Cool Cat Photography is available for private and commercial photo shoots

Dogs and cats make me laugh and smile. I just love their energy, and kookiness. As a photographer and an animal lover I want to capture that big personality through bright, fun and happy photos. 

I take the time to get to know you and your furry friend to help you decide what would be best for the breed. Like kids, animals often have the attention span of a gnat. So I work fast but I am also patient. I work with your pet using positive reinforcement letting them lead the way so I can capture that funny smile, or perpetual gaze. I only book one session per day so my photo sessions are not rushed.


What happens if it rains? A drizzle, no problem. A rain of biblical proportions…let’s re-book or go inside. 🙂 

Where do we take the photos? Photo sessions can take place outdoors, in your house or yard, or in my studio. Choosing the right location is key to putting your pet at ease so that his character shines.

Why should I choose a professional photographer? 
There are several reasons. Ultimately though, it’s a personal choice. But think of it this way: Pets are cherished family members and sadly, they are with us for a much shorter time than we would like. Custom photography provides a personalized experience and gives you keepsakes of special moments that will last a lifetime. A print or a coffee table book can be easily seen, and shared and are not lost in the deep realms of our phones or computers. 

Can you take photos of my other pets? Yes I can as long as it’s part of the same photo session.

What is the difference between the Fine Art Package and the Social Media Package? The Fine Art Package will give you high quality printed photos that you can hang on your wall, and the option to buy a photo album should you choose. The Social Media Package will provide you with images suitable for computer use only so that you can share your photos online to showoff your beautiful pet.

Can I share my photos on social media? I provide a digital copy of each photo with every wall art sized portrait or photos within an album. Not interested in prints and only want digital copies? Purchase the Social Media Package.
