BOTH OF OUR DOGS LOVE HER!

Sonya is an amazing photographer and produces the most magnificent memories for you. She is so patient and kind and works so well with the pups. Both our dogs love her. Her eye for details is mind blowing. She took time to ensure our pictures are as perfect as they can be and never rushed us into making a decision/ choice. She supplied plenty of props and all we had to do was show up ready to take pictures and the rest was taken care of by her. She also has numerous options in terms of picture frames, photo books etc. which make this photoshoot a one stop experience. We will surely be back for more sessions with our two precious fur babies.

I’M SO HAPPY TO HAVE THESE WONDERFUL PICTURES.

Sonya is one of the kindest souls that I have had the pleasure to meet. I had reached out to her when my best girl Gidget was given a not so great prognosis. I wanted to have pictures taken of Gidget before she became too ill to travel, and with my searching came upon the Good Doggy Photography website. From our initial conversation Sonya was wonderful. Even though it was the holiday season Sonya quickly adapted her schedule to find time to spend with us and for that I am forever grateful. Sonya was extremely patient with Gidget and showered her with so much love. Gidget and I both had one of our best days with her. Gidget’s portraits came out breathtaking, I could not have been happier with the final products. I’m so happy to have these wonderful pictures, and absolutely loved working with Sonya.

I will cherish them forever!

I had my photo session with Sonya back in late 2021 with my girl Georgia. I know this review is two years late (I’ve never been very good at being timely), but I really appreciated the the time and kindness that went into her work and our sessions together to select the best photos of Georgia. At the time I was worried my girl was getting old and I really wanted something that would capture her before it was too late. It was the perfect timing–the next year or so saw her growing thin and she passed a couple of weeks ago. I can’t explain how much I appreciate the beautiful work she did with my girl. I will cherish them forever. I will definitely come back for photos of my boy.

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!

WITH A SENIOR DOG, IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR ME TO CREATE A MEMORY THAT I’D BE ABLE TO HAVE FOREVER…

I love my photos!! Sonya was amazing in capturing my dog’s personality and spirit. With a senior dog, it was important for me to create a memory that I’d be able to have forever and that is exactly what Sonya delivered. She took the time to understand the types of photos I wanted to take and what was really important to me. She was a pleasure to work with and every aspect of the experience was a good one – from the pre-shoot, shoot, post shoot. Worth every penny!

Her images blew me away. They are stunning and lucky me, she had 1 appointment available before the holidays.

Sonya puts so much thought into the session even before she met us. She asked a lot of questions to prepare ahead of time. When we arrived for our session, she was so warm and kind and made me feel so comfortable and confident that we were exactly in the right place. As the session continued, she proved me right. The images of my beautiful boy are incredible. She captured his sweetness, his humor, laughter and happiness. It was exactly what I was looking for. Narrowing down the selection of her amazing photos seemed daunting, but Sonya made the process so easy. She helped me to see the images through an artist eye. To say I am thrilled with her work is quite an understatement! I highly recommend Sonya to anyone and everyone that wants to capture the most stunning images of their beloved fur baby! Just do it. You will never regret it! Most sincerely, Alice Steffens

Good Doggy Photography is a wonderful place for capturing the perfect moments with your beloved dog. The current portfolio of work is incredibly impressive with some photos being recognized internationally by The Kennel Club! The photographer, Sonya, is especially attentive to detail and ensures that all desired photographs are achieved. She cares deeply about the dogs that she works with and pays special attention to their well-being. The entire process is well managed with clear communication and set expectations for all objectives and deliverables. All of the photos are absolutely amazing! Taking the photos was the most rewarding part during which we all had an absolute blast posing and coordinating with our dog. I would recommend them to anyone looking to take professional photos with their dog in a studio setting!

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!

Working with Sonya from initial session setup to art work pickup was a breeze.

After much searching for dog photographers in the Monmouth County area, I was so happy to find Sonya’s website and portfolio. Working with Sonya from initial session setup to art work pickup was a breeze. Our session was for our two dogs of different sizes and temperament and Sonya was patient and thoughtful throughout. Sonya has a keen attention to detail and her passion for dog photography was evident at all times. Thank you so much for a great experience!
