This pet photograph was taken of a Border Collie and he belongs to one of the veterinary assistants at Jefferson Veterinary Hospital. I took these series of pet portraits as part of the animal hospital's web redesign - instead of impersonal stock images, each pet photograph on the site is a client's pet or a pet of a staff member, and all photographs were shot around Frederick county, MD.
Meet Bently the dog. I photographed him as part of an update that I've been doing with Jefferson Veterinary Hospital's website, where I've been taking pet portraits of the staff's dogs. I've been really enjoying photographing pets and I am seriously considering adding it to one of my specialities. As the wife of a veterinarian, I think that pet portraiture fits in my portfolio pretty nicely :D
Happy national puppy day!! It's national puppy day - celebrate the cuteness!!!!! This also seems like the perfect day to announce that I am going to start accepting clients for pet portraiture! I focus my photography on the things that I love, and I'm not quite sure why I haven't accepted clients specifically for pet photography before ... I've been doing it on a more personal basis with my pets and include pets as part of my child and senior portrait photography experiences.
If you are looking for a new furry family member, consider adopting from a local animal shelter or rescue!!! If you have a puppy or dog and are looking for a veterinarian, my husband is Dr. Brooks Ahalt over at Jefferson Veterinary Hospital and, not that I'm biased or anything, I think that he's pretty great!!!
