Capturing the magic of the holidays with you and your dog

The simple (and fun!) solution for your holiday cards and gifts!

The weather may still have a touch of late summer, but guess what? Christmas is less than 100 days away, and I’ve got something special in store for you!

As the holiday season approaches, it’s time to start planning ahead (don’t worry, I’m here to help!) while enjoying this fabulous weather.

Take a moment to secure your spot on our limited photoshoot schedule, and here’s the best part – you’ll be spreading holiday cheer to the foster pups at Waggin’ Tails Dog Rescue. It’s a magical way to celebrate the wonder of the season.

Not only will your family and friends be thrilled with the results, but it’ll feel like you’ve stepped into your very own Hallmark Christmas movie!

Let’s capture the joy, warmth, and whimsy of this special time with your pup (or pups), creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Check your holiday card planning off your “to-do” list with a stress-free photoshoot with your pup.  You’ll have fun creating your new tradition and you’ll have the cutest family Christmas card.

Frequently asked questions

An Australian Shepherd poses on a vintage Victorian chair surrounded by evergreen trees.
Does my dog need to be well trained?  LOL, heck no!  It does help if they know how to sit but I’m used to working with all kinds of dogs (including my own) that are not perfectly trained.  It’s my job to make sure they look at the camera and I have lots of ways to do that.  
What if my dog needs to stay on a leash?  No worries, leashes can be erased out of most images.  Harnesses will most likely stay in the photo
Will we have enough time to get great images?  Yes! Please arrive a few minutes early and come ready to go so we can maximize every minute. You’ll be able to select from 10-20 images in your online gallery. A full Firefly session (regularly $1290) lasts anywhere from 1 to 2 hours but we are getting a much wider variety of images (a full session includes 20-50 images to choose from). And if you’re not happy with your images I offer a money back guarantee.
What if I have more than 2 dogs?  Email me ( and we’ll see if we can set up an extended tree farm session at another time.
What if I don’t need a holiday canvas because I won’t put it up all year? No problem! Some images won’t scream “holidays” but if you love the ones that do, I recommend that you add them to your rotating holiday decorations, and that you come back for a full session to capture artwork to add magic to your walls all year round! 
What if the weather doesn’t cooperate?  These are outdoor sessions so we are weather dependent.  Cloudy skies can be perfect but if it’s extremely dark/stormy I will reach out to you the day prior to reschedule to an alternate date. 
What if my dog doesn’t get along with other dogs?  We’ll have our own spot at Westman’s with plenty of distance from anyone else.
