Touched By a Dog Sessions

Pet photography is a growing, national phenomenon with new photographers appearing every year.  So, why invest in a session with Touched By a Dog rather than someone else?  There are too many reasons to ignore…

~ I have 6 years working in the pet photography industry.

~ I am a professional dog trainer of 16 years (and a 2nd generation dog trainer).  I can work with all kinds of dogs!

~ I am a professional interior designer with a background in art.  I enjoy assisting my clients with wall art that coordinates with their home. 

~ I give each client a unique, customized experience from the initial consult call, to the session, and ending with an in-person image reveal/order appointment in my office.

~  My images are finely crafted from years of editing training with an eye for composition, art, and most importantly…capturing your dog’s personality.

 When you book a session at Touched By a Dog Photography, you are truly making an investment in priceless memories.  I have a variety of locations within Spokane County to accommodate various styles, from adventurous to modern to traditional. We will use those images to create exceptional artwork for your home.

Wondering if your dog is too shy, nervous, hyper, etc…for a session? They can’t sit, stay, or down? No worries! I have worked with ALL kinds of dog behavior.  In fact, the majority of my clients come to me with the usual behaviors you would see in a companion dog. It is okay if they don’t listen! I take my time with each dog and know how to respond to various behaviors so that both you and the dog(s) are comfortable. We go over all your dog’s behaviors prior to the session so that you have the best experience possible.

Concerned about your dog remaining on leash? I’ve got you covered! Each image is expertly edited for leashes and collar removal so that you won’t see a trace of either. If you want your dog off leash during your session, he/she will need to be 100% reliable on a recall. And, it will be dependent on our location as most major parks in the county have leash laws.


 Our homes are a reflection of who we are and what we value.  We fill the empty walls with art and images that bring us beauty, joy, and memories.  That essence helps to create our sense of home and family.  Using images that mean the most to you, printed products from Touched By a Dog Photography is what most clients choose to invest in for their home.  A variety of styles, types, and finishes are available.  Click on the images to the left to view samples.
