let’s tell your story
“I was beyond thrilled with my photos! The entire process was seamless, from booking to receiving my photo items. Courtney has a remarkable eye, and a very nice way about her when it comes to interacting with the fur babies.”
“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
– Anatole France.
“My two pups are a handful. Courtney did a fantastic job of getting them to settle down. Our pups pictures turned out beautiful.”

How it Works
The Process from Booking to Artwork
First, we'll design the perfect session to capture your pet at their best. We work at their pace to get the images we've talked about. My years of experience in dog behavior will help me make this a positive experience. Your dog’s only job is to be a dog. And your only job is to relax and have fun.
After your pet photography session, we’ll meet again to see all your images. This is the fun part! You'll choose the images you love and I’ll show you designs for artwork that suit your home & style. You only purchase what you love.
Now, you just relax while I work with local artists and the best professional labs to craft your images into albums, image boxes, canvases, and gorgeous prints on archival paper all based on your selections. I'll deliver your art to you ready to be placed on your walls, tables, and book shelves.
The Art We Create Together
Signature Framed Wall Art
When you’re ready to elevate your style to a work of art, my gorgeous matte archival canvases or traditional photographic art prints framed in a client favorite reclaimed barn wood is the perfect choice to showcase your favorite images.
Classic Wall Art
For simply beautiful displays for your home, I offer modern acrylic glass, contemporary metal, and traditional canvas. We’ll select the finish that is perfect for your home and images.
Perfect for people who want it all! Hand stitched albums with images printed directly on thick luxe paper, an album is a timeless way to display your favorite images. Albums can include ALL the images from your session and include complimentary social media digital files of all included images!
Image boxes are a modern take on the traditional album. Images are printed on archival cotton rag paper. Change up your displays by swapping your images in and out of frames and display blocks. Image boxes include your complimentary social media images of all included images.
Tell your story with a curated collection of your artwork. Using your walls, I’ll design a custom display to perfectly fill your space with your favorite images. The best part, you’ll receive an extra 10% discount on wall art when you choose 3 or more pieces.

Social media files are INCLUDED with every purchased image for sharing with friends & family. High resolution digital files are also available, and are included with ALL create a collection packages.

Most clients find selecting wall art to be the easiest way to start narrowing down their selections. Whether you’re looking for a single piece or a unique wall gallery, we’ll choose the best medium to display your favorite-favorites.
Step 2 - Display Your Favorites
Many people find their story is best told in a collection of their favorite images like an album or image box. You’ll love reminiscing on the couch with your images in the years to come. You can also then add one any digital files or other display pieces.
It’s really that simple. Once you’ve selected your wall art and album or image box take 20% off your ENTIRE order, including any other add ons or digital file packages.
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. Image packages start at starting at $595.
Happy Pets & People
"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!"
