Welcome to Bark & Gold Photography

Is your phone’s camera roll filled with blurry furry faces of your pup as she wiggles away?

Does the number of “hide sites” and camouflage techniques your cat knows as soon as you pull out your camera rival that of a military sniper?

Does your dog suffer from #photographersdogsyndome? (You know, that pouty, stink-eyed expression you get right as you press the shutter button.)

Have you ever taken the perfect photo only to lose it to outdated technology or a stomach-turning hard drive crash?

If you answered yes to any of these, know you're not alone.

Despite how it may feel when you try to photograph them on your own, chaos and challenges like these are not a requirement for capturing natural, expressive images of your furry family members. When you book a Bark & Gold Photography session, we say goodbye to these struggles and frustrations and hello to award-winning, beautifully composed, personality-filled portraits for your home.

Whether you choose a large wall art piece to fill an empty space above your fireplace, a stunning fine art album filled with all of your session images, or a luxurious heirloom folio box, I'm there every step of the way to deliver a personalized experience you won't forget, natural and expressive images you'll love, and five-star artwork to last generations…without the fear of losing your memories forever to technology gone wrong.

If you spend more time telling your dog "I'll miss you" as you leave for work than you do your significant other or willingly sacrifice four feet of your bed so your pup can sleep comfortably, then you're going to love the Bark & Gold Photography experience!

"You were so kind to Archie and us throughout the whole process! You were truly able to capture Archie's loveable and happy personality in all of the photos! I really enjoyed how relaxed and stress-free everything was. You knew just how to position Archie and the whole process was seamless and fun. It was such a unique and meaningful experience."

"We are very pleased with our photo session and finished product. I had concerns initially about my dog's mobility issues and shorter patience, but Jess was amazing with her and really helped her attention and focus. I cannot speak highly enough of the entire process. Thank you!"

"Jessica is so incredibly talented. I have two dogs that are quite crazy. Jessica was so calm the whole time and worked her magic! Her calmness made me feel reassured. At our reveal, I could not believe how beautiful the pictures turned out! I lowkey cried when Jessica left our house because I could not believe how gorgeous they were. If you are on the fence about booking a session, DO IT!  I can’t wait to display my fur babies all over our home!"
