Pet Sessions

Pets are family members, and my belief is that their lives should be documented with as much care as the rest of us. While we all take more pictures of our pets than anything else, having a professional portrait to hang on your wall is a beautiful way to honor them, and can fill you with joy each time you see it or show it off to guests. Plus it can be an elegant and personal piece of art!

If I have a specialty, dogs are it. I've probably spent more cumulative time with dogs than I have with people, and take pride in making friends with all types of temperaments.

But I love to work with other animals as well. Bring your cat, horse, bearded dragon, you name it!

Life and Times of a Dog Session

We start in-studio for a classic portrait session, focusing on good behavior, tricks and treats, using simplicity and controlled light to focus on details.
