San Francisco pet photography session of MissMonkeyPants

Karl the Fog posed a few weather challenges, but I was determined to see sunshine, and after a little bit of patience, I did! Fergie, AKA MissMonkeyPants’ session went off without a weather-hitch. Below are a few of my favorites from our pet photography session in San Francisco, at one very famous spot, one secret hidden little spot that will forever hold a very special place in my heart, and one not-so-secret spot that (I’m sure) holds a special place in many people’s hearts.

Decopaw Design gift certificates available in any denomination

New for 2014:

Super cute little tri-fold 5×5 gift certificates for custom modern Decopaw Design art, available in any denomination. Email me at to purchase!

Are you still looking for the perfect gift for that super special person in your life? Is your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife madly in love with their dog/cat? Or did you lose a beloved pet too early to get professional photos made of them?

Custom-designed Decopaw art makes the perfect gift for that very special pet lover in your life. I design each canvas piece to their own desires and specifications, referring to a fun questionnaire I have each pet owner complete. The gift cards are a little gift in and of themselves, arriving in an adorable silver envelope with custom liner.




I can use any pre-existing image to design art, even dark, blurry, small or even film prints. Here are a couple of before-and-after Decopaw examples:

Fergie Waggy Tail Cinemagraph- Pet Photography Cinemagraph

I’ve wanted to make one of these for the past couple of years, and today I finally did. When I have a chance to grab more video using a tripod I’ll do some more experimenting, but I think for a first try, it’s pretty cute!:-)

Shot with my Canon 5D Mark III and 24mm L lens at f/1.4.
