Pet Portraits

Making portraits of people’s pets is about the best job anyone can have. It is incredibly rewarding because of the joy it gives people. I feel honored to be able to make these portraits, especially when the animal has already passed away. It is a great honor and responsibility to capture the essence of the animal for the owner because I know how important it is to them. Thank you to everyone who has hired me to make a portrait of your precious pet.
