Thank you for subscribing!




As a pet owner, I get it. It feels like there's always a reason to put off the hassle of getting photos taken of or with your family pets. However, before you know it your time with them is limited and you simply want to remember them forever. 

•Are you worried that your pets won't sit still?
•Concerned your dog has to stay on-leash?
•Not sure what artwork will work best in your home?

Never enough time



My biggest fear was that our St. Bernard, Bo, wouldn't cooperate. Ann was so patient and prepared for everything. It went better than I could have ever imagined.

To be honest, we thought it might be weird to have a large portrait of our dog in our living room and an image box full of pictures of her. Guess what? It's not. We see them every day and it brings us joy. Lots of joy!


Our family almost didn’t have the session with Ann. We are so glad we did. We lost our 13 year old lab Sam 4 weeks after our session and we would have missed out on the keepsakes we will cherish forever.

Most of the dogs that I photograph are actually on-leash. You'll never know the leash was there after I edit your images to perfection.

My dog doesn't know how to sit or stay, is that a problem?

My dog doesn't know how to sit or stay, is that a problem?

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. 

My dog can't be off leash. Can I still do a session?

My dog can't be off leash. Can I still do a session?

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.

Where are sessions held? Will you do a session at my home?

Where are sessions held?

Sessions will be held at our outdoor studio-70 private acres. There are many stations set up specifically for dog photography. Your dog can be in front of a 100+ year old bridge. More: Barn wood. Tin wall. Rainbow doors. Benches. Flowers. Rocks. Wood pile. Pond. A mile of the blue ribbon Trout Run creek.

The "problem" will be narrowing down the choices! But that is a good problem and I'm here to help you with that!

 Limited Edition sessions (for members only) may be held at a pre-determined location.

At this time, sessions will take place on my property. Come to me for a phenomenal experience!

My dog is super reactive to other dogs/people/bicycles. How can we do a session?

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.

Can I be in the images too?

Can I be in the images too?

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. 

Do you photograph pets other than dogs?

Do you photograph pets other than dogs?

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!

What days are the sessions usually held? Do you do weekend sessions?

Most sessions are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Weekend sessions are very limited & held only for club members.

What time will our photo session be?

What time will our photo session be?

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.

Do you offer mini sessions?

Do you offer mini sessions?

Yes! These are exclusively held for club members. They've included holiday sessions, location sessions/etc. Memberships open twice a year. More info coming.
