Custom Dog Memorial Art

Cutsom-Dog-Memorial-Art-Etching-with-Ashes

As more and more pet parents view their animal as a family member, not just a pet, they go to great lengths to seek out special products and meaningful ways to remember them. As shared in a recent post, I discovered a way to create custom dog memorial art in trying to commemorate my own loved dog, Jack, that passed over a year ago. I developed a solution for taking all the memory keepsakes I had of him and creatively putting them into ONE classy piece as an honorable remembrance of his life. Just like me, Mumford's mom was trying to do the same: "Thank you so much for this priceless gift...

Photoshoot for 3 dogs in SoCal

"Little Bit" (in the middle) is the senior and mama of the crew. Romeo (L) and Phoebe (R) are siblings. What does everyone want out of their photoshoot? A nice photo where ALL eyes are open with happy faces looking at the camera TOGETHER.  Dogs will be dogs and Phoebe (with the dark pink bow) was moving around (as dogs do!).  We can usually make portrait magic happen with enough patience, squeaky toys, and treats...

Custom Pet Art Featured in HGTV article

Custom Pet Art Featured in HGTV article

I'm thrilled to have our custom pet art etchings included in HGTV.com's article "10 Ways to Celebrate Your Pet with Art" - page 7! Over the past 2.5 years I have been helping pet parents get that favorite snapshot (even cell phone shot) out of the digital world and pressed into a tangible handmade work of art. Each custom pet art etching is handcrafted with sunshine, metal, ink and Italian fine art paper on my Grammy's printing press. I found it interesting that the etching image she chose from files sent happens to be my own Greyboy, my kitty Jake and business namesake, whose cremain ash...

Custom Dog Portrait Keepsake

dog-etching-chihuahua-mix-standing-on-stepping-stones-looking-up

Yep, I'm a crazy dog lady. That's who I am. When my dog passed, it was so very difficult, as I'm sure you well know from the passing of your own pets. They weasel their way into your heart and become so intertwined with you. With this guy, my Jack, his whole story made it even more burdensome when I had to say goodbye. (You'll see why if you read this post: 5 Helps for Saying Goodbye...) I really wanted something special to remember him by; a custom dog portrait keepsake. So, after his passing, with the help of Lap of Love's Dr. Mary and also Deanna from Paws n Claws Aquamation, I had...

This usually happens towards the end of a pet photography session when everyone has relaxed a little and the dogs are used to the camera. This yard was a great backdrop for a photoshoot, so we found a few choice spots and photographed there. Many treats were...
