From the moment our PBGVs entered the studio to the exuberant response from everyone who received a picture as a Christmas gift, this experience has been wonderful. The most frequent comment from people who have seen the photos is that they capture the essence of each dog.

Susan’s patience and enthusiasm was picked up by our pups and it made for a pleasant experience for all parties. And the quality of the photos! At the end of the day, the real challenge was selecting the pictures we wanted from a set of dozens of great options. Thank you, Susan.

Well what wasn’t wonderful???? The photo session went very well. Kynda who is very animated did very well when Susan worked with her to pay attention and Sarai (Who is having health issues) stayed alert to Susan during the entire shoot. Believe it or not both dogs were happy and high stepping as they left the session. As far at the photography, AMAZING! I ordered a bunch of prints and filled out a whole wall with the darlings. Susan was able to capture their personalities perfectly and the quality is amazing. I will (and have) recommend her work to everyone! Thank you Susan! Kynda

I loved the photos! You did an amazing job with Mr Charlie and he loved your studio (the healthy homemade treats were a big hit)! My family can’t believe how well you captured his personality! I’m so glad that I had Charlie’s photos taken as the photos are as special as he is! Thanks so much! Lauren

Susan just made the whole session a wonderful time and her pictures capture my dogs just wonderfully. I got the pictures as presents and for myself and I am just so thrilled by our family portraits and the individual pictures. So many pictures caught the different expressions of my dogs I really had a hard time choosing what pictures to purchase. Every dog or/ cat family should have a portrait session done by Susan.
