To me, dogs are an important part of my life and family and as such, I want to cherish those memories and have beautiful portraits of these valued members of my family. Nowadays everyone has a camera and many take pictures daily that are stored in their phone, but when is the last time you looked at those phone pics? Would you print a phone pic and display it in your home? For many a phone picture of their dog is enough, but for those that believe their beloved dogs are part of the family, professional portraits can capture that bond and help you cherish that relationship.

Dog photography is a specialized niche that requires knowledge of dog behavior and psychology. Hiring a professional photographer that specializes in dogs will help you get the best results. Your photographer should have experience working specifically with animals to bring out their unique personality and beauty. An experienced dog photographer will be able to engage with your dog and capture them in a way that creates art. Even if that photographer is not me, you want to hire a PPA (Professional Photographers of America) dog photographer. PPA photographers have the training, experience, artistic eye, and equipment to produce gallery-quality portraits. A professional dog photographer will provide high quality art with eye-catching color and composition. They will have the expertise to take those images to the next level with professional editing to enhance the color and detail of the portrait and remove any distractions such as leashes, stray hairs, and eye goop or tear stains.

What is a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP)?

To become a CPP is not an easy undertaking. The CPP certification is obtained by completing an intensive program that measures artistic and technical competence through a comprehensive written examination and a rigorous image evaluation. Professional Photographers of America (PPA) currently recognizes fewer than 2,500 CPPs. The PPA is the largest group of professional photographers in the world. They take photography very seriously and their peer-certification process is what really separates the experienced photographers from the enthusiasts.

Consistency. CPPs know how to achieve great results—every time. You get a strong collection of images that tell your story, not a few lucky snapshots, and you will work with someone who knows how to produce a quality image under any circumstances.

Technical Skills. CPPs are more than picture takers. They are students of art, lighting, posing, fashion and even interior design. They combine these elements to create images that fit your unique style and become works of art you will treasure for generations.

Unique Artistry. CPPs have the skills to create unique, customized works of art—not cookie-cutter pictures. They follow an artistic vision. It’s your story captured as a collection of art.

Professionalism. When you hire a CPP, you know you’re getting someone who is willing to go the extra mile to deliver the best possible images. They are business owners who thrive on customer service and satisfaction, and they continuously aim to produce products that exceed your—and their—best expectations. These images are keepsakes whose stories you’ll tell time and time again and treasure forever.

The unconditional love you receive from these wonderful animals is only for a short time. Capture those precious moments and celebrate the special bond you have with your faithful companion with beautiful portraits.
