Custom Pet Portraits for Pittsburgh Dogs & Their People
Bark & Gold Photography celebrates the joy and love between Pittsburgh pets and their people through wall art, fine art albums, and other heirloom products.
This is Your Story Told Your Way.
Whether you choose a painterly bespoke masterpiece 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 to technology gone wrong.
This is your story told your way, and I can't wait to capture it for you.
No Sit, Stay, or Struggle Required!
Despite how it may feel when you try to photograph them on your own, chaos and challenges are not a requirement for capturing natural, expressive images of your furry family members. (Neither is a solid sit or stay, but that can be our little secret.)
When you book your pet's photography session, we say goodbye to struggles and frustrations and hello to beautifully composed, personality-filled portraits for your home. It's your dog as you know and love him.
Because He's Never "Just A" Dog.
He's your confidant and constant. The one who accepts you unconditionally. Your protector and safe space. The only one you'd sacrifice four feet of your bed for just so he can continue to sleep comfortably.
I relate because my Hunter is the same to me.
"Just a" dog people aren't my people, but you are. I know that because you're here. Welcome home. (I know you won't mind the dog hair on the furniture.)
"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."
Archie's mom Quinn
"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 she left our house because I could not believe how gorgeous they were. If you are on the fence about booking a session, DO IT!"
Izzy & Moose's mom Ashley
"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 Jes was amazing with her and really helped her attention and focus. I can not speak highly enough of the entire process. Thank you!"
