The Process

All pet portrait sessions at Susan M. Carter Photography are individualized to give you and your pet the best experience and ensure that you receive beautiful artwork that you will treasure.

Before the session we will discuss your ideas, locations, the process and how to prepare your pet. This can be done in person or on the phone. We’ll show you product samples either at your pre-session consult meeting or right before the session starts.

Sessions can be held at one of several locations around Warrenton, Va or in your home and they last between one and two hours depending on the type and location. We’ll even bring an assistant so that you can relax and enjoy the session or get in front of the camera with your pet.

Shortly after the session, we’ll be in touch to schedule a date for you to see your portraits and place your order. You’ll meet with Susan to discuss options and decorating ideas.

About 2-3 weeks after your ordering sessions, your portraits will be ready and we’ll deliver them personally to make sure you absolutely love them.
