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!! 🐾🐶

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

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!

THE RESULTS DEMONSTRATE THE HIGH QUALITY OF WORK PUT INTO THE OVERALL SHOOT AND EACH INDIVIDUAL PHOTO.

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!

BOTH TIMES HAVE BEEN PHENOMINAL.

Sonya has photographed both my Chow and beagle mix. And both times has been phenomenal. Both of mutts have behavioral issues and her patience with both my girls was remarkable, especially with Venus. She is always a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend..

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.
