Your dog is your best friend, your fur baby, a devoted and loyal ally on the journey through life. Through photography, you can honor and preserve the memories you are making together every day.

We all have hundreds of photos of our dogs on our phone. Photos of our dog sleeping, looking up at us, being silly, etc. Most of the time these photos remain on our phone, are sometimes shared on social media, but rarely do they get printed, framed, and displayed in our home. A professional portrait is carefully planned, beautifully executed, curated, and edited to be a work of artistry. Professional portraits make gorgeous additions to our home decor, giving us an everyday reminder of the love we have for our four-legged companion, and of their incredible devotion to us.

Let's capture your dog’s unique personality and spirit in images that are filled with life - images that will bring you joy every day!

Shannon is sweet, understanding, patient, and kind. Photos can be a stressful experience if you don't have a photographer who understands the person, their needs, and what it takes to get comfortable in front of the camera! Shannon is THE best! Her work speaks for itself!

Shannon has quite an eye for photography. Along with that, her love and patience was amazing to watch

when she worked with my dogs and puppies for their photoshoot.

" ...the pictures surpassed our expectations in every way!!"

I contacted Shannon a bit last minute and she was very responsive and worked hard to fit us into her crowded schedule. She was so nice and friendly that my son and I felt at ease immediately. At the end of the photo shoot we were packing up and ready to drive away and my son got a last-minute idea for a different photo, and she was SOOO accommodating..... she just unpacked her equipment and acted like it was the easiest thing to keep working.


We got our pictures back right away and they surpassed our expectations in every way. We are very happy and will contact her again when our next son graduates! 

- Sara

" ...our portraits are absolutely, amazingly wonderful! We are speechless..."

WOW! Our portraits are absolutely amazingly wonderful! Fantastic! We are speechless… We just finished looking through all of the images and think you really have a fantastic eye and touch. We just love them - could not be more pleased with the outcome!! We are super thankful to you and your talent. What a perfect family reunion this has proved to be. In awe.
