PET PORTRAITS

ABOUT MY PET PORTRAITS:

In April of 2018, I lost my beloved cat Noguchi to aggressive lymphoma. His death was so unexpected, and while my partner and I were trying to recover from the shock, our beautiful dog Isabelle succumbed to brain cancer in the same month. Unexpectedly, the same night Isabelle passed away, Noguchi's littermate brother Panton fell ill from bladder crystals and we had to rush him to the hospital. He had been seriously grieving the death of his brother, and spent a week in the hospital recovering from urinary obstruction and, because of hospital negligence, fluid in his lungs. In the craziest turn of events, in August of 2018, I found out Panton has thyroid cancer. He had the thyroid carcinoma removed and is recovering nicely. 

The debt from cancer bills, vet visits, hospitalizations and euthanasia has been astronomical, topping out at $24,000, which has been unexpected and crushing. 

I've decided to hold monthly pet portrait sessions to help chip away at my increasing debt, and give people cherished keepsakes of their best friends. I truly believe everyone should have a professional photo of their pet. I'm so excited to be a part of this process and see the love and happiness between people and their best furry friends. If you'd prefer in-home portraits, please email me! I'm happy to come to you! 

WHAT YOUR SESSION INCLUDES:

  • State of the art lighting and a gorgeous backdrop in my professional photo studio

  • We will take portraits of both you and your pet, along with solo pet photos (if your pet is into it)

  • I lightly retouch photos, color correct and send you downloadable photos within 2 weeks

  • I offer printing services, so you can also order prints to be sent directly to your home
