Dawn McBride-Pet Photographer

My name is Dawn and I specialize in animal and pet photography and portraiture in Salt Lake City, UT and surrounding areas. Since beginning this endeavor, I’ve been asked numerous times: “Why pet photography?”

Well, I would like to introduce you to Milo, the wonder-mutt. I fell in love with this little (60 lb) pup before he was even born. A woman in Paragonah, UT, –who breeds border collies– had a little mishap with her husky who was in heat. She was anxious to have some owners lined up to take them off her hands as soon as possible. A border collie/husky mix? I found it hard to imagine a more possibly disastrous combination. Naturally, I asked her to let me know as soon as they were born. I picked Milo out from a picture of the litter she e-mailed me, and waited impatiently during those long 8 weeks while he was weened.

From the moment I finally got to hold my fuzzy love, he snuggled right into my neck and immediately I knew he was mine and I was his.

For anyone who has never truly known the unconditional love of a dog, it’s hard to put into words. Milo has been my hiking, skiing and running companion. He’s licked the tears off my face after a particularly trying day, he snuggles me in the winter and was my nightly body pillow during my pregnancy. He makes me laugh on a daily basis and has been the source of near fatal heart explosions from the pure love he provokes. He is my original fuzzy love and for whom I named the business.

It’s hard to imagine my life without him and for that reason, I decided I wanted to document as many of his goofy expressions and special quirks as I could through pet photography. I came to realize how much I loved capturing these moments and in my muse, found a whole new adventure.

In capturing these innate qualities that make our animals so uniquely perfect, we are able to treasure their memories of a life well lived and well loved, long after they’ve paved the way for us across that rainbow bridge. Because if there are no dogs in heaven, well, as Will Rogers said, “If there are no dogs in heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went”.

With love,

Let’s face it; if you’re here, you love your fur baby (or feather baby, or scale baby) like others love their skin babies. They’re an integral part of your family and deserve to be treated as such. What better way is there to spoil your pet than a photo shoot filled with treats, belly rubs, and a great photo. At Fuzzy Love Pet Photography, my mission is to capture the moments, mannerisms, expressions and love that make your pet exceptional.

A photography session is more than simply getting a picture of your pet.  You’re creating keepsakes that will be cherished for a lifetime in honor of these amazing creatures that bring so much love into our lives.

I wish I could give 10 stars. Dawn captured the soul of my little guy, Chewy. Dawn came into our life at just the right time. She took beautiful photos of Chewy, shortly before he passed away from cancer. I can’t say enough good things about Dawn. She is a very compassionate pet photographer and I’m sure I will use her again in the future. I recommend her to anyone who wants gorgeous photos of their fur baby and art to always cherish.

Dawn came to our office to do mini sessions at our Bring your dog to Workday event and it was a blast. The photos turned out great, our employees were happy and a great time was had by all. Dawn is incredible and I am so glad we found her!

This was the best shoot I have ever experienced. We had two dogs and our 1 year old that she had to make look good and she knocked it out of the park. She made us feel comfortable and we loved all of her original ideas.

Shelter Work

Since the beginning of 2017, I’ve had the privilege of working with the incredible and devoted staff at the Utah Animal Adoption Center photographing the cats and kittens just waiting for their forever homes; such as Baby Godzilla pictured here on the job, as photographer’s assistant.

If you find yourself in the market for a new fuzzy family member, please consider adoption. No matter the breed or personality you’re looking for, I can practically guarantee if you venture in, you’ll fall in love.

FAQ

What Should I Wear?

This is going to depend on a few factors such as the location of the shoot, what color your pets are, and most important, what you feel comfortable in and makes you feel good. These are details that we’ll discuss during our pre-session consultation.

What If It Rains?

As much as I love a sopping wet pup with spiky fur sticking out every which way, I understand this is probably not what you have in mind. We will simply reschedule for a later date with no fees incurred.

Deposit?

A non-refundable $50 deposit is due at the time of your booking to reserve your session date. Creation Fees are non-refundable and the balance will be collected on your session date. I require a 48 hour notice if you need to reschedule your Portrait Session. There is a $20 re-booking fee after that time.

I have specific poses in mind

No one knows your pet better than you do. If you have specific poses in mind with a favorite toy or your pet has a unique trick you would like memorialized, we can absolutely capture that.
