What is pet photography?

What is pet photography?  It is like any other genre of photography, only we specialize in photographing pets - dogs, cats, horses, lizards, rodents, etc. etc.  If it has paws hooves or claws, we photograph it.  Pet photography is important as some folks consider their pets as family members just like they would a human child. 

As a life long pet owner, I am a firm believer that all members, both two and four legged family members deserve to exist in photographs.  Our pet companions share all aspects of our lives and unfortunately only share a few years of our lives but their existence leaves an indelible mark on our hearts and souls.

Similarly to a photography studio who specializes newborn photography, pet photographers work to understand safety issues of working with animals.  Additionally, we work to determine what types of locations work best for animals, and how to get pleasing images of your furry family that you will treasure for years to come.  

Often we are asked if we photograph humans. The answer is absolutely!  We even photograph just human only sessions!  While we specialize in pets, we are experienced human family photography.  We plan your session to include both humans and pets with the primary focus on the animals.  We have found that many pet parents would like a few family photos but prefer to be a secondary focus of the session.

We look forward to working with you and your pet!
