It’s not just a gorgeous photo. It’s a declaration.
The bond that you share with your pet is unbreakable, and it deserves to be documented.
The tilt of their head, that cute kink in their ear, the wag of their tail when they hear your voice, the way their face contorts uncontrollably when you wave their favorite treat in the air...
Hi, I’m Allison Schmidt, Houston-based pet photographer, design junkie, super friendly lady, big time dreamer.
It’s my mission to help you capture your pet’s unique personality, so you can keep it for a lifetime, in your home, on your walls, and firmly in your heart.
With a decade of pet photography experience, a lifetime of dog ownership and showing - and the energy to outrun any Jack Russell - for me, working with animals has been a lifelong passion.
As a kid, I watched my parents raise and show dogs, and take home the occasional ‘Group First’. And in my teens? Let’s just say I spent more time working in my parent’s kennel than hanging out with my boyfriend (don’t worry, we eventually married, but the poor guy still plays second fiddle to Cora, our beloved Pembroke Welsh Corgi).
For me, it’s not just about artful angles, picture-perfect composition, or a beautiful backdrop, the beauty of a photo is capturing the personality of the pet that’s in it. Their endearing quirks, silly streaks, and slobbery affections, I zoom in on it all and capture what makes them so special to you.
I could tell you I’m the ultimate dog whisperer who is able to tame any panicky pooch into polite submission, but that wouldn't be entirely true…
I do have an affinity with most animals I meet, but really, I just love them, so I’m willing to do whatever it takes to get that one perfect shot, even if it means getting bowled over by a muddy set of paws, running through knee-deep water or waiting patiently while they *inspect* every. single. tree. (For me, it’s all part of the fun.)
