Bluegrass Pets is Tara Young Photography's boutique pet photography Studio. We are not limited to dogs and cats, but offer custom sessions for all your non-human loved ones. Each session with your animal is creatively planned. We consider their breed, their temperament and your personal taste and ideas. Quality is so important and we only offer the best of the best products. 
Our pets are our family and they deserve the very best.   

““Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”

“Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day. It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them.” — John Grogan

I want to know everything about your pet, we start with an in-person or phone call to discuss your pet in great detail.  I provide tips to help make the day go smoothly and discuss the session and location ideas.

Once you are ready to book, a signed contract and the retainer is received to secure your date.  It is important to note that although this fee is non refundable, it is transferable for portraits if weather or personal issues such as health related issues arrive.  I also have a satisfaction guaranteed policy for portrait sessions, so if your pet has a bad day and the photos do not turn out as you desire, I reshoot for free.  I want it to be as stress free as possible.

ready to book

Just as I do with portrait work, I am happy to help with outfit suggestions.  I love elevating a session and outfits are one way to do this.  Finding what colors and style work in an area or the look we are trying to achieve. 

I travel all over the world, so if you are game, I am!  I have a great list of locations locally and am always open for creative opportunities.    

prepping for your shoot

My sessions are never rushed and typically last about an hour or so, give or take. The main objection is capturing great images.  All breeds have different traits and difficulties, but that is why we plan ahead to curb those challenges. One helpful trick, get to the location early so the pet is bored by the time the light is how we want it. 

We give lots of treats, so make sure you inform us of any allergies or provide us with ones you know are special and loved.
