Embrace Sessions

Buster_KnotwellThese sessions are designed for senior or terminally ill pets. These precious end-of-life sessions are the reason I started Frolic Images. After years of working in a veterinary clinic, and helping families say goodbye to their beloved pets, I realized there was a great need for something to hold on to after a pet has passed. This really hit home in the spring of 2016, when we lost our sweet girl to cancer. I know firsthand that the images from this session are a great way to remind of you of the special bond you shared, and can help you move through the grieving process.


Anyone who has ever opened their heart to a pet understands how hard saying goodbye can be. If you’re considering investing in an Embrace Session to document the love you and your pet share, let me encourage you to schedule early. I do my best to fit in these sessions wherever possible, as I understand that time is of the essence, however if you book in advance, we have a greater opportunity to get your pet on “good days” and can plan around the weather.

The Embrace Session fee reserves your portrait session with Frolic Images and covers time and talent only. Products are available for purchase separately. Your session fee of $225 includes:

  • Pre-Session Consultation: This typically takes place in person, so that we (you, your pets, & me!) can get to know each other. You will get to see and feel the products available and we will discuss how to prepare for the shoot, how the session will work and how to incorporate these images into your home.
  • On location photo shoot –  for 1 pet (If you have more pets, no problem! Let’s talk!): You will enjoy a relaxed atmosphere during your session as we create the images that will reflect your pet’s personality and capture just how much your cherished pet means to your family. Your images are crafted with flattering light, beautiful backgrounds and casual posing that encourages those coveted in-between moments where authentic emotions and personalities are revealed. Laughter and funny noises are complimentary with each session.
  • Processing & Enhancement of images: After your session, I will spend time selecting and enhancing the best images for presentation at your Reveal Session.
  • Reveal Session: This takes place in person, approximately 1 month after your session. We will view the images from your session together, and I will guide you through the process of selecting & ordering the perfect images & products to honor your pet. You will treasure the custom designed products created from the images captured during your session.
  • Donation to a local animal rescue in honor of your pet: A portion of your session fee will be donated to a local animal rescue (your choice) in honor of your pet.

Clients may purchase products by choosing a Collection or purchasing A La Carte. A minimum product investment of $300 is required. Available products include gift prints, albums, Gallery Wrapped Canvases, digital files and more!
