Prince, the 16.5 year old Russian Blue cat received a photo session at his home in Costa Mesa. "He literally was on my doorstep one day when I got home from work. He was on my welcome mat and he is one of the best gifts I've ever received," shared Prince's mom. I moved very quiet and slow so he knew he could trust me while I photographed him in his comfortable places. Prince has been on renal therapy for about 18 months.

OC Pet Photographer + Pet Etching Art

Welcome to Greyboy Pet Prints! Hi, I’m Mandi, OC pet photographer and etching artist. You must be a pet lover just like me! (This means you’d like to remember forever your nose to nose chats with your furry companion, the tickle of their whiskers on your face, the loving eyes that never want to leave your gaze, and that happy tail that shows their unconditional love for you!)

In a world where life moves faster than we’d like, I create artful prints to remember our animal companion’s loving face and that soul connection shared!

Greyboy Pet Prints offers award-winning Orange County pet photography: pet photo sessions at your home where your pet is most comfortable. I create artful memories in print for pet moms and dads like you (serving southern CA cities like Mission Viejo, Irvine, Orange, and even Chino Hills, Claremont and Inland Empire areas). See Greyboy services and portfolio HERE. (Yes, I love to photograph kitties and other furry creatures too!)

Orange County Pet Photographer

If you have a picture you ALREADY love, perhaps a snapshot on your phone or a digital file sitting on your desktop, send it on over and I’ll transform that photo into a fine art etching using an old-fashioned printing press, metal plate, sunshine and ink. 100% handmade in SoCal! They make great gifts for pet lovers! See how a pet etching is made HERE.

Vizsla Dog Photographed in Costa Mesa For a Gift

Here’s “Archie,” the playful Vizsla dog photographed in Costa Mesa for the very thoughtful calendar gift his dad wanted to delight Archie’s mom with! Now she can see his cute face every month when she turns the page onto a new monthly theme. Archie’s dad contacted me and told me it was a surprise so we had to squeeze in the photo session on a day mom wasn’t home. Stylist Cindy Courson from Cindy Courson Design did a terrific job styling the shoot! Here are some of my favorite images that made the cut for Archie’s calendar. (See the actual calendar at the end of this post.)


An empty champagne bottle with martini glass was just the extra kick we needed for this New Year’s shot set up in Archie’s living room. Below is the Valentine theme for this heartthrob!


Rose petals in a heart shape set up on their outdoor patio was terrific. Awwwww lover boy!

The image below of Archie greeting us at the gate was not planned. A service person drove up to their home and Archie was curious. So many times at a pet photoshoot, I’ve learned to have my camera out and ready for anything like this. What a greeter! Good job boy!
