Purebred Pet Portraits

Oscar : Shichon (Shih tzu/Bijon Frise)

You’re passionate about your pet. Mark Turner is passionate about photography. When you’re ready for a special portrait of your loving animal companion then call on Purebred Pet Portraits to create memorable portraits of your dog or cat at your home, in our studio, or at your pet’s favorite place to play. We guarantee you'll like what we do.

Whether your beloved pet is a shelter rescue or a pampered Best of Show, she deserves to be professionally photographed by Purebred Pet Portraits. She'll love the attention and you'll love her portrait when it's hanging prominently in your home or office. Oscar, in the portrait here, is a Shichon (Shih tzu/Bijon Frise) and he came into our studio for his portrait.

With a Purebred Pet Portrait you always get the same high level of customer service — from planning your pet portrait, to your pet's photo session, to viewing and purchasing your favorite poses, and delivery of your dog or cat's portraits to your home. Your furry friend's finished portrait will be worthy of a prominent place on the walls of your home or office.

Photography Experience Makes a Difference

Mark Turner brings over 15 years of proficiency and professional photographic training to your pet photography experience. Connecting with your four-legged friend, working with flattering light, creating artful compositions, and exploring your pet’s expressions are all part of what makes a Purebred Pet Portrait special. We guarantee you’ll be delighted.

Pet portraits can be formal, created in our Fairhaven studio. Or we can come to your home or other location in Bellingham, Ferndale, Lynden, Birch Bay, Blaine, Semiahmoo, Lake Whatcom, or any other location in Whatcom County or northwest Washington state and create a portrait that includes your dog or cat’s familiar environment. We're specialists in location photography and love to create portraits that tell the special story of your pet at home. Mark will even give you pet portrait tips while he's photographing your best friend. Pet photography goes hand-in-hand with family portraits because we know your dog or cat is a much-loved member of your family. Perhaps you'd like your family to be part of your pet's portrait to show the love you share.

Pressing the shutter is just a small step in the process. Mark always starts every portrait with a free personal consultation. Call 360-671-6851 or fill out our contact form to have Mark call you and begin the conversation. We do much more than just create cute dog, puppy, or kitten photos. As your pet photographer we capture fleeting memories.
