Christmas in the Country
Bark & Gold Photography has again partnered with Hello Bully for a charitable Limited Edition Session to benefit the dogs of its rescue. These are perfect for capturing holiday card photos or adding a beautiful selection of custom artwork to your home.
A limited number of Christmas in the Country Limited Edition Sessions will be offered Sept. 7* in Mingo Creek Park with a portion of each session booked donated directly to Hello Bully to continue the efforts of its volunteers.
Two session options are available:
- Traditional Limited Edition Sessions, starting at $249
- Digital-Only Limited Edition Sessions, starting at $499
Sessions are 30 minutes each and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Full payment is required to reserve your spot. Scroll to the bottom of this page to book.
*The first rain is are scheduled for Sept. 14. If weather prohibits this using this date, a second rain date of Sept. 15 will be used.
$50 from every session booked will be donated to Hello Bully.
What is the average investment on these sessions?
Limited Edition Sessions are designed to be an affordable way to get a taste of the Bark & Gold experience while helping raise money for local rescues.
The Traditional Limited Edition Sessions non-refundable retainer is $249. This reserves your time and converts entirely to a product credit that you may apply to a collection of your choice. Collections start at just $249 and include two 8x10 prints and the matching watermarked social media files on ordered images. If you wish to purchase a larger, more inclusive collection, you should expect an additional minimum investment of $250.
The average investment on the Digital-Only Limited Edition Sessions is higher, so you should expect to invest a minimum of $499.
How many dogs can I bring? Can I join in some photos too?
You are welcome to bring as many dogs as you'd like, but keep in mind these sessions are only 30 minutes long.
During your session, I absolutely encourage you to jump in at least a few shots so that we may capture the joy and love between you and your furry friend...and get some beautiful holiday family photos!
I'd love a session, but my dog...
"Crazy" dogs, shy dogs, can't-be-off-leash dogs. I have a confession to make: I love it when potential clients are on the fence about investing in professional pet photography, usually because they don’t believe their dog will ever behave well enough, long enough, at all, etc. for me to get good photos, or because they cannot go off-leash.
With the necessary experience and patience to work with a variety of behaviors and temperaments, from rambunctious to reactive, trust me when I say that there is absolutely no need for your pup to be an obedience school superstar or be leash-free to have a successful session. Nearly all dogs I photograph are leashed (not that you'd know thanks to a little post-processing magic) and resemble your everyday canine companion.
What if the weather doesn't cooperate?
While your session retainer is non-refundable, should Mother Nature throw a fit, I have two pre-selected rain dates already scheduled for Sept. 14 or Sept. 15. Please keep these dates open as backup as your non-refundable retainer will not be returned should you be unable to attend these rain dates.
When will I get to see my images?
Session images are shown at your reveal and ordering appointment held a few weeks after your session, which you will schedule upon booking your Limited Edition Session.
During your reveal and ordering appointment, you will have the opportunity to also see and touch the variety of archival-quality products I offer for each collection. Together we will narrow down the ones you love, like, and those you'll hold off on for now. We will talk about how you'd like to enjoy these images in your home and you will place your order at this time.
Online galleries are not an option for viewing or ordering your images.
