We moved to San Francisco! Bay Area pet photography sessions now available

We are no stranger to big announcements around here, like the time I announced I was teaching the very first intensive pet photography workshops in 2008, the time we got the new studio in Seattle, or more recently, when I announced our big 7-month U.S. road trip in 2014. But this is perhaps the biggest announcement yet!

Fergie and I moved Cowbelly from Seattle to San Francisco! We couldn’t be happier with this change, and are already enjoying working with new and past clients here in the bay area. Our new home is a few doors away from Golden Gate Park, which MissMonkeyPants now thinks is her new backyard, and I am excited at the prospect of shooting in all of the incredible iconic locations my new city has to offer.

I’m thrilled to be a San Francisco resident, and look super forward to working with new people and dogs here!

If you or anyone you know are in the San Francisco Bay Area and have dogs or cats (or both!) you would like some awesome professional photos of, please drop me a line at info@cowbelly.com or call or text me at 415-609-9518 to book a shoot.

I am also looking for new dog models for my dog model database, which I now have open to Northern California residents. If you know anyone who has a dog they’d like to sign up for the database, please send the following page to them.

This photo below was taken from my living room window the other night. I’m encouraged to know that I don’t have to miss the spectacular sunsets I was used to in Seattle.

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 info@cowbelly.com 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:

LizzieDobbins - Pretty! This has been an incredibly wonderful post. Thank you for providing this information.

DanielLovelace - Article writing is also a fun, if you be familiar with then you can write otherwise it is complex to write.

LouisaZOMjauq - I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with your website. It appears like some of the written text within your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This might be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Thank you

SibylPilgrim - Remember, the first place to start is to ask your Wedding Dance Band to help you with a list of their wedding dance songs. Its the internet now which has sort of upgraded the value of the music that is created by the indie bands by helping them thoroughly in the distribution scenario. Luna Strings will be giving their first recital this Sunday, May 15 at 6:00 PM at Congregation Shearith Israel in Morningside, and we look forward to seeing what they’ll come up with’maybe a little Journey mixed in with the Janacek.

AprilGowing - Good info. Lucky me I ran across your website by chance (stumbleupon). I’ve saved as a favorite for later!

HMIMarshal - At this time it appears like Movable Type is the top blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

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!:-)
