Pets are a part of your family tree!
Many believe that bringing their dog to a portrait studio is too much hassle. And a family portrait session, especially including pets, would be chaos. I get it, I'm a mom, a business owner and I have three pets at home. I also know how treasured these portraits become over time.
- Worried about how your dogs or kids might behave?
- Unsure if you want to be in the photos?
- Concerned a custom photoshoot will be too demanding in terms of time and effort?
“If you’ve seen her photos, you already know Cyndi has an incredible eye. But until you experience her in action you have no idea how lucky you are to have found her. Count your blessings!”
"Wow!!! They are fantastic! I am thrilled with the pictures. I also wanted to tell you that Lincoln said that you were the best photographer he's ever had take his picture.
“Truly, the pictures are amazing. The large print metal is wonderful. Thank you so very much."
"This is our 3rd session with Cyndi. She is fantastic and her photos & ordering options are great. She works wonders with humans and dogs alike to make everyone at ease. We couldn't be happier with the results."
“The photos are wonderful. It is so hard to choose among them.”
“I absolutely love them! The print-on metal portrait has arrived. Its breathtakingly beautiful. The expression in his eyes is really amazing. You do such great work!“
"We couldn't be happier with the photos of our daughter. They were a Father's Day gift and my husband literally cried when he saw them."
"Cyndi takes the time to ask all the right questions about your dog's personality and disposition. Thanks for capturing precious moments of my best friend."
"We had a wonderful experience with Cyndi. We went over to her studio to have pictures of our two-rescue canine babies taken. Cyndi was very patient with our youngest, who was very scared. The picture turned out so great and we were very happy with the results. I would highly recommend Cyndi for your puppy (and human) pictures!"
"This was the most amazing experience for my daughter and her puppy. The pictures turned out absolutely fabulous I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer!!! Every single picture is amazing."
Portraits are just as eternal as the love of our pets and children.
Don't miss out on creating memories of your relationships. After 13 years in business and hundreds of sessions each year, I've personally experienced the joy and magic that creating images in a studio can bring.
My team and I work with you from start to finish to make sure everyone, pets, and kids included, is comfortable during the session.

Hi I’m Cyndi. I’m a pet and child photographer but more importantly, I am a mom and a lifelong dog lover.
I grew up with my doggie best friend, Heidi, and my son grew up with Jasmine, his Dalmatian sister. I know exactly how special the bond we develop with our furry best friend is.
With over 13 years of experience photographing kids, pets, and the families who love them, I've developed a calm, laid-back style that makes subjects comfortable. Smiles and hugs come naturally and we focus on your connections.
