We believe in art and beauty and the ridiculous, profound love we humans have for our companion animals. We want to create for you a grand experience between you and your goofy dog or a fun few hours with your majestic cat that results in preserving a few fragments of time that you can hang on your wall or display with pride on your coffee table... art created with you and for you.
We capture happiness through photography. We like nothing better than delighting you with a breathtaking portrait of your most beloved little creature. Our eye searches for love, silliness, unguarded moments, bits of slobber, smiles, gentle eyes, magnificence, personality, dignity, and the things that make us laugh.
They are our beautiful beasts and we want to hold on to them forever. We know.

Introducing Dog Noir
It’s dusk in Los Angeles. Palm trees black against a cobalt sky. Horizon glowing like a cigarette’s lit end. You and your dog as restless as the Santa Anas. You want to hit L.A.’s gritty streets to sniff up something new.
Here it is . . . Dog Noir – an uncommon photo shoot.
We know what you're thinking. "My dog will never sit still for a portrait." Au contraire, mon ami! Whether your dog is an extrovert, a little timid or an unruly mess, we know how to work with them to get a beautiful portrait you'll be proud to hang on your wall. Put your worries aside. Pet photography is our specialty, not a sideline. But you know what else? You will never regret having a great photograph of your dog. Not ever.
We love our phone, we do, and we use it all the time to take the cutest photos of our pets. But don't you want to be with your dog or cat, too? This is beyond the selfie. Be a part of their picture. The bonus? You can show these off on your phone, too, with our custom mobile app. Done and done.
We know cats, we have two of them! Yes, cats are more unpredictable than dogs but... if they aren't the type that always hides under the bed (believe me, we had one), we can photograph them. Yes, we have secrets. No, we won't divulge them. OK, we have a cat whisperer on staff.
This is Hollywood, superstars, and animals can play make-believe, too. Unique to Modern Pet Portraiture is the opportunity to have your pets be the lead character in their own story with our Storytelling Sessions. Together we come up with an idea, simple or maybe a little elaborate, and create an unforgettable image. Take a look at our work and imagine the world your dog or cat can inhabit! Now... ready for your close-up?
But we have a pretty good idea. We imagine it's the way we feel about ours.
And if it is, I know you'll understand when I say I want you to have breathtaking images of your dog or cat when they are in full bloom. The prime of their life, when they are beautiful in your eyes, as you know them now, when your relationship together has become the thing it will be. And even if they are blind or can't walk or have a twist that others may fear but makes you ache with love, I don't want you to wait. I don't want you to be sad. I don't want you to think, "I should have done this earlier." Have no regrets, my friend. It's a little money now. But what does that buy? It will buy you beauty. Happiness. Memories of a really fun day. Relief. Custom art meant for your eyes of your beloved. And something that will stir your soul of someone you will never forget. That is what I want for you. No regrets.
If that's what you're looking for, maybe I'm for you. Let's talk. 818.481.5214. Or just hit that Contact button on the lower right corner and send me an email.
