They’re not “just pets” to you.
Do you refer to your pets as your “children” “furbabies”, or “furkids”? Perhaps you think of them more as your roommates or best friends? Do you joke that you like them better than people—only you’re not really joking? Would you rather spend time with your furry friends than go to a party? Welcome, we’re going to get along just fine!
You want the best for your pets. You buy them the best food, or perhaps you even make it yourself. (It’s hard to trust the big pet food companies these days, with all the recalls). You don’t go to the dog groomer, Fluffy has a “pet stylist”. You spend more on the in home pet sitting than the actual vacation, but it’s worth it to know your babies aren’t miserable in a cage. You have thousands of pet pics on your phone, but if the unthinkable happened and Fluffy were gone tomorrow, would they be “good enough”?
My specialty is celebrating the special bond people share with their pets and creating custom artwork they will cherish forever. Portrait sessions are fun and laid back, tailored to your pet’s personality, training, and comfort.
Here’s how to get in touch with Tracy to start planning your pet’s amazing portraits today.

If you think of your pets as family, then you’re in the right place.
Studies show that looking at your pets can elevate your mood and lower your blood pressure. I truly believe that the best way to decorate your living spaces is with portraits of the furry faces that make you smile.
We’ll work together to create heirloom quality artwork that perfectly captures your pets' personalities and fits the aesthetic of your home.
From classic, painterly style canvases to modern acrylic blocks and from formal studio portraits to fun outdoor action shoots, together we will find the perfect way to celebrate your pet. Either way, I bring my portable studio to you and work where you and your pet are most at ease, in locations that have the most meaning for you.
Each of my sessions begins with a consultation to help me better understand what type of artwork your family will treasure.
Ideally, your consultation will also include a chance for me to meet your pet, so that we can get to know each other without the scary big black box in the way. This will be an opportunity for you and I to discuss what kind of session and location(s) would be most suitable for your pet, and what type of artwork you envision for your home.
Professional Retouching isn’t just for super models!
Advanced retouching is just one of the many services included with your custom pet portrait session with Tracy Munson Pet Photography. Dog has poor recall and can't be off leash? Persian cat has tear staining? Geriatric pet has lumps and bumps, surgical scars or shaved areas? Not a problem. Any artwork that you choose to purchase will be fully retouched, to your preferences.

The session and the photo gallery far exceeded our expectations. We have beautiful photos of our beloved Greyhound that we can enjoy for years to come."

Tracy has photographed my family for quite a few years now. I have a 5 year old and a 3 year old and 3 dogs (not easy to wrangle!). With her patience and experience working with dogs she is always is able to capture those amazing moments. I can't say enough wonderful things about Tracy's photography and the experience working with her. ❤❤❤

Here Are The Answers To Some Common Questions.
Do You photograph people, too?
My specialty is Pet Photography, however I have devoted my career to nurturing the bond between people and their pets. Your pet's session will be focused on capturing your pet's personality and the behaviours and expressions you love. That being said, I am always happy to include a few images of you or your family interacting with your pet(s). Just promise not to be offended if I whistle and make funny noises to get your attention!
Need a professional head shot that includes your furry assistant for your pet related business (dog walkers, groomers, veterinarians, etc)? Contact me for a custom quote. I can also provide photos of your pet related business for your website and marketing materials.
Can I just get all the digital files on a disk or usb stick?
My clients are looking for heirloom quality, tangible art pieces that will last for many years to come, and that is what I create for them. You don't need to worry about finding a printer, choosing from a sea of products you've never seen before, or figuring out how to order. I've already done all the legwork for you. All of my printed materials are of the highest quality available and come from the very best professional print labs. Your artwork will appear exactly as it appeared on my computer screen and will be guaranteed not to fade or discolour for many decades. I cannot guarantee the quality, colour management, or longevity of prints ordered from consumer labs.
But can I share my images on social media?
I make sharing the love easy. That's why I provide a web resolution file with every printed image you purchase. Invest in a custom designed, archival quality album or photo book and receive an app including all of your selected images. The app will display your images perfectly on your phone or tablet and can be shared to social media for friends and family to enjoy. You will have the best of both worlds: A digital copy to enjoy on your devices, and a hard copy that will outlast the current technology and become more priceless as the years go by.
I THINK MY PET HAS STAR QUALITY! DO YOU EVER NEED MODELS?
Sometimes I need a pet of a certain breed or skill set for a commercial photo shoot or personal project. Sign up to get occasional updates and make sure you don't miss Fluffy's big break!
My pet is ill-behaved, out of control, and doesn't listen. will you still be able to create amazing images for me?
Welcome to the club! My own pets won't be winning any obedience trials, either. I aim to work with your pet, not against them. If you have an energetic young dog who loves to run, then let's head outside and create some fun action images. Your chihuahua hates it outside and runs around trying to bite everyone? Mine, too! We'll stay indoors and take our time and when your pet is comfortable, I'll create some beautiful formal portraits. I promise that you will be amazed and delighted with your images. even if your pet is a wild child.
Do We Have To Come To Your Studio?
My lights, backdrops and gear are all completely portable. This allows me to photograph your pet in the comfort of their own home, yard, or nearby park that they are used to. Not only will your pet be more relaxed, but your images will show your pet in environments that are meaningful to you and will always remind you of the great times you and your furry friends had there together.
Families of new puppies and kittens who aren’t able to be fully immunized yet don’t have to worry about bringing them to a studio where they may come into contact with germs from a hundred pets that have been there before them.
What if I don’t like any of the photos?
I stand behind my work 100%, with a risk free guarantee. If you aren’t happy with the images we create, I will schedule a complimentary re-shoot, or refund your session fees. Any printed materials ordered through me will be reprinted and replaced if you are not completely thrilled with them. I even offer a lifetime guarantee against common issues like warping, sagging, and fading — that’s how much faith I have in my print lab.
