"We are so very happy with how well our pictures turned out! You were so kind and patient with Hank who was shot out of a cannon that evening and could barely sit still! With all the crazies, you were able to capture gorgeous pictures of Hank being his goofy self. I was very grateful for the prompt and organized communication and scheduling. Your organization is quite inspiring and made me feel like I could trust you to deliver an excellent product within the schedule you defined. You did not disappoint!"

"Jessica did an absolutely amazing job photographing our dog! She not only got great action shots, but she also did a great job posing her! She made the entire process from start to finish so much fun! She’s talented and professional and also very personable! I highly recommend Bark & Gold Photography!"

"You worked well with Walter and got some really great shots of him. It was obvious that you studied his client sheet before the session because you knew which words and phrases would get his attention. [My biggest concern was] the leash being in the photo. You did a great job at Photoshopping it out though so that wasn't a problem."

"Anytime we have worked with Jessica she is just 100% professional and very talented. The sessions are always fun because you can imagine what your photos will look like, but once you actually see them...OMG, it's amazing!"

"You absolutely captured George! They are all beautiful and please know that this will have a very special place in our home. Thank you for providing us 'George's senior picture.' You have given us a beautiful keepsake. "

"I was worried that my dogs would not sit still and that would result in not-so-great photo options. Jessica did a great job of capturing my girls in their element, running, swimming, and loving the outdoors! Jessica was very easy to work with and the dogs loved her!"

"I really can't say enough how much I enjoyed our session and how laid back it was. You were perfect for kids and dogs! It was a great experience and your photos are perfect with plenty of product options to choose from."

"[You] got Harley to cooperate in a way I never thought she would! Harley doesn't always like strangers, [and I] wasn't sure if she would behave in a park full of other people and dogs. She was right at home in front of the camera."

"I loved that we got a great whole-family portrait. I also am thrilled about getting some great photos of the dogs together, which can be tough. The dogs really relaxed; you were patient with them and had great suggestions...[like] your idea to do the pictures on the steps, which came out so perfectly."
