Tailored Pet Portraits Crafted Just for You!


Hi, I'm Shannon!

With a lifelong bond with dogs, I understand the deep connection they hold as family. I aim to capture your dog's beauty and personality whether they're at play, interacting with you, or showing off their quirks.


Sessions are stress-free and enjoyable, resulting in stunning images for your home. Let me tell your dog's unique story through breathtaking photography.

The Difference

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


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


I create art. Digital files are offered in my session options, 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!


From the initial consultation to the final product delivery, every step of the process is handled with meticulous care and dedication, guaranteeing an unparalleled experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

My dog will never cooperate for a session.

Most dogs featured here are everyday companions. Your dog won't need to sit or stay during sessions – my fast camera can capture even the most active ones! Behavior challenges are discussed pre-session to select a suitable location for nervous or reactive dogs. If necessary, extra time is spent with your furry friend, using positive reinforcement techniques to ensure comfort with me and my camera.

What if my dog can't be off leash?

Your dog's safety is paramount during our session, ensuring a fun experience for all, especially your furry friend! I prefer to photograph pets without a collar, and provide a thin slip leash for safety (will be edited out in final images). If needed, please bring a collar and leash for additional safety measures. While leashes may be edited out, they may be necessary for certain photos. Note that harnesses won't be edited out and may distract from your dog's beauty in photos.

Can I be in the images too?

Of course! I cherish capturing the beautiful bond between you and your dog. While traditional portraits are an option, clients often adore candid moments that reflect your connection. If you're camera-shy, I can still craft creative images narrating your relationship story. If you'd like to join your dog in photos, there's an upgrade fee of $100/person (up to two people). Families (three or more people) will be directed to family portrait session options. 

What time will our photo session be?

I schedule most sessions during the magical "golden hour," early in the morning or the last two hours of daylight for optimal lighting. We'll discuss the best location and time during the session-planning call. Sessions last about an hour, giving your dog time to acclimate to the camera and ensuring a variety of images for you to choose from. We typically start with action shots, followed by portrait and snuggly shots once initial energy is spent.

How do I choose a location?

It's a significant decision, but I'm here to assist with ample recommendations. In our session-planning call, we'll delve into the desired aesthetic and address any specific needs your dog may have, such as mobility challenges or anxiety. With these considerations in mind, we'll determine the ideal location for your personalized session. In case of unfavorable weather conditions, we will reschedule at no extra charge.

How & when do I pay for my session?

A 50% non-refundable deposit secures your date/time in my schedule, applied towards your session cost. The remaining balance is due on the day of your session. Payment plans are available upon request, with options for bi-weekly or monthly installments. Accepted payment methods include cash, Zelle, ApplePay, and Venmo.

The first time I saw Shannon's photos I knew I needed to hire her. 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.


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! Shannon is such an amazing person and artist; I will definitely choose her for future portrait sessions!


Shannon was kind, caring, and made me feel so comfortable! I was IN SHOCK with how amazing the photos looked! I could look at them all day and never get bored of seeing their beauty. I'm looking forward to having lifelong memories of my best buddy, Rico. I had such a great experience working with Shannon.
