Viewing & Purchasing Your Pet’s Portrait

Maddy : Dog Portrait

Viewing your pet's portraits for the first time is an exciting and emotional experience as you see them projected on the big screen in Mark's Fairhaven studio. You'll want to honor your pet by purchasing a wall portrait or coffee-table book to remember him long after he passes to pet heaven.

A single projection preview session will be scheduled about a week after your pet’s portrait session so you can view your selections. Your purchasing decision will be made at that appointment, so be sure to bring everyone who will be involved in the decision. That usually means both partners in a relationship sharing the love of your pet.

The preview session will be in the Turner Photographics Fairhaven studio, where your pet is always welcome.

Mark will guide you to appropriate sizing and framing for your art piece. Fees will be assessed for additional preview sessions and orders placed after the initial preview session. Prices are subject to change at any time.


Your location pet portrait session is $200, which includes the photographer’s time, talent, travel within Whatcom County, and materials. Studio sessions are $150. You can invest as much or as little as you would like in prints, from large wall portraits down to desktop-size prints. Wall portraits are a lifetime investment in remembering your pet, an important focal point in your home. Most families end up investing about $1500 in their pet portraits.


Our pet portraits include basic retouching, particularly to enhance eyes and minimize any background distractions that snuck in during an active portrait session. If there is something in particular you’d like retouched, please tell us when you select your poses during your viewing and purchasing session. Black and white or sepia conversions are available.
