Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What does the B.S. stand for? 

A: B.S. are our photographer’s, Bryan Sirotkin, initials, and our studio was named after him as it is his craftsmanship that you’ll be experiencing. We try to keep bullshit out of the studio, and the only time we have some around the camera is when we are on the farm photographing the bulls.

Q: Where do the shoots occur?

A: We shoot in our Laurel, MD studio, in your home, or at another a pet friendly tertiary location (permit fees may apply depending on location) and will choose the location based on your needs.

Q: Why do you do in person portrait planning consultations?

A: We do in person pre-shoot consultations in order for us to meet you, your pet, and to go over your ideas and make sure that we are the right fit for your photography needs. This also allows us to get an idea of what you are looking for, and discuss props we want to use, as well as put together a shot list of the desired photos we want to get during the shoot.

Q: Do you do mini sessions?

A: No. we want to give you  more time and get a more customized session for your photoshoots  which you wouldn’t get from a mini session.

Q: Can we be in the photos with our pets?

A: YES! We love showing off that connection with you and your pets.

Q: Our pet doesn’t really sit still, how can you get good photos of them? 

A:  With over 20 years in working with pets of all shapes and sizes, our photographer, Bryan, has the experience to get your pet to stop moving just long enough to get that shot. Bryan also has enough patience to work with your pet to get those shots we need. And if all else fails, the studio is stocked with enough duct tape, superglue, velcro and clamps to make even an elephant stay still (and if you have an elephant and want to test this theory, we will gladly accept them in front of the camera).
