How Long Have you been a Pet Photographer for?
I started my photography career in 2006 and by 2007 I was focusing on pet portraits, along with weddings, bands, family portraits, real estate, you name it. My husband and I relocated to the PNW for work and I started Fuzzy Butt Pet Photos in 2017 after my oldest and longest best friend, Bubbas, my husky who is pictured right here to the right, back when I had dark hair, passed away. It was devastating for me and I so cherished the photos I did capture of him. I wanted to rededicate myself to a subject which really resonates with me, pets. As you can see from most of my selfies here, I'm constantly in the presence of my dogs, and as a kid I had many pets including cats, horses, chickens, dogs, birds, mice....yup, mice! <3 Its my passion to capture our most beautiful best friends in a way that brings out their personality and captures their memory.
Who is Jess?
Hello! Excuse me while I get some kisses from my little Marley Bear. Below you can see Django using me as his personal mattress. I am Jess and these are my Boopkins. What can I say? As an enigma trapped within a dream, I find myself recently in love London Fog Jasmine Green Tea Lattes with Rose Flavoring and I pretty much think animals are just about the greatest thing to ever exist in this world, especially the ones we are lucky enough to call "family"
What is your style?
I work a lot with pets, so I guess you could say I'm pretty laid back and know how to go with the flow. I will have a outline for us to work with, but each pet will define the pace, energy and rhythm of our session. Whatever they bring to the table, I will be right there to help get the best possible photograph of them, spark their interest and frame each moment in a meaningful way. I will help guide you and your pets through an easy, fun and results proven experience that will provide you with an array of incredible and memorable photographs marking a beautiful afternoon with your pet. This session is truly going to celebrate your best friend.
Do you Photograph anything else?
Right now about 75% of my photography business is focused on Pet Photography, while the other 25% focuses on weddings, headshots and family portraits. Pets are definitely my main passion, which is exactly how I like it! I volunteer weekly for the Oregon Dog Rescue and help them take photos of their available pups. When I'm not photographing, I'm painting Watercolor Pet Portraits for clients thru my Etsy Store. I absolutely love all the work that I am able to do and take great care to provide all of my clients with the best possible experience. There is nothing more precious than this very moment, so thank you so much for taking your time to learn more about me and I cannot wait to help you create some beautiful memories with your best friend!
