Images pictured are representative of the type of images that will be taken at the

2023 Holiday Artisan Sessions but due to weather and other conditions out of the photographer's control

the actual images of your dog will differ from the images shown on this page.


Not only will you get beautiful, dreamy holiday images of your best friend, you will also be helping local dogs in need. I will donate $50 from each session fee to local dog rescue ($25 to the Montana Pittie Project and $25 to Great Pyrenees Rescue of Montana)!


Sessions will be held on Saturday, November 11 and Sunday, November 12. 
Location: Copenhaver Plantations (2610 Jennifer Court, Missoula, MT 59804)

Session price is $295. This session is for 1-2 dogs from the same household - if you have more than 2 dogs you will need to schedule the appropriate number of sessions. Photos will be of DOGS ONLY (no people with dogs). If you are interested in being in some of the photos with your dog, you will need to upgrade your session (additional $100 for up to two people).

Deposit & Payment: Sessions will be up to 15 minutes long. Spaces are limited and full payment of $295 non-refundable session fee is due at booking to reserve your time slot. I accept Zelle, Venmo, and Apple Pay. No checks accepted (sorry!).

Once your booking form has been submitted, Shannon Edney will contact you via email within 24 hours to confirm receipt. At that time she will schedule your session and provide payment information. Due to the high demand for these sessions, payment in full must be received within 24 hours in order to secure your spot.


Day of the Session: Please plan to arrive five minutes early so we can start your session on time. Any late arrivals will have time taken away from their session, not someone else's.

Please be respectful of the property and surrounding areas while attending the session. DOGS MUST BE ON LEASH the entire time (don't worry, I will Photoshop the leash out of the photos). Plan to pick up after your dog if he should need to relieve him/herself - and absolutely no going potty on the Christmas trees. : )

Helping Dogs in Need: Not only will you get beautiful, dreamy holiday images of your best friend, you will also be helping local dogs in need. I will donate $50 from each session to dog rescue ($25 to the Montana Pittie Project and $25 to Great Pyrenees Rescue of Montana)!

Image Delivery: One to two weeks after the session we will connect via zoom for your portrait reveal. At this time you will see the edited portraits from your dog's session and select your favorite portraits. After the zoom call, you will receive an email with a link to a custom gallery for digital download of the five high resolution files included with the Holiday Artisan Session. 


During the portrait reveal session you will also have the opportunity to purchase additional digital files, prints, wall art, albums, ornaments, acrylic blocks and other amazing portrait products.

Print Release / Usage: The images that are being provided to you may be used for any personal reason. Commercial use is prohibited without the express written permission of the photographer. Shannon Edney Photography retains the copyright to all images.

I dedicate myself to creating a personal, custom experience that will surpass your portrait photography expectations. Once the images are ready, I will guide you through selection of your favorite portraits from the session and give you access to my curated collection of custom portrait products. Let's create gorgeous, premium quality custom artwork of your beloved pet that will be ooh'ed and aah'ed over for decades!

The first time I saw Shannon's photos I knew I needed to hire her to photograph my family. She was so easy to work with and answered all my questions. She planned for everything I needed in a photo shoot. The process so was fun and I really trusted her expertise. The photos were better than I could have imagined. I would absolutely hire her again and have already recommended her to other people.



Shannon is, first and foremost, an animal lover. Dogs and horses especially, but her heart has room for any animal that is special to you! Her love of animals is apparent in her ability to capture their character and beauty with her lens. Photographing animals is a challenge...add their people to it and it's even harder to capture the right look. But she is an expert, and her editing skills bring out all the best qualities, making you fall in love with your favorite pets all over again. For us at Gold Creek Ranch Border Collies, Shannon's work is crucial to our success because she portrays each of our foundation dogs in their full glory, whether still or in motion. We would not be the same without Shannon's skills and professionalism.



Such an amazing experience! I've never participated in a professional photo session before, let alone one for a pet. Shannon is absolutely incredible. Her kindness and enthusiasm made the session so inviting; and she actually took the time to get to know me and my dog. When I first saw the photographs, I cried! They are even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined; I cannot wait to see them in person! Shannon is such an amazing person and artist; I will definitely choose her for future portrait sessions!
