  • How much does the Wags Studios Signature Session cost?

    • The Wags Studios Signature Session is $149. Please note that digital files, prints, albums are priced separately and not included in the session fee.
      Since we do not have a minimum order amount, you are welcome to spend as much or as little as you wish. Most clients budget an additional $400 to $1500 to spend on custom artwork for their homes.
  • What types of payments are accepted?

    • We accept cash, check, and credit cards. Interest-free payment plans are available as well.
  • How should I prepare for the photoshoot?

    • Prior to the photoshoot, it’s a good idea to take your pet to the groomer or give them a bath and get them cleaned up.  In addition, make sure there are no clumps of fur covering your pet’s eyes.
  • What types of pets do you photograph?

    • Wags Studios is pleased to photograph all types of pets. Whether you have a dog, cat, hamster, parrot, or any other kind of pet, you can count on us to capture their unique personality.
  • Where are photoshoots held?

    • Most of our photoshoots are held in local parks, beaches, trails, or fields that are within 30 miles of Portland. If there is a location that is meaningful to you and your pet, we’d be happy to go there for your photoshoot. Please note that there is a travel fee for locations that are outside of the 30 mile radius.
  • My pet never stay still. Will you be able to take good photographs?

  • How many pets can I bring to the photoshoot?

    • Unlike most pet photographers who charge per pet, we encourage you to bring as many pets as you’d like from your family at no additional cost.
  • Can I be in the pictures?

    • Absolutely! We love including you in a handful of photos with your dog, to show the incredible bond you share with them. However, please be aware that the session is about your dog, with the majority of the shots focusing on them.
  • What can I expect after the photoshoot?

    • Following the photoshoot, we’ll polish up your photos and present them to you in a private viewing. We’ll help you choose the right wall art for your home. You can expect all prints to be printed onto high quality materials that will last for generations to come.
