Each of these Albuquerque pet photographers has the talent required to coax ideal poses out of your fur babies. Many also prefer using documentary styles involving you and your pet exploring the environment as naturally as possible. So why not take a look through the creativity on display today?
Jesse Freidin prefers working on projects he’s passionate about, including LGTBQ issues and pets alongside their owners!

While families and weddings are the main focus of Blue Rose Photography, there are times when people want the four-legged members of the family to be a part of the shoot. It’s these moments when the full family has gathered that delight us viewers, like when dogs play with their two-legged family outdoors. And whether it’s dogs or married couples, the contrast-rich, desaturated wedding profile Blue Rose uses makes for instantly impactful and timeless artistry!

Amber is a dog momma, Albuquerque pet photographer, and continual explorer of the natural wonders of the Land of Enchantment. Her preference for a classic portraiture style in her pet images normally used for human subjects immediately catches our attention. Amber skillfully includes colorful yet non-distracting flowers, mountains, and other backgrounds for that timeless outdoor portrait approach. What’s more, she’s talented at holding the wandering attention of dogs to create the shot, which takes dog-whisperer levels of skill to sustain! Amber’s style includes a very natural color grade, with colors that nicely pop under the vibrant New Mexican sunshine and simple compositions that place all of the emphasis on your dog.

Her way of teasing out quirky expressions or formal poses that best fits a particular dog’s persona is even more masterful!
Family portrait sessions are the specialty of Anna Cummings. This, of course, means you, your spouse, your kids, and your dog!
