Dog Portraits


THE PORTFOLIO: dogs & their people



"Amazing work, Shannon captures the true beauty of everything, her vision truly inspires me. I am blown away at the photos she has done for us over the years - just so in love with them!"

- Larissa


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!

Praise From My Clients

The first time I saw Shannon's photos I knew I needed to hire her to photograph my family. She was so easy to work with and answered all my questions. She planned for everything I needed in a photo shoot. The process so was fun and I really trusted her expertise. The photos were better than I could have imagined. I would absolutely hire her again and have already recommended her to other people.



Shannon is, first and foremost, an animal lover. Dogs and horses especially, but her heart has room for any animal that is special to you! Her love of animals is apparent in her ability to capture their character and beauty with her lens. Photographing animals is a challenge...add their people to it and it's even harder to capture the right look. But she is an expert, and her editing skills bring out all the best qualities, making you fall in love with your favorite pets all over again. For us at Gold Creek Ranch Border Collies, Shannon's work is crucial to our success because she portrays each of our foundation dogs in their full glory, whether still or in motion. We would not be the same without Shannon's skills and professionalism.



Such an amazing experience! I've never participated in a professional photo session before, let alone one for a pet. Shannon is absolutely incredible. Her kindness and enthusiasm made the session so inviting; and she actually took the time to get to know me and my dog. When I first saw the photographs, I cried! They are even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined; I cannot wait to see them in person! Shannon is such an amazing person and artist; I will definitely choose her for future portrait sessions!
