can i be honest...?

Dogs are my kryptonite.

I can’t remember a time where I didn’t stop to pet one, or go out of my way to ooooh and ahhh over the dog hanging out of the car on the road.

Nothing makes me more excited than the thought of all my fellow dog lovers having beautiful portraits of their pets to hang in their homes forever.

I know more than most how unpredictable our pets can be. That’s why in each session I strive to capture both posed and unposed photos of your pet to showcase their unique personality.

 I’ll keep both you and them happy as I roll around the floor, make crazy faces, and bribe them with treats to get the perfect shot.

Olivia is AMAZING and so fun to work with! I loved our session so much - and we even brought our 4 month old german shepherd puppy and we got beautiful photos! Olivia has a quick turnaround time, and she is so personable during our session. Highly recommend working with Olivia!

Olivia did such an amazing job capturing the spirit and spunk of our little Duncan! I was so nervous about his shoot because he is a tiny puppy and I knew he wouldn’t listen or cooperate, but Olivia’s love for dogs was apparent and made us both feel so comfortable. She had the utmost patience when he got distracted and somehow magically got amazing pictures despite his energy level. I can’t recommend her enough, and I’m so grateful that we have photos to always remember how tiny he once was!

Olivia was INCREDIBLE!! The amazing photos she took of my puppy golden retriever perfectly capture Penny's personality. You can tell this girl loves pups! I would highly recommend Olivia to anyone wanting to capture a special moment with your dog! Such a great experience!

We had such a wonderful session with Olivia, the dog whisperer! My pup gets quite crazy and Olivia made not only me, but my anxious dog as comfortable as well. She was amazing at the pre-communication and helped us feel prepared for our session together. She's sweet as can be and TRULY cares about her clients and the final product she's delivering. Moments with our beloved dogs are SO worth capturing and photos from our session are proudly hung center on the gallery wall in our home! Thank you, Olivia!

Have a question?

next question

How do I prepare my pet for their session?

I recommend taking your pup for a short walk or having some play time before your session. This way they’re a little more tired and calm, but not wiped out! 

What should I bring?

Bring whatever outfits, collars, or accessories that you’d like! Whatever you think showcases your pups personality. Don’t forget to wear something you feel comfortable in too!

My dog is kind of naughty, is that ok?

I require that all dogs have a basic level of obedience. This means they should understand sit, stay, and come when called upon. Still concerned about your pup? Shoot me an email! 

Every pup deserves a close up!
