So, How Does This All Work?
I'd Love a Session, But My Dog...
"Crazy" dogs, shy dogs, can't-be-off-a-leash dogs.
Most people don’t believe their dog will ever behave well enough, long enough, or at all for me to get good photos, and even more tell me it's also because their dog cannot go off-leash. Sound familiar? The great thing is that neither is a requirement for your session!
Drawing on my experience and patience to work with a variety of behaviors and temperaments, from rambunctious to reactive, I take a no-pressure, relaxed approach to our time together, which means there is absolutely no need for your pup to be an obedience school superstar or be leash-free to have a successful session. In fact, I'd estimate that close to 80% of all dogs I photograph are leashed (not that you'd ever know thanks to a little post-processing magic).

"I had a fantastic experience working with Jessica of Bark & Gold Photography. She was so thorough and responsive throughout the entire process and was so easy to work with. I couldn't imagine how she could get photos as I wrangled an older dog and a puppy, but the results far exceeded my expectations and I couldn't be more pleased with the final results. I'll cherish that day, and the photos, for years to come!"
Riley & Teddy's mom Maureen
"We are so very happy with how well our pictures turned out! Jessica was so kind and patient with Hank who was shot out of a cannon that evening and could barely sit still! With all the crazies, she was able to capture gorgeous pictures of Hank being his goofy self. I was very grateful for the prompt and organized communication and scheduling. Her organization is quite inspiring and made me feel like I could trust her to deliver an excellent product within the schedule you defined. She did not disappoint!"
Hank's mom Melinda
"I was worried that my dogs would not sit still and that would result in not-so-great photo options. Jessica did a great job of capturing my girls in their element, running, swimming, and loving the outdoors! Jessica was very easy to work with and the dogs loved her!"
