Welcome to Donna Kelliher Photography where my philosophy is "All Dog Sports, All the Time!" As you can probably tell by that motto, I specialize in all things canine. Whether it's action shots of you and your four-footed best friend at play in your favorite sport, or fine art portraits you're looking for, you've come to the right place. To create photographs which you will treasure forever, I combine my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography with 10 years as a Certified Pet Dog Trainer. That means that no matter how rowdy your canine, I will capture him or her at their best. And since I also actively compete in multiple dog sports myself, I know what it takes to capture those special moments of you and your dog. Please enjoy browsing the online galleries of my work to get an idea what I can offer you and feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or to schedule an event or portrait session. Thank you for visiting and I hope to be able to serve you in the future!
Pet portraits are a speciality and a special love of mine. Whether your canine is a champion in the show ring or a champion couch potato a professional portrait will capture his or her special charms. People often think that their dog is too rowdy, too fearful, too "whatever" for a formal portrait session, but my many years training dogs of all dispositions means that whatever your dog's challenges, I know how to set your dog at ease and create a portrait you'll treasure forever. All portrait sessions are individually tailored to your specific goals -- whether it's candid, casual portraits of your dog at his silly, goofy best, or elegant head shots, my goal is to capture your dog's unique spirit. While the great outdoors is my favorite venue for portraits, I can also photograph your dog at your home, or in a studio setting. Portrait sessions usually last 1 - 2 hours and will include numerous "poses". Portrait sessions cost $150 and include online proofs and either (1) 8X10 or (2) 5X7 prints. I offer a great many additional print sizes, as well as a wide range of products (see below), for purchase individually to ensure you get exactly what you need. Group sessions are also available for a reduced rate. So gather up a group of dog loving friends, your training group or club, and contact me for more information.
Whatever sport your dog excels in, whether it's racing through an agility course, chasing a lure, rounding up the sheep, or bringing back the birds, I capture those moments forever. I've photographed National Breed Specialties, the CPE Agility National Championships, and performance events of EVERY type. Check out my schedule, posted on my blog, for upcoming events that I'll be photographing, and if your club is hosting an upcoming event which you'd like me to photograph, please contact me.
