Sessions & Fees

So, you say your dog is not an obedience champion and how will he ever sit still for a portrait session? Or that he is afraid of the camera? Not to worry. We can almost guarantee that we have worked with pets more naughty or shy than yours. In fact, some of the pets on this website were not on their best behavior. No matter what type of personality your pet has, we keep everything relaxed and fun for you and your pet to get the best results. At Susan M. Carter Photography, pets, horses and their people are all we do so we know what it takes to produce the best portrait of your beloved four legged companion.
