If you’ve invested the time and money to have your dog(s) photographed by a professional, the quality is such that these images can be printed and displayed in your home where you get to appreciate them every day. They’re no longer a social media post or file on your computer that is forgotten in a few days, instead they last a lifetime.
Things to consider when printing
You’ll want to consider which rooms or spaces you plan to hang your wall art so that you can best match the product with your decor and space. At the end of your photoshoot I will show you samples of my products and I will also help you with any questions that you might have during your purchase appointment. You’ll want to consider where to hang your print - is it a goofy fun loving image guaranteed to make you smile - then maybe it’s best placed in the hallway so that it’s the first thing that you see when you come home after a long day at work. Maybe it’s something you might like at the cottage that speaks to laughter, relaxation and happy family times.
Perhaps you are drawn to a more sophisticated or classic pose - this might be best suited in the dining room. Maybe it’s even conversation starter for when you have guests.
Thinking of something for your bedroom, perhaps go for something that speaks pure love and adoration.
Getting the right size(s) for your space is an important consideration too - you want to make sure the images are proportionate to the area. If you would like Jack to prepare a mock up for you please send in a photo of the area that you were thinking that you would like your wall art. This is also a good idea if you are choosing a collection of images. When you take the photo, please ensure you’re not at an angle, but are directly facing the wall. Finally, if you can please provide Jack with one measurement - either the width or height of the wall so that he can calibrate it with our software and get everything to scale for you so that you can visualise exactly what it would look like.

We wanted to give you some good news, after what has been such a tough couple of years for so many. On a personal note, I don’t know how I would have got through the pandemic without the love of my life, little Jet Jackson by my side.
Let’s hope 2022 gives us the opportunity to address the inequities that the pandemic has so clearly shown us, to help the voiceless in society and to love and celebrate at every opportunity the best thing that ever existed - dogs - cheers to that!
A pandemic silver lining for me is that the lockdowns have afforded me more time to invest in both my dog photography and the Don’t You Want Me project which brings me swiftly to the very reason for this blog - DOGGYDATESTORONTOISGOINGONTOURBABY!
Thanks to the generous support of Pet Valu, I will be exhibiting the Don’t You Want Me project at their various stores across Canada, and whilst I’m in each city I’ll also going to have the opportunity to offer my dog photography.
I will be offering my outdoor doggo sunrise photo shoot sessions in the following cities:- Bradford, Ontario - 12-13th March Vancouver - 29th March - 4th April Winnipeg - 14th -19th April Halifax - 11th-16th May Calgary - 2nd - 7th June
For any of my followers across Canada, NOW is the time to book your doggo photoshoot session! I will only be in each city for a week, so spots are limited. Any session deposits made will be refunded if there are any covid related cancellations. Please note, this does not apply to non emergency related cancellations.
A big thank you to all who have supported, championed and nominated both Doggy Dates Toronto and the Don’t You Want Me Project for our work this year - I feel so lucky to be able to do work that I love. It took me over 2O years to find my passion and I’m committed to learning more and being the best I can be as both an artist and a person. Finally the biggest thank you goes out to the bravery and vulnerability of the queer and trans community and their rescue dogs who have shared their stories for the Don’t You Want Me Project that will be exhibited across Canada!
