Dog Photography by professional photographer John Yeatman Jr based in Millsboro, Delaware
We pet owners enjoy a special relationship with our furry friends. Whether they are AKC or a rescue or some version in the middle, we love them all the same. Our love for our pets runs deep. They are there for us and we are there for them. We feed them, walk them, pet and cuddle them. And, in turn, they devote their lives to us by keeping us alert to dangers by barking, snuggling us when it’s bedtime, and reminding us in their way that they are hungry because we’ve gotten “busy.”
I love dogs. I relish taking professional dog portraits because I understand how meaningful they are to their owners. I would love to take your dog’s portraits and here’s why. There is something remarkable about seeing your dog in all of his/her character blown up in print on your wall. There is magic in looking them in the eye and sharing the moment. Everyone has cute snaps of their dog on their phone, but they are lost in an endless scroll of other “moments” and screenshots never to be seen again.
Don’t let the time slip away.
My approach and what to expect…
I enjoy seeing my dog smile. You do know dogs smile, right? Whether she is smiling, wanting yet another walk, or it’s time for dinner, she communicates without speaking. Well, sometimes she barks at me, too! Mae is is a large part of our lives here in Southern Delaware. From sun up to sun down and even at nighttime when she sneaks into our bed when she’s cold, she’s there. We love her immensely, and I’m sure you love your dogs, too. All of my family remember her everyday just like she remembers us everyday; So when I take portraits of your dog, I want you to know that I know how special your dog is to you, too.
I professionally photograph your dog so that his/her character shines through and my images are not mere snapshots. I craft each session with your pup personally so the best possible results can be achieved. I take the time to get acquainted with your dogs so they can be comfortable with me, the set, the lights, and the process. We take breaks to keep the stress level down. I share a lot of treats and goodies with our dog models so they end up having a rewarding experience, too. It’s a fun session that lasts about an hour.
Once we are done with the photoshoot, we make selections of your favorites and those get turned into works of art for your tables and walls.
