Creating art for pets and their people in the greater Missoula, MT and Nampa, ID areas


Hi, I'm Shannon!


I have shared my entire life with animals. They have always been more than just a pet to me, they are as beloved a family member as any of their human counterparts. I know that your pet means as much to you as my pets mean to me - and my desire in photographing your pets is to capture its beauty and unique personality. I will capture something beautiful and memorable of your beloved friend - whether they have fur or feathers.

A pet portrait session with me is low-stress, fun for the animal, and will result in gorgeous images for you to showcase as stunning wall art in your home, an heirloom quality artisan album that will inspire ooohs and ahhhs every time you look at it, or digital files for you to share on your social media pages and/or website.

The Difference


Not all photography businesses are created equal.
Here's what you can expect from Shannon Edney Photography:




Your animals are the heart, soul, and wagging tails of my business. I know all the tricks and tips to create incredible portraits of all kinds of pets. Somehow I always seem to fall in love with the pet in front of my camera - I just can't help myself!

I create art. Digital files are also available and many clients choose to add them to their order. But at Shannon Edney Photography, my primary focus is creating tangible, beautiful artwork that will bring you joy for years to come.

Count on quality. Whether your artwork is handcrafted or framed using authentically weathered barn wood, rest assured it comes from the best artisans in the business. If you're used to photo prints from the local box store, prepare to be amazed!

STEP 3: 

I will select the most compelling images from the session and begin my custom editing process. I will edit each photo in my unique artistic style, and will remove leashes, handlers (when applicable), flies and eye boogers.


You will benefit from my many years of experience photographing animals, which includes me knowing how to work with natural light, where to find the best locations for your shoot, and how to compose a great shot.

The Artwork

Shannon Edney Photography will help you curate your images, guiding you as you select your favorite portraits to create gorgeous, quality, custom artwork that will be ooh'ed and aah'ed over for decades!

Choose from a variety of contemporary, rustic or traditional wall art options. Whether you decide on one single, breathtaking piece or a multi-image wall gallery, it's sure to make a joyful statement. So sit back, relax, and start to envision what you would love to wake up to you in your home.

Limited wall space? You can also select from an assortment of archival artisan albums that will showcase your beloved images for decades to come. Digital files are also an option, but I recommend them as a complement to tangible artwork you can enjoy every day.
