Bring Your Pet

Your family’s pet is always welcome as part of any of our portrait sessions. Or, choose to have a portrait made just of your furry kids, either in our studio or at your home.

When we photograph pets we pay special attention to helping them feel comfortable. We know it sometimes takes a little time for your pet to adjust to new surroundings and new people, so we don’t rush through any session that includes pets. Since you know your pet best, we count on you to work as part of our team to help you pet look their best. We sometimes use special lighting techniques to highlight their fur and make your beloved “fur baby” shine.

Bellingham portrait photographer Mark Turner captures the heart of your family’s life.
