can not guarantee variations in tone, luminosity or saturation for the simple fact that we have zero control over how your computer’s monitor is calibrated. How do I return a damaged order? If you do receive flawed prints, return the item in its […]

What if I’m a commercial pet photography client that doesn’t need prints?

Like most commercial photographers, we bill commercial pet photography and product photography clients a la carte – meaning we bill photography and editing requests on an hourly and per diem basis. To learn more about our rates for editing, set and prop design, and canine casting calls please view our fee list. To discuss a commercial project, travel assignment, resale pricing, or extended commercial licensing please email studio directly or call us at 1(443)604-0711.

Do you work with untrained or poorly trained dogs?

We have worked with dogs of literally every training level, including free roaming strays in South America and recently rescued street dogs here in Baltimore, all with great results. That said, even a good dog can be triggered. Please let us know prior to your shoot if your dog has any aggressive tendencies or known triggers. There’s no need to be embarrassed if this is the case, we work regularly with rescue animals and we completely understand. But we want to […]

Can I bring multiple dogs to my studio session?

We strongly encourage pet portrait clients with multiple dogs to book a separate studio session for each of their dogs. We have found that even bonded dogs from the same household tend to distract each other and needlessly complicate shoots. That’s not to say that we aren’t happy to accommodate owners who bring multiple dogs to their session, especially those traveling to the studio from further away. But even with that said, the vast majority of our clients from Washington […]

Do you accept guest posts?

For guest contributor consideration, please email submissions […]

Will you donate to our nonprofit dog rescue or advocacy?

Maybe. We actively support a number of local dog related nonprofits, including Bella’s Bully Buddies, the Baltimore Bully Crew and BARCS. We regularly donate free appointment slots to help adoptable and foster dogs find forever homes. Being a local and independent pet photography studio, there is of course a limit to how much we can give – even in how much of our time we can donate. But as a general rule of thumb, we usually try to help where […]

Is K9RT.com affiliated with the Puptrait Studio?

K9rt.com is web store and online gallery owned by the Puptrait Studio. The website currently sells Puptrait Studio gift cards. However, we have plans to soon expand the website’s offerings to include other items, specifically fine art prints. Puptrait.com will remain where we host our studio’s dog photo portfolio and continue to book photographic pet portrait commissions. We will also be maintaining our existing print on demand line of licensed merch on RedBubble, as this shop takes us zero effort to maintain […]
