Digital images may seem like the go-to product for clients, especially in a digital world that loves to share memories through email and social media,  but are they really your best option?

Lily & Jackson – South Park Pet Photography

In early July, I had the pleasure of meeting Jackson, a basset hound-border collie mix, and his adopted sister Lily, a whippet-Jack Russell.

Sandy & Tortola, Bonded Chihuahuas – South Park Pet Photography

I always say I enjoy a challenge. When Sandy and Tortola’s mom Emma shared her one wish for her bonded Chihuahuas’ calendar session, I knew I had to make it happen. “Sandy and Tortola are such fun dogs with such fun personalities, but I feel like no one but my boyfriend and my mom get to Read More

Cersei the Rottweiler – Beaver County Pet Photography

Surely you’ve heard the saying, “Love is a four-legged word.” Cersei, the four-year-old rottweiler whom I photographed for the upcoming FurKid Rescue pet calendar, is proof of that. Just ask her mom Mindy. Although she was the one who entered Ceresi in to the calendar contest, Mindy, a self-proclaimed cat-person, did not grow up with Read More
