Happy Clients

Trish & Hazel

"I am thrilled with the outcome! This will get a very special place in my home."

Krista & Scarlett

"I had such a great experience with Courtney! She ensured not only that the pups were prepared but that I was also. I had a detailed checklist of what to do to prepare before the shoot. From how far in advance to get the groomed/bathed to Coloring/cutting my hair in advance (if needed), what color and texture of clothing to wear for the best results, recommended collars for the pups. I think she had everything covered. Courtney was very patient with all of us :). If you are looking for photos with your furry family, I would absolutely recommend her!"

Liz, Kaos, & Kali

"We were lucky enough to attend the Love Barks event at Pet Pleasers Bakery in Gainesville, and Courtney captured some amazing photos of my dogs. It can be challenging to get them to sit still, but Courtney is a pro! Everything was set up perfectly to maximize our time there, and she is so fast with that camera. She was even able to Photoshop my hand + the leash out of several of the photos. It was a great experience, and we look forward to doing another session with Courtney soon!"

Why do awards matter?

I have always been a passionate learner, a reader of all things, and someone driven to improve. Seeking out the critique of other professional pet photographers by entering images into professional competitions pushes me to be a more creative artist and truly master my craft. Learning more about the technical side of photography through classes and courses inspires me to create more technically sound images

What all this means for you as the pet parent, is that during your pet photography session I will be creating professional quality images – Images of your furry loved ones that you’ll be proud to hang on the wall. It means that I’ll be able to focus on you and your pet because I have already mastered my camera and settings and the rules of composition and framing.
