Oscar and Sara Testimonials

Jess:  I feel blessed to have worked with Barbara over the years. Her photography and albums speak for themselves. Her work is simply exceptional. What may not be obvious as you browse her galleries is the compassion, kindness, patience and humor that makes her a pleasure to work with. From the moment she met my dogs, they had a bond. She intuitively knew how to bring out their personalities and capture their souls. When my boy, Ripely, was nearing the end she captured the most silly and handsome smile that now lights up our wall. Separately, she worked wonders and created a stunning silhouette for our Christmas card pictures as well as designed the back. Her creativity and experience produced a holiday card that prompted an abundance of compliments. Barbara consistently exceeds my expectations and deserves a 5+ star review!

We love working with you! icon smile Testimonials

Takota (click to see gallery)

Debi:   Barbara was fantastic and so friendly while taking photos of Takota. Being in an unfamiliar location, she made him feel comfortable by giving him treats, having squeaky play toys to keep his attention, and knew when to give him a break in between photo shots. She was so patient and calm throughout the entire session, and Takota showed his appreciation of her kindness by giving her gentle kisses when she was sitting down trying to take some of his photos. We enjoyed our time with her and the outcome of the photos are incredible. She truly captured the gentleness of Takota while allowing him to ham it up in front of the camera.

Sarah:   My husband and I wanted pictures of our 2 Boston Terriers and Barbara was referred to us as a “terrific Pet Photographer.” From the beginning of the process she exceeded our expectations. She gave us information to prepare for the shoot, and when she arrived she immediately connected with the dogs and was a friend within minutes.  She worked quickly and professionally capturing great shots of the dogs and solicited our thoughts on some of her ideas. It was a great day and we ended up with beautiful pictures of our pets. I would highly recommend Barbara and “Share the Joy.”  She is terrific and we ended up with exactly what we were hoping for.

Paul: The photography Barbara provided of our two Boston Terrier dogs was exceptional. We now have many photos that we will cherish for a lifetime.  Barbara is impressive in both her skills and patience to capture the best candid pictures of your beloved pets. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants amazing photos at remarkably affordable prices.
