Testimonials

WHAT A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE! I scheduled a photography session for my 4 month year old golden retriever and Sonya did not disappoint! Sonya went above and beyond to capture the most precious photos of my little pup. She was extremely professional (punctual, well prepared with lots of fun toys to capture my puppy’s attention, courteous and patient). The quality of her work is also exceptional! After a long photo session, she spent tireless hours perfecting even the smallest of details. I have recommended Sonya to all of my friends and family. Overall, I can’t say enough great things about Sonya but I think her great work speaks for itself. -Christina – Bound Brook, NJ

IT SEEMED EVERY PHOTO WAS MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN THE NEXT.
Thanks to Sonya and her amazing artistry, I was able to give my husband, what is now his all time favorite birthday gift. You would think our shoot would be more difficult because we have two large dogs with vastly different personalities. But it certainly wasn’t the case. Our dogs adored Sonya. She spent time bonding with them, gaining their trust (we called her The Dog Whisperer) and the results were spectacular. It seemed every photo was more beautiful than the next. Not only were they stunning, but Sonya totally captured each dogs’ distinct personality perfectly. Her creativity is endless and she is truly an artist. Sonya will not just give beautiful photos; she will capture beautiful memories for you that will last a lifetime. -Mary Lynn – Atlantic Highlands, NJ.

OUR DOGS ALL LOOKED LIKE THEY SHOULD BE ON THE COVER OF A MAGAZINE.
I know it was no small feat to manage a session with three rambunctious dogs in the middle of the woods, with so many natural distractions and I appreciate it, especially after seeing the breathtaking results. She has endless amounts of patience and a gentle nature which dogs love, plus innumerable tricks up her sleeve to get them to look at the camera. Her artist’s eye was on alert the whole time we were together, to find the right light and the right setting for each dog. Our dogs are never off leash and she perfectly photo shopped the leashes out of the stunning final shots for our album. Our dogs all looked like they should be on the cover of a magazine. -Janet – Belford, NJ.

THEY ARE…NOT COOPERATIVE POSERS, YET SONYA MANAGED TO CAPTURE THEIR PERSONALITIES, THEIR SPIRITS AND THEIR SOULS.
We had Sonya photograph our two Bearded Collies and could not be more pleased. They are very longhaired, and active, not cooperative posers, yet Sonya managed to capture their personalities, their spirits and their souls…. amazing. I became teary eyed when we saw the final work. One of our dogs is almost 14, and she looks like a young pup in Sonya’s final work.  It is a gift to have met Sonya as she is a beautiful person and a wonderful photographer. -Sandy – Wall, NJ.

IF IT WASN’T FOR SONYA, I WOULD NOT HAVE THESE BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES OF MY DOGS TO LOOK BACK ON.
She treated my dogs with such love, as if they were her own. If it wasn’t for her, I would not have these beautiful memories of my dogs to look back on. She truly captured the love I have for my dogs and the connection I share with them. I cannot even convey this in my own words, yet her pictures say it all. She actually captured their personalities in all the photos. She puts her heart and soul into all of her work and you can see that. -Francesca – Middletown, NJ.

THE PHOTOS ARE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.
I recently had photographs taken of my black standard poodle by Sonya. He is only a little over a year old so I was a little nervous he would misbehave a little due to his immaturity and Sonya was great to introduce herself to him. She was very calm and soft spoken. Never felt like she was just snapping photos and moving on.  The photos are absolutely amazing. -Shawna – Lakewood, NJ.

PHENOMENAL PICTURES OF OUR DOG DEXTER.
Phenomenal pictures of our dog Dexter. Sonya is a fantastic photographer. Her pictures bring out a view of your dog you don’t notice normally. We’ve gotten many compliments on his photo album. Sonya is very patient and caring for clients and their owners. -Annabel – West Orange, NJ.

SONYA MADE IT SUCH A FUN EXPERIENCE AND WAS SO GOOD WITH OUR DOGS.
We had such a wonderful experience and she was able to capture both of our dog’s personalities…. We were so pleased with the photos that we purchased two wall mounted photographs and a coffee table book. Sonya gave us photos to treasure forever that were the highest quality. She made it such a fun experience and was so good with our dogs. It was so hard to narrow down our choices of the photographs since all of them were so great! She is very professional, but also very loving and caring towards her subjects. -Cindy – Brielle, NJ.

SHE GOT SO MANY GREAT SHOTS; IT WAS HARD TO PICK ONES TO FRAME.
Sonya is so sweet and clearly loves her furry subjects. Bear is still a puppy at about 18 months old with boundless energy and not much ability to pay attention. I could not believe how Sonya could get his attention (and keep it) even with other dogs or birds around at the beach. (She has many tricks up her sleeve.) Did I mention she found an amazing location at a nearby beach? That allowed dogs? She got so many great shots; it was hard to pick ones to frame. -Dorothy – Middletown, NJ.

SONYA’S STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY IS PHOTO JOURNALISTIC… CAPTURING THE TRUE ESSENCE OF YOUR PET’S SPUNKY PERSONALITY.
Her photography is fantastic- she accurately captures each pet’s unique personality in their photos. She is patient, kind, passionate, creative and a true pet lover herself-which is evident in the photos she takes. We had a hard time selecting just a few of them! Not only did we love working with Sonya but we also loved her style of photography. It’s photo journalistic in nature capturing the true essence of your pet’s spunky personality in a natural setting. -Cara – Westfield, NJ.

SONYA’S CALM DEMEANOR AND PATIENCE WITH ROXY PRODUCED THE MOST AMAZING PHOTOS I HAVE EVER SEEN!
I received a photo session with Sonya from my friend as a Christmas gift. I was reluctant to call because my Chow Chow Roxy is extremely timid around people she does not know and I was sure things would not go well with the photo shoot. Boy, was I wrong. Sonya’s calm demeanor and patience with Roxy produced the most amazing photos I have ever seen! -Susan – Brick, NJ.

THEY BROUGHT TEARS TO MY EYES AS SOON AS I SAW HOW BEAUTIFUL THEY WERE.
Sonya came to my house to take pics of my two elderly pits. She was wonderful!!! She stayed as long as it took to get great shots of my pups, and the results were perfect. They brought tears to my eyes as soon as I saw how beautiful they were. She captured each dog’s personality and I now have forever images of each dog exactly as I remember them -Lisa -Belford, NJ.
