I'm in love

with your dog.

Wanna show off your dog’s awesomeness? I gotcha covered Northern Virginia and DC… and you too NYC.
Hey there, I’m Carina, the (slightly goofy) creator of Fuzzypants Pet Photography. It all started after snapping a photo of my Samwise contorting his 16-pound self into an epic kitty yoga stretch. I couldn’t help myself – 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 (F.I.T in NYC, baby!), and I have been photographing pets since 2011 – though I like to refer to sessions as a “portrait par-taaaay” (which is probably the only time this textbook introvert goes to a party.) I am a geek at heart, and I have a fondness – um, obsession – for all things Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, and Batman. (I learned the hard way that wildly curly hair can’t pull off a Bruce Wayne haircut. No, I’m not going to share the photo!)  I have a thing for Panera’s Broccoli Cheese soup so if you want to talk puppy breath, kitty toes, or (OMG) Harry Potter over coffee get in touch and let’s browse the muffin display!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I book a session?
Let’s talk! Get in touch with me, Carina, through EMAIL, phone (571.279.0412), carrier pigeon, or Owl Post! I’m happy to provide a completely free, no-obligation phone consultation. Or maybe you’d prefer to talk dogs, cats, or Harry Potter over coffee? We can do that too! (I have a thing for Panera’s Broccoli Cheese soup.) Ready to just skip to the fun part? Then let’s do this! Book your custom session date on my calendar and I’ll confirm with you super fast! (Clickity-click THIS LINK and let’s get this party started!)
Can people be included?
Yes, people are welcome for a few shots (max of 2 adults) but the majority of your session will be focused on getting the perfect images of your pet. If you prefer a family-based session or if you have more than 2 people, let me know and I’ll be glad to help find what you need!
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. Find information on business offerings right HERE.
