paw prints | pet portraits by charlene is the result of a girl’s obsession with dogs and her camera.

Hey! I’m Charlene and I’m so grateful that you’re taking time out of your busy life to check out my work and my insane love for all things dog.  Yes, I also work with cats (and have my own sweet little kitty at home) but my passion is tail-wagging, ever-loving, slobbering dogs! When I’m not working on creating gorgeous art for my clients or hanging out with my own pup and my two-legged other half , you can find me overdosing on chai tea lattes or curled up with my Kindle.

I live and work by the saying below, and I absolutely thrive on working with people who feel the same way about their furry best friends. You can read more about my Great Dane, Emmet and the other fur-kids in my life here. Click ‘contact’ above to drop me a line and let’s talk about your ideas for a custom photography session for your best friend!
