Susan was able to capture Lacey Grace just the way we see her: Sweet, beautiful, happy. The pictures really show Lacey’s personality.

I was nervous about taking my dog for portraits. But Susan allowed Onyx, a sometimes grumpy 13-year-old beagle, to wander around and get comfortable. Susan has a great personality to deal with animals. My advice is, don’t wait to get the pictures done.

We were very impressed that Susan took the time to learn about our dogs, Snarf and Puck, including medical issues. We were nervous about having our dogs photographed as they are not trained. Susan was patient with them (and us) and got wonderful shots. Susan does great work and we would highly recommend her.

Robert Sweeney

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

Susan at Dogpatch Pix produces the sweetest personality plus images of loved pets, ever! She has produced product shots for our company, Purrfectplay, a number of times and we are always delighted by the results. Susan’s work is filled with heart and it shines thru all of her photos.
