Pet Photo Books

What brings more love, laughter and delight than our furry friend? Pets become our companions, our best friends and our family. They grow up with us, play with us, listen to us and give us unconditional love and affection. We love them, and they love us — or so we assume, and this special relationship deserves to be cherished. If you have a bunch of photos of your furry friends, why not create a photo book that will help capturing your pet in a way that frames that moment forever and share it with your family. Creating your very own pet photo book from their first days in their new home to how they look now is a real joy. It’s amazing to see how much growing they can do in a year. Plus, your animal-loving heart will be melting just looking of all this cuteness.

Little moments become tomorrow's precious memories

Why You Start Creating a Pet Book

1. Honor The Memory

Today's little moments become tomorrow's precious memories. Pets have shorter lives than human. The time we can spend with our beloved furry friend is shorter than we desire and these precious moments are meant to be cherished and honored even when they leave us to pet's heaven.

2. Keep track of their milestones

Those precious few months where your pet is small and squeezable are the most treasurable memories. Our furry friends grow up faster than you imagine and with each passing year every change and look is remarkable. That’s why it’s important to capture the special moments grow from newborn to old age along the way with a photo book, so you can freeze every moment forever.

3. Everyone's favorite family member

Our furry little friends are more than just pets; they are part of our family members that bring so much love and laughter to our household. The memories you make with your furry friends are some of the best you have. So it’s important for us to preserve the memory in time the two of you shared in a way that they deserve.

4. Physically archiving your images

All pet-lovers have certain things in common. We all have phone filled with photos of our adorable pet whether it’s their cute head tilts, or unintentionally strikes an adorable pose. However, storing photo in phone is never a great storage solution. Get those photos off your phone and into the world with a printed photo book that can be enjoyed at any time, and share it with your family and friends! This way you’ll never worry about losing precious memories again.

About Samantha

Samantha is an animal photographer since 2009. Based in California and she grew up in Kentucky. She always has had a passion for animals, and was automatically drawn to the veterinary field.

about samantha
I love to be able to convey the beauty of a bond between an animal and their person without using one word
Samantha, she is the fantastic example of animal photographer. Samantha started portrait photography in 2009 as a hobby and fell in love with this field.
I fell in love with how I was able to bring my creative side and love for animals together. About 6 years ago, I began to take it more seriously, and started photographing for horse farms in Kentucky. Which I loved. I branched out a bit more into companion animals a few years ago, and they are just as fun to photograph
I branched out a bit more into companion animals a few years ago, and they are just as fun to photograph. I really enjoy photographing senior animals. There is nothing that gives me such an honor than to be the photographer a person chooses to forever memorialize their friend of many years.
The stories they share during the session are all very special and touching. And for me being able to give them something that will forever commemorate their best friend is beyond words.
Samantha moved to California, she officially launched Steed and Hound Photography, and have not looked back!

Choose the best image by narrowing down the most stunning images to commemorate their “best friend” beyond words.

This is a very difficult process, not physically, but because there are so many great images. I want to share them all, but also do not want to put others in the same situation. I want it to be fun for them, so I will take on the task of narrowing down to the best images. These ways they are guaranteed a classic and stunning piece of wall art they can enjoy for decades

Photographing animal is different from photograph people. It overcomes a different challenge, language and connection.

The best printing is very important to your clients experience.

Printing as a medium is one of the most meaningful way that you can enjoy photography and represent you as a professional photographer. Samantha always considers the highest caliber printer for her client’s masterpiece.
For me, the biggest challenge is after the session, when the photo selection begins. During an average session, anywhere from 100-500 photos can be shot, and I will narrow it down to the 25-50 for the gallery.
I offer many different styles to display, this allows for my client to get exactly what they want for their space. I make sure to only work with the highest caliber printers, so I can guarantee they will be 100% satisfied with the quality.
