Skye Valley Ranch Pet Portrait Photo Sessions
All-inclusive Skye Valley Ranch Overnight Adventure // $4999
The chirping songbirds, croaking bullfrogs, cooing quail… the open fields, century-old oak trees, and dirt roads… the lakes, gentle breezes, and quiet. Oh, the quiet. Welcome to our Wild, Wild West.
Skye Valley Ranch has been in my husband’s family for four generations. The 800+ acre property is surrounded completely by national forest and offers a privacy that isn’t easily found in San Diego. The valley is filled with wildlife and is an escape from the everyday. Getting to the ranch is an adventure all on its own, too, thanks to the three-mile one-lane switchback dirt road up and over a mountainside!
It is our happy place — and we’re inviting you and your dogs on a weekend adventure to experience it!
The perfect fit for the most adventurous pet parents who love to get out in nature with their dogs and want an all-inclusive one-of-a-kind experience
A stunning, hand-crafted wooden box with a session planning booklet and two little super-secret surprises (you’re gonna love ’em!)

Your Exclusive Skye Valley Experience
We’ll start your adventure by meeting at the bottom of the private road up to the ranch. When we reach the ranch house, we’ll talk about the possible activities for the day — hiking, off-roading on our trails, or hammock-time by the lake (my personal favorite). As the sun starts to sink lower into the sky and all the colors start to turn a beautiful golden hue, we’ll set out on a two-hour photographic journey around the ranch. The landscape is always changing, so it’s always fun to find new spots and hidden gems.
When the sun sets and the mountains turn pink (they really do!), we’ll head to the ranch house for a home-cooked open-flame chuckwagon dinner. Save some room, though — after dinner it’s campfire and s’mores time (weather-permitting)!
When the darkness settles in and if it’s a clear night, we can go out and create a one-of-a-kind piece of Starry Skye artwork of your pup under the nighttime sky. You can choose from pinpoint stars or your pup’s silhouette against colorful star trails. Did you know that the stars have colors? They do!
You’re offered the opportunity to spend the night at one of our world-class camping locations and to enjoy a hearty country breakfast in the morning. Fear not! If you’re not the camping type, we’ll escort you down the dirt road that evening.
The Skye Valley Ranch Experience comes with:
- Any single product sized up to 24×36 or a 12×12 album
- One medium or five small photo prints
- All the best high resolution digital images
- Additional products for 25% off

Our photo adventure was better than I could have imagined! The Ranch was an expansive tree-filled valley with so many amazing photo locations. The experience was so much more than just the session, though. We loved exploring the beautiful property, hiking through the trees and exploring the lakes. We really enjoyed the tasty BBQ, s’mores, and bonfire in the evening. The night sky was filled with stars and Terran even set up an amazing night time photo — it’s one of my favorites! The whole experience was magical and there’s so much more that I cannot explain here — so I recommend you go and find your own magic, because you will.

We did the Skye Valley Ranch session with our two pups, Nixon and Lola, and are very glad we did! The setting is really spectacular! When we first arrived at The Ranch, Terran and her husband gave us a driving tour of the property and showed us dozens of wonderful, picturesque settings to choose from. Nixon and Lola absolutely loved it! They were running free and exploring all the interesting sights and smells. In addition to the varied natural surroundings, the ranch is complete with a great old barn, horses, vintage trucks, a chuckwagon, and more — each of which
The photo of Nixon and Lola together in the back of the truck is our absolute favorite. In fact, if that was the only shot we got out of the entire session we feel it would have been well worth every penny.
After we finished shooting on the first day, we gathered around the chuckwagon for a steak dinner, drinks, and stargazing. (The Ranch is quite remote and the dark sky will have you staring upward in amazement.) After dinner, we retired to a campsite with a large tent that Terran had all set up for us on this great outcrop overlooking the property. I’m not really the camping type at all, but I have to say that was the most relaxing night I’d spent in many years. Total silence (other than the sounds of nature) and crisp, clean air combined with exceptionally comfortable bedding to make for a very restful sleep.
When we awoke in the morning, Terran picked us up and shuttled us down to the main house for a full breakfast. After breakfast we spent some time exploring The Ranch before it was back to real life.
We really enjoyed the overall experience. When we met with Terran a couple weeks later to view the photos, we were really blown away. Terran did an excellent job laying out an Heirloom Album that now features prominently in our home. The truck shot we love so much is on the cover and it still makes us want to flip through it every time we see it! An unforgettable experience with priceless mementos. Highly recommended!
