Welcome to Fuzzypants Pet Photography: Your pet is a rockstar! Show off all their awesomeness with playful, candid pet photography. Serving Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and New York City.


Hi, I’m Carina! I created Fuzzypants Pet Photography after snapping a photo of my cat Samwise, contorting his 16-pound self into an epic kitty yoga stretch. I’m pretty sure my exact words were “Samwise, you sure do have some fuzzy pants!”

I’ve had a camera attached to my hand since I was a teen, and I have been photographing pets since 2011. I am a geek at heart, and I have a fondness for all things Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, and Batman. (As a child, I learned the hard way that I can’t pull off a Bruce Wayne haircut. Not cool.)  I have a thing for Panera’s Broccoli Cheese soup so if you want to talk dogs, cats, or Lord of the Rings over coffee get in touch and let’s browse the muffin display!

My dog will never sit still for pictures.
While not exactly a question, this is the most frequent comment I hear and my response is always, “Excellent!” If you have an energetic dog, I definitely do not want to change that about them and I want that energy to shine through in their photos. I do lots of running around and rolling around so that they feel as natural and happy as possible. The investment I’ve made in my equipment, lenses, and learning to use them properly allows me to capture the action “mid-zoomie”!
Do you work with local businesses?
Yes! Commercial and editorial inquiries are welcome for pet-related businesses, products, and publications. I will be happy to quote hourly, half-day, or full day rates based on your specific needs. Licensing is also available for my current collection of images. I love supporting other local pet businesses as well! If you have ideas ideas for partnerships, I’d love to hear from you.
More FAQ's


I love Northern Virginia. From the Loudoun County Wine Trail to the short Metro ride into the museums, monuments, and rich history of DC, NoVA has been the perfect place for me to indulge in every one of my varied interests. I love using the many trails for more than just running!

Magazine Covers:

You may have seen my images on several covers of The Virginia Maryland DC Dog over the last few years but did you know that every dog featured on the cover was up for adoption? 100% of the featured dogs have found their forever homes (including Hope, this special needs girl) and I’m so honored to be a part of that.
