From therapy pets to couch potatoes – dogs provide comfort, companionship, security and fun. Capture your unique bond to cherish for a lifetime.


Choose the session type that best fits you. Happy Tails is a special session that focuses on the relationship with your pet. Playdate is fun hour spent capturing your dog being themselves. Booth tails are limited sessions in our East Bay studio, quick and easy. Of course, you are always welcome in the photos with your furry best friend.


Locations for your session can range form your home to the beach or a hike in the woods. Some of my favorites are Baker Beach, Chrissy Field, Jack London Square, Lake Merrit, Albany Beach, Tilden Park, Point Pinole, or Treasure Island.

Why Chickpea?

We provide only carefully curated archival quality prints and products so your memories will last a lifetime. We also offer digital images, if that is your preference. We take the time to learn what is special about your relationship with your dog. And we make sure you are thrilled with the results of your session with our industry leading 110% money-back guarantee.


Relax and enjoy your session. I will provide you with tips on how to make it successful, but in general you relax and watch and let me work with your dog. I’ll have treats and toys and spend time getting to know your pooch so they feel comfortable with me and the camera.
