JAM Session Events

In our studio Jam sessions we spread the fun on thick! Just like dogs, no two JAM sessions are alike, so you can bring your furry friend to come jam with us every time! JAM Sessions are mini portrait session events scheduled in studio several times per year, at different local venues around the city.


JAM sessions are perfect for people looking for just a few professional photos of their pets. Many of our Sundae and Cheesecake Session clients participate in our JAM sessions regularly to update their photos and to continue the fun! If you just LOVE studio images, JAM Sessions are the only time you can get them! JAM sessions are an affordable way to attain beautiful photography and artwork of your pets without the investment of a private session.

Each session allows for a maximum of 2 dogs and 2 people. We’re sorry but due to the limited time available, JAM SESSIONS are not suitable for extremely nervous cats or dogs. Please book a private session for these critters!

For a more customized photography experience, please see our Signature Sessions.

Do You Have Any JAM Questions?

Can I book a private JAM Session?

JAM Session Events are group events that are designed in such a way that makes them more economically accessible to more people. Clients that would prefer a private session with more options are encouraged to book a Sundae or Cheesecake Session!

My dog is not good with people. Can he still come?

Due to the short time available for a JAM Session appointment, we don’t have the time or resources to allow your dog to get used to the photographer or the assistant. If your dog is merely fearful of people, we recommend you book a Sundae or Cheesecake Session. If your dog has a bite history or is aggressive, we regret that we will be unable to work with them.

Do I need to bring anything?

Nope! I will have everything we need! If your dog has allergies to EVERYTHING bring your favorite treats with you. But, be sure to bring the highest motivation treats – dogs require higher pay for modelling than other jobs.

I have a reactive dog. Can they still come?

If your dog is reactive to dogs, we are happy to see them. We set up our schedule and workflow in a manner that prevents dogs from other sessions from meeting. This keeps stress and excitement levels down for ALL dogs.

Is my session refundable?

We have only a few available JAM Sessions, and therefor we can not refund your session fee. You are most welcome to transfer your session to a friend or family member.

Can I be in the photos?

YES! We can accommodate two dogs and two people from the same household in one JAM Session. If your household has more pets or people, please purchase two JAM Sessions back to back.

How long before I get to see my photos?

I do my very best to have your galleries posted within the week. Sometimes, it may be longer during really busy times of the year. We will take Holiday deadlines into account with our planning as well! If time permits, we will often show you your photos immediately following your session.

We only did the Jam session but Holly was so fun! I’m glad she had props because our pup wasn’t keeping his hat on!

Holly and her crew are the best. Had a lot of fun and definitely will be back in the future.

Definitely a five-star experience, for my two Aussies, and for myself. Holly has a wonderful touch with dogs and digital technology. A big Bow-Wow to her talents
