Welcome to Austin Pet Portraits

The purpose of my pet portrait photography is to create images that will forever remind you of the special relationship between you and your pet- a relationship usually marked by unconditional love. It is also to create a work of art.

A successful image is one where the pet's personality and spontaneity shine through.

To accomplish this I work in various visual styles. Whether a classic look, a contemporary look, or a whimsical digital composite, my approach is one of creating a piece of fine art- with all the attention to detail that that entails.

Although I can work with photographic film using a medium format film camera, I usually create my images with a digital camera and a computer.

One aspect of working digitally is that there is simply less distance between what I can imagine and what I can create. Even in cases where I get most of what you want in the initial picture, I find there is usually something I can do to further enhance the final image working digitally.

I look forward to the fun and entertaining experience of photographing your pets while providing you with excellent customer service and satisfaction. Thank you for your interest in Austin Pet Portraits.
