Sharing our lives with pets is a bittersweet experience. Like children, our pets grow up far too quickly. They change and evolve every day. Our puppies and kittens mature in the blink of an eye, developing new skills daily. Our adult dogs transition to seniors, seniors transition to geriatric, and, before we know it, we're saying goodbye.
Because pets are family and our connection with them is one of the most profound we'll ever experience, we encourage our clients and friends to look into pet photography in Yorktown to create everlasting memories with and of their beloved pets. Following we'll share two of our favorite local pet photographers and some of their beautiful work.
The Yorktown Area's Leading Pet Photographers
Debbie Leanne is Australian by birth and American by marriage. After marrying in Australia, she and her husband, Doug, moved to Texas to start their lives together. After completing 20 years in the military, Doug and Leanne moved to Yorktown, Virginia where Debbie established Debbie Leanne Portraits in 2009. Leanne's portraits are elegant and artistic; they can be captured in her studio or outdoors.
Nicole Moyer, owner of Sweet Ellie Photography, is an award-winning pet photographer based in Williamsburg, Virginia. Nicole developed a passion for photographing pets after adopting her rescue pup, Ellie, almost a decade ago. Her goal is to capture each pet's personality and create everlasting memories through her one-of-a-kind natural light portraits. Following are a few beautiful examples of Nicole's work with dogs.
Debbie and Nicole are the Yorktown area's leading pet photographers; I highly recommend their work.
What to Expect from a Pet Photography Session
With most professional pet photographers, pet photography sessions start with a phone or email consultation. During the consultation, the photographer learns about your pet's personality and your goals for the session.
Professional pet photographers like Debbie and Nicole are the best option for pet photo shoots because they understand how to connect with unfamiliar pets to bring out their best side. They work with pets to create an engaging environment, leverage tools, treats, and props to capture and hold the pet's attention, and use tried-and-true methods for getting the most out of their time with your family and pet(s).
A Great Gift Idea
In addition to being the perfect gift for yourself, a professional pet photography session makes for a great gift idea for fellow pet lovers in your life. Holidays, weddings, birthdays, you name it, a pet photography package is sure to make someone's day. For this reason, pet photographers often sell gift certificates to make giving a session seamless.
Pet photography sessions are the gift that keeps on giving. Recipients get to enjoy the session with their pet and can then hold on to the memories long after they've had to say goodbye. Few gifts increase in sentimental value as well as a pet photography session will. The experience and the memories truly last a lifetime.
