The woman behind The camera

Dawn McBride-Salt Lake City, Utah Pet Photographer

dog photographer

I’m Dawn, the photographer behind Fuzzy Love Photography where I create an experience that captures the bond of love and unique connection between humans and pets.

I love the unexpected and manifest that in my work. I believe in the humor of whimsy, hand-written notes, and a good glass of wine.

I aim for your client experience to be exceptional with heightened satisfaction by creating the extraordinary. I value my client’s trust and strive to earn not only your repeat business but your friendship.

You don’t know it yet; your animal doesn’t know it yet, but I do. I already know that I am madly in love with your pet and I can’t wait to meet you.




















Let’s face it; if you’re here, you’re probably a teensy bit obsessed with your pet. You’re compassionate and independent and probably a bookworm. You’re definitely not worried about getting a little dirty. You love to snuggle your furry family members, especially on a rainy afternoon. You know your attention-grabbing bird trills could use a little help, and that’s where I come in!

At Fuzzy Love Photography, I design a unique, custom experience of creating beautiful memories with your pet that are transformed into works of art.

My mission is to capture the moments, mannerisms, expressions and love that make your pet exceptional; all while resisting the urge to babble at them in baby talk.

Every photoshoot has a $150 session fee.

Matted, framed and ready to hang collections start at $550.

Individual pieces start at $65.

Orders over $500 placed in the first 7 days of your gallery reveal will receive the $150 session fee back in the form of credit towards your purchase.

Payment plans available upon request.

Prior to booking a session, I'll ask a few (fine, sometimes a lot) questions to get an idea of what it is you're looking for to ensure I'll be a good fit to meet your needs. Whether you're wanting on location or in-studio, we'll discuss the details to make sure you and your pet are comfortable with the process and ready to have fun.

The Session

There are no time limits during my sessions. They typically last about an hour or until I feel I have a good selection of images for you to choose from.


Gallery Reveal

Approximately 2-3 weeks after your session, you'll receive a link via email to view your fully edited online gallery from which you'll create a "favorites" list. Once your products arrive, I'll ensure the quality meets my standards, then make arrangements to hand deliver your order.

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.

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.

My Dog is impossible to get pics of

I have plenty of tricks and treats up my sleeve to ensure I capture a good selection of images for you to choose from. Often, shots of your doggo showing off it’s personality make some of the best photos!

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.
