Rave Reviews About Our Programs


“I went into Stephanie’s program hoping to gain a couple of basic tips to make photographing pets simpler, I left with pages of notes that completely changed my process and gave me a whole new outlook on pet portraiture. Her passion for photographing pets was not only evident but also infectious.”

– PW Photography | Florida

“Stephanie knows pet portraiture! I’ve photographed pets with their families but wasn’t really sure how to create a product line specific to just pets. Stephanie’s program revealed tips and secrets that I would have never even thought of to get the shots that sell. She also introduced creative portfolio and business building ideas that are free or inexpensive.”

-Vanessa’s Photography | Maryland

“I went to Stephanie’s Pet Portraiture workshop thinking I’d get a little overview on how she’s developed such a robust niche portrait business. What I got instead was a workshop that was filled with useful information that I could really apply. This isn’t fluff and she didn’t hold back! This was wonderful info on practical matters of dealing with pet clients as well as helpful sales and marketing ideas. Seeing her actually working with a dog was wonderful! She was fine tuning things that never even occurred to me before! I feel like it was definitely time well spent!”
