that will one day become a sentimental reminder for dog moms when they need reminding the most.

When it comes to photographing the furry love of your life – you should hire a dog photographer. 

 

If you love the way his forehead wrinkles when he’s being serious, or the gleeful way he retrieves the ball, or maybe it’s just the way he looks adoringly at you while you’re holding his favorite treat, those are the moments we’ll use to create personal art for your home.

With more than 10 years working with pets & their people, I create a luxury dog photography experience for dog moms and deliver heirloom quality art, albums, and wall portraits.

Imagine finally having gorgeous photographs of your dog delivered in an experience that’s tailored to you.

You’d be able to wake up to for favorite furry face on the wall because you finally made the time to have portraits of the WHOLE family.

“Very thrilled with the photos and the artwork of my precious doggie and me. These are our family photos! Courtney is professional, patient and knows how to get the great photos. She was even very cognizant of my dog’s reactive tendencies to other dogs in the photo setting. I highly recommend CM Bryson Photography. She has the “Dozer” stamp of approval!”

HOW IT WORKS

STEP 1 - THE PLAN

I’ll ask you do a little homework by completing a session planning questionnaire that helps me get to know the star of the show and help you explore how you might want to enjoy the images we’ll create.

I’ll take it from there – creating inspiration boards & shot lists to make sure I deliver the best dog photos you’ve ever dreamed of having. 

STEP 2 - THE SESSION

This will be your dog’s favorite part: treats, toys, funny noises, and mom’s full attention on a fun day all about your dog! I’ll roll all over the grass making squeaky noises and photograph your dog looking their absolute best.

And the best part?

Your dog’s only job is to be their doggie self – distractions and squirrels and tongues out are all 100% OK

STEP 3 - THE ART

Just so you know, this will be your favorite part & probably the hardest part… because how do you choose?

These are photos of your dog… of course you love them! Don’t worry, I’ll guide you through this process and together we can plan how you’ll display the ones you just can’t live without. 

STEP 4 - DELIVERY

After making your selections for albums and image boxes that hold all your favorites and wall art we can design right on your walls so you know exactly how fabulous Fido will love over your couch, your finished – ready to display – artwork will arrive to your door 6-8 weeks after your order. 

how much does it cost?

Well, you could keep trying to take your dog’s photo with your phone…
and keep getting blurry blobs attached to leashes & not so flattering selfies.

Or you could call your friend who photographs weddings…
but has no idea how to work with dogs, and frankly doesn’t appreciate the charm of a slobbery kiss from a giant tongue.

And you can order your own artwork from those places online
and spend hours researching before giving up and just posting them to Facebook where they’ll be lost in the feed in 24 hours.

Classic timeless photographic art of your dog is possible with Atlanta dog photographer.

"Such a wonderful experience! A true professional with has an exceptional knack for animals! Totally recommend!"

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!"

Athens dog photographer Courtney Bryson is an exert in working with dogs.

woof!

Ah, how rude!

I forgot to introduce myself

I’m Courtney – dog mom, professional dog photographer, animal rescuer, marketer, official crazy dog lady of the family. You probably know the type. 

I’m not the photographer for everyone. I play favorites – And my favorites have four furry legs. I’ve often said, “I photograph people, but only if their dog brings them.”

And I’m only half joking.

I’m not the dog photographer for people who love their dogs like family. I’m the dog photographer for people whose dogs ARE family.

If you’ve ever called in to work because your furry kid is sick, you’re in the right place.

If you filter Airbnb for pet friendly listings before even considering a place because you count the dog as family when planning your vacation, this is dog photography designed for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, even your dog can have professional photos. Even if they aren’t trained, even if they can’t be off leash, even if they don’t like other dogs, even if they are blind or deaf or paralyzed, even if they are a puppy or an old puppy. I have worked with them all and we can make beautiful photos of your dog.

What if my dog can't be off leash?

Want to know a secret? 90% of the dogs you see on my website were wearing a leash! The other 10% were all inside a secure fence! And sometimes both! With the magic of photoshop, I can create the off leash images you want while keeping your pet safe. 

My dog is too nervous/excited/untrained to get good images.

For more than 10 years I have worked with rescue dogs and photographed 1,000’s of adoptable dogs & cats. Most of them have ZERO professional training and are going through the scariest experience of their lives. 

We will design the session to fit your dog. If your dog is nervous in crowded areas, we’ll choose a private space. I need less than 1/1000th of a second to capture a great expression. Professional camera gear can stop motion, unlike your cell phone, so even fast moving dogs can have gorgeous portraits. 

What if my dog has a disability?

I have photographed blind dogs, deaf dogs, paralyzed dogs, and dogs with neurological disorders.

Your session is custom designed for your dog, and we work at their pace to keep them comfortable, safe, and happy.

How much should I plan to spend?

As everything is custom, how much you choose to spend is entirely up to you. Artwork begins at $250. Collections start at $1450. 

My dog doesn't have much time left. Can you see us quickly?

I’m so sorry. Our pet’s lives are tragically short. 

Please let me know in your booking inquiry that time is of the essence and I’ll do everything in my power to schedule you as quickly as possible.
