Heidi creates classic and spunky photographs that idolize your dog.


It's all about your dog

It all begins with an initial consultation. At this point, Heidi will listen as you describe your photo preferences and respond with recommendations for location, props and ideas.   

Each shoot is customized to create photos that reflect your dogs personality.

During your session Heidi will find the most opportune ways to document your dog's personality. After the session, Heidi will assist you in creating art that compliments your goals, style, decor, and budget. From beginning to end, it's all about creating beautiful and contemporary photos that highlight the best aspects of your dog's personality.

Dogs and Chicago

Photographing your dog on location is one of my most requested sessions. I creates a great opportunity to think about your favorite chicago landmarks, your dog's favorite spots and combining them into a shoot. 

Photographing your pet is a something you might only do once so think about what you want to capture and combine it with one of Chicago's awesome locations. It's a good idea to think about the shoot with the end result in mind....what might you ultimately want to create with the photos...a wall collage, an album?  

Photographing your dog on location in Chicago is a great way to create art that is personal and special.

Not only will Heidi capture both your dog's personality and present you with photographs with depth and beauty, but she also offers truely unique, artist-made products created specifically for her dog and puppy photographs. x
