Welcome to Sheepish Grin Animal Photography

Thank you for considering Sheepish Grin for your animal's photo session. Sheepish Grin Animal Photography specializes in creating images of pets in garden and outdoor settings. Sheepish Grin Animal Photography is for animal lovers with a strong connection to nature, who want colorful photographs of their pet in a natural environment.

The process is simple. You can either email, call or fill out the questionnaire here. Then, we choose a suitable time and date, as well as the location where you would like the session to take place. I can also make some suggestions if need be. Additional information and a copy of the contract will be sent for you to look over and fill out. I'll call the day before to confirm the appointment.

Natural, organic treats and a toy for your pup are brought to the session. The session typically lasts about one hour to an hour and a half. We set up an in-home ordering session, usually within a week after the photo session, where we sit down to help you select photos and products. 

Your order will arrive no later than two weeks. Get in touch with Sheepish Grin Animal Photography to book your session!

I have a tail I would like to share. Oh no wait, not my tail, I mean my tale.  However, first a few things about me. I’m 14 years old, which is quite old for a fella like me. I’ve had a pretty good life, filled with lots of walks, ball playing and my very favorite thing of all – eating. Occasionally I have to take a bath, but on the whole, I can’t complain. Oh yes, and I’m a dalmatian.

Early in my life, my mom was working as a graphic designer. She was away a lot of the time and I didn’t get as many walks when it was winter time. My mom began photographing at Winslow Animal Farm Sanctuary, where animals, who were not treated very well or lost their home, came to live. She always came home smelling pretty interesting, like horses, goats and sheep. She still goes to the farm and photographs there all the time.

Then, one day my mom said, “Well pup. I guess we now get to spend a lot more time together.” She said because of something called a “recession,” she did not have to go away every day. She told me she was going to fulfill a dream she had since art college of becoming a pet photographer. I knew what this was about. This is where she held up a contraption to her face and pointed it at me. I’m probably pretty much a professional at posing. She explained, “After all, I’m lucky. I have many photographs of you ever since you were a young pup. Why not share that with other people who may want photos of their pets to keep forever as special memories.” It sounded like a great idea to me.

My mom started her pet photography business, Sheepish Grin Pet Photography, in 2009. She took photographs of dogs, horses and cats all over Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Best of all, now working from home, she was able to take me for a walk every day, no matter what time of the year it was. I love this! 

We are happy being outside and like doing nature walks. My mom also loves to garden and I help by watering her plants. She gets very excited when I do this, but somehow I don’t think in a good way.

You should give us a ring to schedule a photo session for your furry friend. Best of all, your pup will have their own tail, err tale, to tell about their own fun photo adventure.

Epilogue: Sparky passed May 2017. The story continues with the adoption of three shelter animals, a little Yorkie, Winston, and two long haired cats, Spencer and Sophie. ~Annmarie
