Ray Johnston Photography understands how our beloved Pets enrich our lives and are valued members of the family.  Just as a family portrait, a timeless family heirloom hangs proudly in our home which brings a smile to our face every time we look at it, a Classic Pet portrait, showing character, color and breed also deserves a special place in the home.

There are pet snapshots and there are Pet Portraits.  It’s all about taking that extra step and moving beyond cute snapshots and into Museum Quality Portraits.  Patience and a love of animals are crucial to capture a special pet portrait.  We use hand painted backgrounds and high powered strobe lights to create crisp, clear, stunning photographs of your pet.  Furthermore, our pet friendly trained staff can make your beloved pet comfortable during the portrait session.

First time to the studio with your pet?  Sign up for a custom pet portrait before January 30, 2015 and receive a 20% discount off your creation.
