My Pet Portraits are all about love. Love the dogs. Love the creative work. Love to share.

Whether your pet is sitting still or running free, I enjoy the challenge of capturing essential moments as they unfold.

I work with you to select the right environment, the best light. Then, together, we encourage your dog to do the things he/she enjoys most. The end results are natural, authentic expressions of their personality.  

After the shoot, and your favorite shot(s) have been selected, the creative work begins. This may involve color and contrast adjustments, combining two or more images into one, and/or inserting an appropriate scenic background. All final decisions are based on your preferences.

For me, each portrait session is an adventure. It’s fun! For more information please contact: susanophoto@gmail.com

Born and raised in Philadelphia, I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Moore College of Art, and a Master of Fine Arts from Temple University.

At nineteen I began shooting for Associated Press; this experience is the foundation of my journalistic style today. For over 35 years I have traveled worldwide on assignments. Over time, my vision and craft have evolved to the highest level of mastery.
