Frequently Asked Questions

+ Where are you located?

I live in Houston, Texas and serve clients in Houston and the surrounding suburbs. Houston offers a wide variety of urban and rural settings, so we are sure to find the perfect spot for your on-location photo session. I'm happy to travel outside the Houston area, but additional travel fees may apply.

+ Why choose Megan Murray Photography?

It can be difficult to choose the perfect photographer for your family. I set myself apart by specializing in candid on-location pet photography and providing my clients with a personalized experience resulting in beautiful, tangible artwork.

+ My dog isn't very obedient. Will we be able to get good photos?

Don't worry! Training isn't required to achieve great images. I have worked with a variety of different dog personalities - patience, space, treats, noises, and toys go a long way towards turning your pet into a supermodel! Most of the dogs featured on my website were photographed with leashes on. If the leash distracts from the image, many times it can be removed in post-processing.

+ Do you photograph people with their dogs?

Absolutely yes! While your dog will be the star, I always encourage my clients to get in at least a few photos, as those memories of you with your best friend are priceless.

+ How can I display my images?

Great question! Most clients choose at least one portrait to hang on the wall, and then put the rest of their favorite images in an album or portfolio box. I’ll be your design consultant and help you select the sizes and finishes to complement your space. With your artwork purchase, you'll also receive the matching digital file(s), which can be used for archiving, personal printing, and sharing on social media.

+ How much is a session with Megan Murray Photography?

Your total investment depends on how many images you fall in love with and how you'd like to display them, although most people spend at least $1000 on their custom artwork. A $500 retainer reserves your session date, and 100% of the retainer can be applied as product credit towards your final purchase.

+ I only want 1 or 2 photos. Do you offer mini-sessions?

Yes, shorter sessions are held periodically. Enter your email below to be the first to know when collector's edition sessions open for booking, or get more information on studio shots.
