Hi!  I’m Jennifer, or Auntie Jen to any pup I meet 🙂

A trained wine sommelier turned professional pet photographer, I’m also chief butler to our dogs and cats (as well as the occasional foster). I love am obsessed with  animals, travel, photography, wine, Disney, and gardening. Any combination of at least 2 and I’m in!

Firefly Pet Photography was started in 2018, from my work with animal rescue.  I’ve fostered over 100 cats and dogs and donate as much as I can to help animals.  This has given me the opportunity to learn about animal behavior, which is important for pet photography because I want to make sure your pet is comfortable and relaxed, even if they are shy or “quirky”.

And I also understand how important it is to have images WITH our pets, as well as images of our pets in a place where we can enjoy them every day (not locked in cell phone jail).

I’ve taken my photography and animal behavior expertise to create a pet photography experience, allowing you to enjoy the time with your pet in a beautiful location, selected just for you.  And of course I’ll sprinkle in some extra pixie dust along the way.  My only “rule” at a photoshoot is that your pet can do no wrong.  I expect them to be themselves, and that’s what I’ll capture for you.  You’ll love the results, with my money-back guarantee.

Give your dog a smooch for me – Jen
