Whether you have questions or are ready to book, click the Contact button to get started! We'll chat about any concerns and then date/location preferences to plan your perfect session. After completing the booking link, you'll receive a comprehensive Welcome Guide with tons of tips.
The fun part! We’ll meet up and spend and hour or so capturing a variety of posed and candid images to show your pet's personality and tell their story. I'll guide you each step of the way. I find the best images come from going with the flow.
Approximately two weeks after the session your proof gallery will be ready and we’ll meet (virtually or safely in-person) so you can view samples of prints, canvases and albums to help you decide what investment works best for you.
Once your order is delivered you can hang the wall art and flip through the pages of your album to remember the moment and experience your memories everyday.

"Tonya is awesome! I had many stunning and gorgeous photos of my cat Chobee! She knows cats very well and how to handle for amazing photos. I enjoyed the photo session with her. She is kind, gentle, generous, and so professional. Because her photos are super fantastic, I made prints, a Canvas, an acrylic, and the deluxe album! Everything is very high quality. I never regret this investment. (My original plan was to buy digital files but I changed my mind because of her stunning photos)."

"Tonya was such a pleasure to work with! She is the perfect photographer if you’re looking to combine great photography and working with animals. She’s very patient, understanding, and accommodating. I really appreciate Tonya’s expertise and opinion. In addition, she is honest, genuine, and caring. I really like Tonya’s artistic style. Her pictures are clear, natural, and vibrant. In a few years, we will be going back to Tonya to shoot in a different location. Thank you, Tonya!"

"I’m breathless. Your work with my Maggie is beyond beautiful. Thank you so much for the quality and quantity of time you gave to photographing her. You are indeed everything in person that your website shows. My precious Maggie left this earth in February, I still savor the amazing photos you took of her two years ago. Having you capture her life on film was the greatest investment I ever made."

"Tonya photographed my rescued pit bull, Peanut, who believes the world is a very dangerous place and all cameras will steal her soul. Peanut instinctively runs from cameras. And yet Tonya managed to get not just one or two great shots but so many fantastic shots it was difficult to choose.
Tonya is professional and super talented. Plus she's nice, making the whole photo session a lot of fun."
