"What if my dog is crazy? I don’t think they will sit still for photos!"


Not a problem - 99% of the dogs we work with have a lot of energy and are not exactly obedience champions haha! One of the best things you can do BEFORE the session is take them out for a long walk or playtime in your yard. This will help get some of that excess energy out! Also we work very fast and always choose locations with limited distractions.

"Should I bring treats to our session?"


YES! Due to some pups having allergies to food we are unable to bring treats for your fur-baby, but you know what they love best anyway - so bring the highest value bribery possible!

"Does my dog have to wear a leash during photos?"


Yes. However, you'll see in all of our photos we Photoshop them out :) We are all about pup safety and respecting leash laws no matter how well trained they are.

"Is a retractable leash or a traditional leash best?"


We recommend traditional leashes in a neutral color. They are the easiest to edit out of images, and in walking photos of you with your dog they will look the best (the only images we keep leashes in). Also some dogs get spooked if the retractable leash handle hits the ground - we want to keep them stress free!

"Do you have a studio for indoor pet portraits?"


We do not - and that decision is intentional. Our photography style favors real moments and vibrant colors so we find those elements are best captured out exploring the world with your pup(s)! However, we do offer IN-HOME sessions as an alternative (especially with how often it gets cold here in Minnesota). These are super laid back and snuggly and are a great option for anxious pups who are easily overwhelmed.

"My dog has some hot spots / eye stains / etc... Can you edit those out?"


Yes! We are no stranger to requests like these, just please be up front about any cosmetic changes you'd like made in advance. We would love to hear about them during the initial email consultation process or even during the session itself in person. We do not automatically change the appearance of your pup without your permission.

"What should I wear while being photographed with my dog(s)?"


Wear something that you can move around comfortably in! Remember you will be with your dog(s), so you’ll want to be able to sit, kneel, crouch, stand and walk/run comfortably. If you need wardrobe inspiration I’m happy to provide some!

"Do you offer products such as keepsake albums or canvases?"


Yes we do! We offer prints, canvases, metal + wood prints, albums and other unique items. Upon delivery of your online download gallery we provide a full list of printing options. While we do happily provide a print release so you can print wherever you'd like on your own - we also take a lot of pride in our professional grade products we sell as well. A lot of love went into our printing vendor selection and it shows!

"I literally cannot say enough good things about Studio Twelve:52. Kasey is fast, efficient, and puts such thought and care into each and every photo. After working with her, I've seen that she often defies the odds of what seems possible. She has such a can-do attitude. She wants every photo to be 100% "you". I could go on forever, but all I can say is book now!"

"Studio Twelve:52 is amazing! When it came time for me to pop the question they didn't hesitate to help! They flew out to Las Vegas, and played secret paparazzi, capturing the whole moment, both in photos and video for us! They really do go above and beyond the call of duty for anyone they work with. They are amazing people, an amazing team, and extremely talented!"
