SONYA WAS ABLE TO CAPTURE BERT THE PUG’S INNER SPIRIT AND WHIMSICAL PERSONALITY

What a wonderful experience we had with Sonya. The photo session was so much fun. Sonya was able to capture Bert the Pug’s inner spirit and whimsical personality. The photos were all so great that it was very hard to choose. And the final products came out amazing.

WHEN I SAW THE PHOTOS, I WAS OVERJOYED! 

I was so impressed with how quickly she was able to capture adorable poses. Sonya worked hard and fast to get Bogey’s portfolio ready, and when I saw the photos, I was overjoyed! I want to say that in addition to her great talent, Sonya is such a warm, caring person who has a wonderful way with dogs. I have worked with her several times as our dog has grown older, and would highly recommend her to anyone who is as obsessed with their dog as we are!

Sonya is an amazing photographer!

I had such a positive experience through the entire process. She captured wonderful photos. She’s well planned out and was able to change up photos at the session when I decided to add my mom in. I look forward to getting more by Sonya! I would highly recommend Sonya to all who want a Pawsitive experience and outstanding photos!! 🐾🐶

SHE PROVIDED US WITH AN ALBUM THAT WILL BE TREASURED FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES

So happy we found Sonya, she was excellent! The entire process was perfect; from the initial phone conversation through planning the shoot and receiving the framed prints. Everything came out better than imagined. She captured the true essence of our pups and provided us with an album that will be treasured for the rest of our lives.

THE END RESULT IS BEYOND ANYTHING I COULD HAVE ENVISIONED AND I AM SO THANKFUL TO HAVE SUCH BREATHTAKING PHOTOS OF OUR BOYS.

The opportunity to work with Good Doggy Photography has been one of the most special and rewarding experiences of my life. I could not be happier with the outcome. In my search for dog photographers, I came across Sonya’s website and I was blown away by her work.

Sonya is a wonderful person and true professional. She is extremely collaborative, talented, thorough, communicative and thoughtful. Her heart really shines through her work and she really loves what she does. I could not be more pleased with the high-caliber quality of her work!

WOW! What an amazing experience!

I wanted a dog photographer to take pictures of my English Bulldog, George, that could live on forever and I could not be happier with how the pictures came out and how enjoyable the experience was from start to finish! Sonya is a gem! She is so professional and kind. She was extremely responsive and let me know what to expect every step of the way. The pictures came out better than I could have ever imagined. When deciding which photos to print , what size and on what material, she had lots of examples so I could see all of my options very clearly. The quality is second to none. I recommend Good Doggy Photography to anyone who loves their dog as much as I do 🙂 You will not regret it!

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.

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.

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.

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. Especially my dog Charlie, who recently passed. Her photographs speak in volumes of how talented she is; 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.

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.
