Pet Photography Mini Sessions

I’m Abby, a Raleigh-based pet photographer and owner of Paws Fur Joy Photography.

Are you as excited as I am about all the beautiful blooms popping up across the Triangle?  I’m sure you consider your dog to be as pretty as a petal!

Petals and Pets Portrait Sessions

To celebrate your doggos and the beautiful blooms I’m opening up a VERY limited number of spots for my Petals and Pets mini-sessions!

Maybe you rushed out with your dog to try to take advantage of this natural photo-op!  Maybe you struggled to get your dog to sit still by flowers or  get distracted by bees? Perhaps allergies made you sneeze? If so, petals-and pets sessions are exactly what you have been looking for!

With these special sessions you don’t have to worry about any of that. Petals and pets mini sessions are a stress-free and fun way to get soulful photos of you and your dog. Without the struggle.


Spring blooms are at their fullest for a limited time. I selected these dates for when the blooms are generally at their fullest.  Limited spots available.


A petals and pets session is the perfect way to celebrate the love between dogs and their paw-rents. They are also a fun way to share your portraits just in time for mothers day or father’s day! Perhaps you know a dog mom in your life who would absolutely love to receive a petals and pets session for mother’s day!

The Petals and Pets mini-sessions are on two dates only.

Fred Fletcher Park 4/15.

This location has a variety of beautiful floral arrangements that are perfect for pet portraits!. We are able to get a large variety of photos within a short walking distance. Check out some of the beautiful results from some happy tails! The park is located at 820 Clay St, Raleigh, NC 27605. There is a large parking lot with easy access to the park.



Raleigh Little Theater Rose Garden 5/20.

While not as much of a variety in types of flowers; this rose garden contains the most varied colors of roses that I have ever seen! The patterns of flowers create a beautiful frame for you and your dog. There are also trees and greenery that make it look like there are two totally different parks. This park is located at 301 Pogue Street, Raleigh, NC 27607. The park is situated in a neighborhood with street parking only. The parking lot is limited to RLT members. There are also stairs to get down to the park or a longer walk allows you to walk down a hill. This may not be ideal if you or your dog have limited mobility. The park itself will not require much walking at all for our session!

[dt_fancy_title title=”FAQs” title_size=”h3″ title_color=”custom” custom_title_color=”#0c737a”]

My dog doesn’t know any commands and doesn’t pose. Is he qualified to have a portrait session?

During a session with me there is no sit, stay, or listen required. Truth be told, a dog that is considered to be a wild child is actually my favorite to photograph! I have a spirited senior with a big heart and a dose of bassi-tude to match. Believe me, I get it! I also require all dogs to be on a leash during the session. I have a TON of experience removing leashes from a photograph. I have you covered!

What is the difference between a mini-session and your full sessions?

During a mini session the only difference is there is a shorter amount of time. Therefore we won’t get as much variety as a full session. With the full sessions you get to choose your own date, location and time. The mini-session are limited to certain locations and dates. If you are interested in a full session option you can check the button below for full details!

Is the session refundable?

In the event of inclement weather we will be able to reschedule. I usually call the weather by noon on the day of the portrait session. If you have an illness or family emergency please let me know prior to the portrait session. In these cases if you are unable to reschedule then your fee will be refunded. However, if you do not show and have not informed me beforehand, then your fee is non-refundable.

How wll I receive my images?

This is my favorite part! We will schedule a zoom session approximately two weeks after your session. You will be able to view the images and pick your favorites as well as decide on any products. If you add on any products additional payment will be due at the time of the ordering session. You will be sent an invoice electronically for payment.

Do I have to be in the portraits?

While I won’t twist your arm, I do strongly encourage that you get in at least some of the portraits! I absolutely love photographing the interaction, joy, and love between you and your dog. If you insist that you don’t want to be in the portraits, then we can do what is called an “in but not in” the photo. This is when we take photos such as you hugging your dog without your face showing, your hand scratching your dog’s ear, etc
