The Photographer

Untitled photo

My name is Chantal, I’m your photographer, studio owner, and dog enthusiast. Thanks to my husband who bought me my first camera back in 2015, I fell head over heals in love with photography and the creativity it brings. After lots of encouragement from friends and family, I made the leap and opened up my own pet studio in 2020 and couldn’t be happier. Working with pets all day and creating one of a kind pieces of art, what could be better than that!

My sidekick is Gus the Great Dane. He is my personal model extraordinaire and tester of all new background colours and ideas. It’s so cute, he’ll start pouting if I’m going into my studio without him.

THIS EXPERIENCE WAS EPIC!!! Start to finish I was completely impressed and blown away by Chantal’s talent and professionalism. From the beginning she made me feel comfortable and safe. Since I found her business through Google and she was a stranger to me I didn’t really know what to expect. But soon as we got in touch she was unbelievably kind. She worked with me to nail down a shot list, created a package that fit my photo needs and was flexible finding a date and time. When we arrived the studio space was perfectly set up for a dog. She immediately allowed my Lab Tucker to roam off leash and check everything out bringing down his anxiety level. She used a mix of peanut butter, liver treats and a squeaky toy to really get the best shots of him. Once he was relaxed in front of the camera we were even able to use some of the provided props! I really appreciated that she worked at Tuckers speed, never forcing him into a position and allowing him to have breaks. She prioritized Tucker and making sure he was enjoying himself the entire time! Chantal went the extra mile and really paid attention to those little details. From making sure the outside lights were on when we arrived to allowing us to see the photos as they were taken to highlight our favourites. We already have our second session booked with her for our new puppy Daisy! I highly recommend that if you want AMAZING photos of your dog to go to an expert like Chantal!

We were searching for fun, cute pictures of our furry family members and came across Chantal on social media. Our photography session was fantastic! From the beginning, Chantal was professional and helpful in providing information, pricing, and guidance on what to expect. Her studio was clean and inviting - all COVID protocols were followed. Once in studio with our 2 dogs, we had one very outgoing and one very nervous subject - but this did not throw Chantal off in the slightest! She was patient, kind and was able to help our nervous guy feel very safe. We cannot say enough wonderful things about Chantal, other than - she deserves your business and will not disappoint!

Our friend referred us to Chantal after we saw how amazing the photos of their dog was. I wasn’t sure what to expect when we got to her in-home studio but needless to say any hesitation I may have had prior to going over completely diminished as soon as I saw how incredible she was with the dog. Chantal followed all COVID protocols while still making it a welcoming experience. She was professional, kind, and incredible with our dog Bailey. She gets as interactive as she possibly can when taking photos while still ensuring the dog has an absolute blast. The photos were edited quickly and turned out better than I imagined. It was worth every dollar and we hope her business continues to grow and succeed in the new year!! Highly recommend and would go back without any hesitation whatsoever. Thank you again for the great photos of Bailey.

We couldn't be happier with the photography and service Chantal provided. Right when you walk in, she makes you and your pet feel welcome. Both of our dog's needs were met (we have a senior dog that required some help and a puppy who needed constant attention). She has truly captured our dogs personalities in each and every photo. We highly recommend her!! We have been back 3 more times since our first session. Give her a try, you won't be disappointed.

Chantal is amazing. We were able to book an apt with her within a week of contacting her. She is very responsive and accommodating, we booked our 8 month old kitten for his first ever photo shoot. The studio is set up so as she is taking the shots you can enjoy them on screen. Her passion for pets is evident in her patience and care. She made sure that the area was safe and that there was no danger for our little one with the photography equipment. Chantal went above and beyond with the best props and treats and toys to lure our sweet kitten. We are blown away and we cannot wait for the photos to become available. It is going to be tough to choose our favourites from the over 350 shots. We will look forward to bringing our kitten for holiday shots as he will be an adult by then and our pups will also enjoy their own session as well. We highly recommend Chantal.

Chantal is absolutely fabulous. I took my girl, Anne Shirley, to Chantal for a session after seeing her amazing pet photography on this page, but her talent goes beyond the camera. She has a wonderful way with dogs and is so patient! Chantal captured everything I love about Anne Shirley from how cute she is to her wonderful personality - her sense of humour, playfulness, sensitivity and strength were captured in a way I never have imagined! Thank you, Chantal, you are A++ Highly recommend!!
