The Breed Challenge

The Breed Challenge

At last count the American Kennel Club recognized 202 official dog breeds.  The goal of this project is to photograph at least one dog from every single breed!  With this particular project we are reducing the session fee to $100, if you have a dog that is a breed we have not photographed.  We will also include one mounted 11x14 portrait for free which you would select at the ordering appointment.  Of course you can choose to purchase more but there is no obligation to.

At the moment our dog photographer has worked with a variety of breeds, some of which are common and some of which are a bit harder to find.  Though many dogs we photograph are mixed breed.  At the bottom of the page is a list of all the dog breeds we are looking to create portraits of.  The ones that are at the very bottom have already been photographed or we are scheduled to photograph them.  

If your dog's breed is not on the list of those we have already photographed then please reach out to us and we'll let you know if we have an opening to photograph your dog.  Keep in mind our schedule is currently booked a few months out so call now and we'll set up a time to meet your dog.  Then we will likely schedule the session for approximately 3-6 months out depending on your availibility.  

Our pet photographer will be able to photograph your dogs wherever you like as long as it is within 40 miles of DC, Baltimore, or Annapolis.  That covers quite a range, so pick your favorite place and give us a call!
