meet the photographer

Hi! I’m Nadia Hall, and dogs are my passion. Years ago, when I wasn’t training or competing with my dogs, I discovered that I love to photograph them. Now, I want all pet parents to have the same beautiful memories of their dog frozen in time like I do. I look forward to seeing you and your pet at an event or setting up a portrait session soon! I serve the Southeastern Wisconsin/Northern Illinois area, but I love to travel.

the experience

Step 1: Phone consultation

The fun beings! In this no-obligation phone call, we speak on the phone to discuss your vision for the art of your dog you would like to create and review the process from start to finish and pricing. 

Step 2: The session

It’s time for your dog to shine! We meet at a location of your choosing for anywhere from 45 minutes to two hours to make sure we get all of the captures you envisioned. Every session is customized to be what YOU want.

Step 3: The reveal

The wow moment! Two weeks after your session, we meet in your home, a public place like a coffee shop, or a Zoom call to reveal your images! There are oohs and ahhs (and sometimes tears!). At this point, you make your image and product selections. We work within your budget to create exactly what you want!

the artwork

I’m not in the business of pet photography, I’m in the business of artwork. My job is to make something tangible that you will love for many generations to come. If you love a single image or want to make a gallery wall from your session, show-stopping wall art starts at $600. If you can’t resist a larger collection of your images, image boxes, print packages, and albums start at $700.

All of the products are sourced through professional printing labs around the world that are not available to consumers. Each printed purchase includes the accordingly digital file sized for social media (I know you want to share them on your Instagram!), and digitals are also available to add-on to your product order.
