You & your pet will be guests at my 70-acre portrait park where there are many areas set up specifically for dogs. Interested in studio sessions? That's available, too!
No worrying about other dogs, busy parks or streets...I've got you covered!
Hi! I'm Ann, your experience provider
"My dog won't look at me when I try to take pictures." "My dog just runs away whenever I get my phone out." I hear that from people so often.
Trying to get action shots with your phone? Oof.
Good news...I've been extensively trained in pet photography & I have All. The. Things. to ensure you'll get professional images.
So, if you're ready to take your pet photography game to the next level and create some seriously frame-worthy shots, then let's chat! Together, we'll create memories & artwork that you'll cherish for a lifetime.
You shouldn't have to struggle trying to take pictures of your pets.
Not at all! Some of my favorite portraits are of dogs standing up. And rest assured, I have a DEEP well of unique sounds and tasty treats to grab their attention-even if it's just for a split second while I capture each image.
Yes! Absolutely! Believe it or not, 95% of the dogs that I
photograph are on leash. Leashes not only keep your best pal safe, but they’re also important for following local laws when photographing in urban environments (but most sessions are at my outdoor studio). You'll never know the leash was there after I edit your images to perfection.
Sessions will be held at our outdoor studio-70 private acres, the Portrait Park. There are many stations set up specifically for dog photography. Your dog can be in front of a 100+ year old bridge, a barn wood wall, tin wall, by flowers, a gorgeous valley, by or in a blue ribbon trout stream (& so many more places).
The "problem" will be narrowing down the choices! But that is a good problem and I'm here to help you with that!
I completely understand; the world can be a scary place for all of us sometimes. Good news! Our 70 acre property is completely private. While I can’t control the squirrels or rabbits, I can assure you there won’t be any traffic or other dogs to cause your pet to get distracted more than normal.
My camera shutter speed goes all the way up to 1/8000 of a second—in other words, plenty fast enough to capture even the most active dog! Our sessions never require your dog to sit, stay and behave for hours (or even minutes) on end. One of the
benefits of hiring a pet-specific photographer is that I know how to work with “hyper” models and still deliver gorgeous images, jam-packed with personality.
Of course! I love documenting the wonderful connection between you and your dog. While we can certainly capture a traditional portrait of you both smiling at the camera, my clients especially love the candid images of the moments you share. If you're especially camera shy, I can still create some lovely, creative images that tell the story of your relationship. Trust me, it won't be as bad as you think! ;-)
At this time, people/pets images are only for outdoor sessions.
YES! Cats!! I love cats! Most cat sessions are in my studio. I have a wealth of cat toys, catnip spray, feathers...you name it!
The most magical light for photography happens during the “golden hour,” which is why I schedule most sessions during the last two hours of daylight. I have many different stations set up for you to choose from and they are all in the best locations with optimal light. Trust me, I spend days just walking around to look for the best dreamy light.
However, I can be a bit more flexible depending on the location and I also have lighting gear that helps give that special pop.
Studio sessions are more flexible, of course.
