Have you been wishing you had a good photograph of your furry family members, but do not want the hassle of loading them up to take to a photo studio? There are many photographers that will consider photographing a pet. 


However, very few will come to you. We come to you! I will photograph your pets in your home, in a natural outdoor setting or in my mobile studio especially equipped for pet photography. If you like a formal portrait with a backdrop and studio lights, it will only take me a moment to set them up.   

With a lifetime of experience as a photographer, I specialize in pet photography. I have a strong commitment to client satisfaction. I am dedicated to capturing your pet’s personality in photographic prints or canvas prints and photo gifts you can keep forever to preserve your special relationship.

The typical session lasts about an hour and is carefree and lighthearted.  I will get to know the natural qualities of your pet that will be captured in the photos. The session will be quick and fun. Photos will be available immediately for viewing on a laptop and later uploaded to your own gallery on the web, giving you a chance to look them over at your leisure.

"You folks are real pros. Not only did you capture Cooper's likeness, but you were able to capture his personality.  And I think he even enjoyed the experience. Normally, he is very camera shy, but from these shots it is evident that he is have enjoying the experience almost as much as we are enjoying the photos. Thank you so very much".

"What really impressed me the most was the convenience. The simple fact that you came out to our ranch to take the pictures was great!  The pictures speak for themselves. You were able to capture the beauty and the spirit of my horse, not to mention his inquisitiveness when he walked up to you during the middle of the session! I am looking forward to having you take the pictures of my mare in a couple weeks. I have been telling all of my pet loving friends about your services, so hopefully you will hear from one or more of them soon".

"Hi, Joe and Andee,


 My pet is not the typical dog or cat, so I was a little apprehensive about his suitability.  Not too many people are comfortable when they see a rat, not even if it is a very sweet and gentle pet. Well, Joe certainly didn't have a problem with my Stuart Little, and neither did his kind and very patient wife Andee. 

Needless to say, the results of Stuart Little's and buddy Velour's photo session are outstanding. It was hard to narrow down all the ones I wanted. Joe really captured not only their good looks, but also their personality - I'm so delighted that I didn't miss out on this opportunity. If you want excellent photos that really capture the spirit of your precious pet, Joe’s  artistic and technical skills won't disappoint you! I am enjoying showing off your work too!


Many thanks again"!




“We appreciated your fast service, your ability to get the animals posed, the many choices of photographs that you took. The quality of the pictures was great and the turn around time quite fast as I said before. The communication over the email worked extremely well. We definitely would use your service again and will highly recommend you!”

 You really spent a lot of time with our dog, Wilson. Your great attention to detail really showed up in the photos we purchased from you. When we saw the perfect body shot and a different head shot that we preferred it was, “no problem” for you. You just made the adjustment and it looks perfect and natural. We have him proudly displayed on the front table of our formal living room. Thanks again for the great experience of pet photography"!

"I want to thank you for the wonderful job you did on the pictures.  I was very pleased on how you put together the two pictures of each dog and made it look like they were taken together. I also loved the mugs. You did a great job in the handling of the dogs while taking the pictures.  I didn't think it could ever be done considering it was their first time and they never listen. You and your wife are truly exceptional when it came to handling them. I will recommend you to all my friends and look forward to the next time we want more pictures taken of our little ones".

Thanks, Mike F.



"Joe and Andee did a wonderful job of getting my dogs to cooperate with having their pictures taken.  We were finally able to get some great pictures of Muffin, who normally runs from the camera.  The finished portraits are something that we will always cherish".

"Having pictures of our animals taken in their home setting was a joy. After working with our horses and seeing the results, we could not pass up having the rest of the "family" taken at home. It was easy on the critters. Joe and wife, Andee, caught our cats and dogs being themselves. His professionalism and friendly manner put everyone at ease. It was a grand experience for all of us".


Thanks, Linda & Evan




"Joe is an outstanding photographer. He works really well with animals as he has a lot of patience and is willing to get "the best shot." He produces quality work and works well with you and your pets. We have two cats that aren't very cooperative and Joe understood and had a lot of pateince. I will be using Joe again in the future".


Thanks Joe!!



"My experience with Joe’s photography was TERRIFIC!  Joe has a keen eye to capture the personality and movement.  My initial result at viewing my photo's actually made me cry.  You just don't realize how beautiful your beloved 4 legged family member till you see them captured in print by a professional".

"I have two horses, a 5 yr old and a 26 yr old. Joe took "liberty" photos of them (separately). The photos are spectacular! He has captured little nuances of their personality that you know exist but would never expect to see in a example is Hank with his very "concerned" look in his eyes! And Holly with her laid back attitude and soft eyes. He even captured her at the run with one of the ranch dogs running beside her outside the arena fence! So I had two collages done of each of them, 16" x 20" and placed on canvas. The look is absolutely incredible. I have the perfect spot to show them off and that is on my dining room wall! I couldn't be more pleased with Joe's level of cooperation about moving pictures around, balancing for color and motion. I just love my pictures"!!

"Hi Joe, just wanted to thank you and your wife Andee for coming to the ranch for our first horse photo shoot today. You were both so friendly to all of us that it made for a very enjoyable afternoon. The photos of my horse you were able to capture were incredible; also being able to see previews of the shots on your computer that afternoon was great. Somehow you caught her attitude and her beauty. It’s amazing what professional photographers can catch with their cameras. Thank you again for photos I would have never been able to take myself. Everyone who knows me has seen them more than once".
