Welcome to Yellow Mutt Pet Photography. My love for photography began 20 years ago when I took my first photography class in college.  I discovered pet photography five years later after adopting my first dog from the local animal shelter.

Photography remained a hobby until I bought my first DSLR camera. After going digital, I decided to turn my passion of pet photography into a business, and Yellow Mutt Pet Photography was established. Being a business owner and doing something that brings me so much joy is a dream come true.

I specialize in on location, natural light, fine art photography of dogs and cats. My goal is to capture your pets unique character, spirit, and charm through images that are fun, creative, and beautiful.

There is no studio, no intimidating lights, umbrellas or flashes. The photo shoot will be fun and stress free for you and your pet. Choose the location (in Seattle or the surrounding areas)  a favorite park, beach, lake,  your backyard, or leave it up to the photographer. I will do whatever it takes to get that great shot, whether it be standing waist deep in water, or lying down in a puddle of mud; which is very likely in Seattle.

I invite you to explore my galleries. My hope is that you find the photographs inspiring and beautiful. I look forward to having the opportunity to photograph your pet, and creating treasured memories that will last a lifetime.

Serving Seattle, Washington and surrounding areas.

Before you get a dog, you can’t quite imagine what living with one might be like; afterward, you can’t imagine living any other way.
