sitting fees

Choose between a location session or a studio session (or have both on the same day for $400 (or $600 if off-camera lighting is requested)).

Studio Session – $250

  • Shooting time of 45-90 mins, for up to two pets from the same household, at the Ruthless Photos studio in Alexandria.

Location Session – $250

  • Shooting time of up to two hours at one or two locations, less than ten minutes apart, for up to two pets from the same household.
  • Travel within 20km of Alexandria, NSW 2015.
  • Off-camera lighting can be added for $200 (this surcharge covers the lighting assistant’s time and travel).

Both session types include:

  • Copious amounts of healthy treats.
  • Human family in a couple of photos at no extra charge.
  • A purchasing appointment at my studio in Alexandria. This features a cinematic presentation of your images where I’ll assist you in the selection and customisation of beautiful artworks for your home or office.
  • A feature of your pet/s on my Facebook and Instagram accounts and on the Ruthless Photos blog (after your purchasing appointment).

The sitting fee does not include any images – printed or digital. These are purchased separately, at your purchasing appointment. More information about the products I offer is on this page. Studio clients commit to invest a minimum of $895 in artworks. Location clients commit to invest $1995 or more in artworks.

“The best dog portrait photography I’ve ever seen. Ruth is excellent with her subjects during the session. The photos are worth every cent!”

Tanya, Drummoyne



“What a fun experience! For dogs but also owners! Ruth photographed our gorgeous giant Frenchie Zidane and it was one of the most fun experiences we’ve had given that he loves posing for the camera. We had done professional photoshoots with him before and knew he would enjoy it, but doing it in our local area and focusing on the uniqueness of Z was much more fun. The artwork is amazing and we were over the moon when we saw Zidane’s facial expressions and cheeky personality captured in the photos! Worth every penny!”

“If you’re looking for a photographer who is gentle, patient and always able to get the cutest shots – Ruth is your gal! The final shots of our session are just beautiful and will look lovely in our modern home. I have to give a special shout out to her patience, kindness and attentiveness towards our dog while shooting. She made the whole experience a pleasure and we are beyond thrilled with the results!”

Serena, Gladesville
