Hi. I'm Jennifer. I've wanted to photograph dogs for as long as I can remember.
It's true. My Grandfather started a Photo Biz back in the 50's and half my family worked for him. My dad took over the business and I spent many a childhood weekend at his studio. When my dad told me he wanted me to be in a brochure for his new idea to photograph pets, I was REALLY excited! I was so excited that I decided it was what I wanted to do when I grew up. Unfortunately, the idea never went past the brochure stage and I was left without a career at the ripe old age of 9. I went a lot of places and did a lot of things, but 25 years later, I came back to what I always loved. Fetch Portraits exists to capture your best friend so that you can keep them close to you, forever. It's the most important thing in the world to me.
Rescue is also incredibly important to me. I try to help the rescue effort in any way I can. To date, I have photographed over 3,000 adoptable animals to help them find a home. Better pictures can drastically increase an animal's chances of Foster or Adoption and when one dog gets a home, there's room for another dog to be saved.
My work with dog owners and rescues inspired me to build an App that helps you get great photos of your pet & share them on social media. It's called Pose A Pet™ and it's available for iPhone and Android! Just click HERE for store links. The most exciting part about this App is that if your subject needs a home, it creates an eye-catching flyer for you to share and help them find a home. You can read more about it here.
Whether you are in Chicago or one of the many Chicago Suburbs or even Northwest Indiana, we'll come to you and capture memories you'll cherish forever. Professional photos of your dog(s) is something you will never regret. I'm so glad you stopped by and I hope to work with you soon!
