We don’t mind pets in our studio. We charge extra, though, because some owners let their dogs puke or piddle on our backdrops and say “Oh look. Isn’t Fluffy being cute!”. Sorry, cleaning isn’t included in our session fees.
Anyway, cats and dogs are pretty common with families and seniors. But when this senior called and asked if she could bring her snakes, Karen got a little flustered. She had visions of this 12 foot Burmese Python wandering around our studio, and refused to do it. Snakes don’t bother me at all, so I said I’d come in and shoot the last part of her session.
She showed up with a small reptile case and three small snakes. Karen ended up staying for the session (although she still refused to hold one).
The snakes were very well behaved (mostly), and I think we ended up with some images she’ll really like.
Here are a few others:
