about sessions

included with private sessions

That face, those eyes. The unconditional love. Your cat is your heart and soul.

My natural affinity for animals and easy going approach to sessions allows your cat's personality to shine! We'll spend approximately one hour getting a variety of photos, including both posed and fun candids. Because each cat is unique, so is each session! Whether your cat is shy or very playful, we'll go with the flow and have fun. One of my favorite things is getting to know the personality of each pet in order to get the best images.

I'm Tonya.

I specialize in pet portrait photography and have been serving the San Francisco area for over 15 years. My love of animals and photography merged when my soul-mate kitty, Valencia, was diagnosed with cancer and I wanted photos that captured how much he meant to me. It became my mission to do the same for others.

Because pets are family.

Whether I'm shooting in a studio, park, beach or your home I like to keep my portrait photography style relaxed and comfortable because what I like to capture is something beyond just a pretty picture. I want images that feel connected and natural. While I do pose subjects in scenic settings (or the studio), I gravitate towards the moments in between poses. I want my subjects to forget about the camera.

After the session, you are invited to come to the office for an image presentation and product viewing meeting.  We'll review sample products so you are confident in your order.
