FAQs

Do I need a PayPal account?

No, you can pay via PayPal with your credit card.

What if my GCVS pet is no longer with us?

You may bring your current pet(s) for this project.

How should I prepare for my shoot?

Please work on SIT & STAY with your dog(s). Reward their good work with lots of treats. Don’t worry if they don’t quite get it because we are prepared for that too!

What if my pet is anxious in unfamiliar places?

If you have medications for your pet for this, please give it to them for the shoot. Pets that are reactive to storms, may react to the lights flashing during the shoot. There are also some good over-the-counter natural remedies you can discuss with your veterinarian. Our goal is to maintain a stress-free environment!

What should I wear?

We may or may not include your arms/hands/legs/feet in the photos. If we do, please be prepared for this by wearing fun shoes and pants (funky colors or prints). Stay away from white/beige/muted tones. Structured fabrics work better versus silky fabrics. Accessories like chunky jewelry, are fun for hand/arm shots.  Please visit Robyn’s Pinterest board for some wardrobe inspiration, too!

Do I need to bring accessories for my pet(s)?

If your pet is accustomed to wearing clothing or accessories (hats, goggles, bandannas, etc), then yes!  If they are not, no.  If they have a favorite toy, pillow, bed, skateboard, etc you are welcome to bring those if you would like to include them in the photos!  

Do I need to bring treats?

We will have natural treats available, but feel free to bring their favorite treats/toys if you like.

Can I bring my dog even though he has bit one or more people?

No. Sorry.

Do you have packages available if I want to purchase more photos?

Yes!

My pet isn’t a fan of other pets. Will there be any other pets there during my shoot?

No other pets will be in the studio during your session. We are also careful to be on the look out for other clients in the parking lot prior to you leaving your appointment.

I don’t have a dog. Can I bring my hamster/cat/bunny/iguana?

Yes!

If I can’t make it to my scheduled session, can I reschedule?

Yes. Please email us ahead of time if this is the case.

Does my pet need to be on a leash/in carrier before & after our appointment?

Yes!

Where can I see more of Robyn’s work?

Right here on her website. Or on Facebook.

Was Robyn voted BEST PET PHOTOGRAPHER by Houston PetTalk Magazine the last 4 years running?

Yes!

Do you have a waiting area in your studio?

No, please wait in your car or in front of the studio & we will come get you when it’s time.
