What they SAY...
I can not endorse Tricia enough. I am obsessed with my photos. She captured my horse in such a magnificent way. I am not comfortable in front of the camera at all and tend to HATE any pictures of myself that I didn't take, but she captured so many phenomenal photos of myself with my horse that i am proud to show them off!! She was so amazing to work with, such a calming presence for someone that is so uncomfortable in front of a camera. She was also so patient with my horse and me, as he was a little hard to work with, mainly just wanting to eat grass instead of looking at the camera even with the help of friends trying to get him to look. If you want equine photos, but are also a little self conscious like me, do it! She knows what she is doing. I will treasure these photos for the rest of time!!
PlanninG TOGETHER tO TREASUre YOUR BEST FRIEND fOR YeaRS TO cOMe
Our dogs are not just dogs, they are our family. Our horses are not just horses, they are our everything. They are both unconditionally loyal and loving. They are our best friends, our protectors. They deserve to be honored and cherished just as we would our human family. That is why I am a canine and equine photographer. I want to provide you with not only a wonderful photo of your best friend, but commemorate them in a work of art that properly represents their importance to you. When you book a session with me, I will work with you to capture your four-legged pal's unique personality into a work of art that you can proudly hang in your home.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule our session, do I lose my session fee?If you must cancel, you must notify me 3 days prior to the session date to qualify for a refund. If you must reschedule, I must be notified 3 days prior to the session date to reschedule to a new date as soon as possible. If notification is not made 3 days prior, your session retainer will not be refunded.
Where do you do business?Tricia Charles Photography is based in Grafton Massachusetts. But is willing to travel throughout the New England area. Note that mileage fees do apply for any location outside a 20 mile radius of the Grafton area.
What if the weather is bad on the day of our session?If rain or snow is in the forecast I will reach out the day before our session to reschedule for another day.
My dog isn't well trained and is really hyper, can I still schedule a session with you?Yes! Most dogs are very excited to be the center of attention and are also distracted by the new environments. There are ways to focus a dog even if its just for a moment to capture those gorgeous shots. I recommend that if you have an active, young pup your dog will likely benefit from some exercise prior to the session. Take note: don’t wear your active dog completely out! If your dog is too tired or bored, they will look tired and bored in their photos.
Can I be in the photos with my horse or dog?Yes, absolutely! I am versed in both canine, equine and human photography.
My dog can't be off leash, can I still schedule a session with you?Yes! We can hold the session the entire time with your dog on a collar and lead, if a harness is what you usually use, please also bring a collar, during the actual photo shoot, the harness will need to be removed if possible, but a lead and collar can be used in its place.
Do you have a studio?The great outdoors is my studio! Which means not only do you get more interesting photos, but I can meet you at a location that is more convenient for you.
What happens after the photo session?I will get to work creating your images. We will then meet in a 2-3 weeks at the viewing session. I will show you the images I created and you will pick your most loved favorites to apply to your order. For more details, please visit my Sessions & Product page
