Mutt Love Photography
It has been a while since I have posted on one of my inspiring, female, creative clients in a while! The next one is someone who I am a client of as well!
Meet Teann Dhwarial of Mutt Love Photography. She is a professional photographer and someone I think is on the top of the artisan pet photography game in the province of Alberta. She is one of the pet photographers in the Edmonton area that I would recommend in a heartbeat. She is also who I have chosen to document my fur babies through photography; last year she photographed myself and Bear, and this summer we hope she can squeeze us in so my husband and I can get photos with one of our other dogs, Nickita. Check out her work at Mutt Love Photography.
I met Teann in 2012 when she was doing some photography work for a local animal rescue. We both shared a passion for photographing dogs, and made plans to attend a photography conference together in Calgary where we got to know each other. She was also a foster mom to a delightful hound named Maggie at the same time I was involved as a volunteer with the rescue. We also have something else in common; although we share the love of photography, we both care a great deal about helping others and work in healthcare. Teann is also a Registered Nurse (which is a profession I hold in very high regard). She is also a mother of an adorable little girl; I really do not know how she juggles it all!
Teann's work is not just for families and private clients. She has multiple commercial projects and her canvases and artwork can be viewed in many of the vet clinics in Edmonton as well as other businesses in the area. I have learned a great deal about photography from Teann, and it was great to have someone with similar interests and passions working towards common goals as myself at a similar time.
Even though I am professional photographer myself, I seek out other professionals to provide me with photographic services. Sure, I could produce the photos myself, but it is such a nice change to get a different style and take on photos. Plus then I get to be in them too. Teann is amazing at creating and capturing the connection between the client and their beloved pet. I know the images, memories, and products are going to be top notch and stand the test of time. They truly are priceless and worth the investment. Long after my fur babies have passed, I will still have the prints and their photo albums as a keepsake.
One of the most meaningful and unique things that Teann offers with her photo albums is custom paw printing. Teann provided us with a "print kit." We were able to provide her with Bear's paw print. From that, she was able to transfer it as a digital image to the back cover of the beautiful photo album. It was truly unique and special.
Teann's fur child, and assistant, is a fantastic golden doodle named Juno. She is so much better behaved than my dogs! Here she is looking super cool and ready for summer! It is so amazing to meet other photographers who want to work together and be COMMUNITY and not COMPETITORS. Edmonton (and the PPOC for that matter) is full of great, uplifting photographers, who are willing to teach and work with you; not against you. Teann is a fantastic photographer and mentor . I look forward to the images we will create together in the future!
P.S. Here are her adorable Guinea Pigs, Pickles and Mouse!
