Chose from a natural background, a black background set up, or a combination of both!

04. frequently asked questions: 

All sessions offered by Giana Terranova Photography are laid back, worry-free experiences. The amount of preparation is completely up to you, although I suggest the dog be somewhat groomed and clean for their photoshoot!
We can discuss some good locations for dog portraits in your area when it comes to natural backdrops. The black background sessions are done in an area of even light, such as a barn aisle, garage opening, or entranceway. Depending on where you're located or what options we have I can discuss what would work best before hand!
I would advise bringing along a leash depending on the rules of the location, which can be edited out in post.  An assistant is extremely helpful if available as well. Most definitely bring along their favorite toy, frisbee, and/or ball that they can interact with, as well as some treats of choice!
I encourage you share images with your friends! Credit is preferred but not required. If you'd like to credit, tag Giana Terranova Photography on Facebook or @gianaterranova_photography on instagram.
There are several options to choose from. Payment by check or credit card is preferred and payment is required immediately following the end of the session. I use square for credit card payments, which is a safe and secured payment company with receipts. 
A lot of work goes into these portraits to make them look absolutely perfect, and that includes touch-ups. Don't be worried about scratches, scars, fungus or other blemishes, and if you are feel free to ask and I will remove them free of charge. 
However, this will not completely clean a dirty dog, and the cleanest as possible the better! Keeping in mind, as well, that the more editing the longer it will take to receive the images, but I want you to be absolutely happy with every image you receive!
Every session will have a set number of poses for each dog, but if you have something specific in mind that you'd really like  please let me know! If you have more than one dog, I will also edit them together for a few shots as well. Despite contrary belief the multiple images are taken separately and edited together, so don't worry. I do my best to create believable compositions afterwards!
Digitals are included in every session package. They are considered proofs and will be sent with my logo on  them for social media use only.  You will receive your images, usually through email, with a link to a personalized online gallery from which you can download the files straight to your computer. Completion of images depends on the type of session, but feel free to inquire. 
Of course! I work in tangent with several printing companies to offer you physical prints in multiple sizes with various types. Purchases can be made directly in your Pixieset gallery you will receive with your images, where the entire store of all the products are available to browse. There are plenty of options and prices available, so inquire for your exact options.
