Art by Melinda Dalke (above) please check her out she is AMAZING!!!!!

~ Jennifer Gilcrist

I love reading my friend Sonja McGiboney‘s notes on becoming a professional pet and human photographer, found here.

~ Anne Balduf

Gregory Colbert’s Ashes and Snow is one of my favorite collections. I have several of his prints framed on my wall. The Ashes and Snow collection shows the bond between man and animal – his work is beautiful.

~ Jaime Schlusser

I would say Tom Athanasiou from Pitbull Shirt and Tommy Pop Art. I love his artwork!!

~ Robine Yvonne France

Derek Zielinski (right) – I saw this link on Modified K9 pit bull rescue and when you purchase art or have custom pet portraits done, proceeds benefit the rescue. And his art work is awesome!

Me! And Tom Athanasiou from Tommy Pop Art.

Jenn Frankavitz Photography does an amazing job with pet photos! I also love the collars by Fairy Tail Collars and tags by Fetching Tags!

CaliGirl Collars. They do some absolutely beautiful and affordable work and all hand done.

~ Valerie Sherman

Ken Bailey

Alyssa Rose Photography (above) in Seattle was amazing with our three dogs! Even our skittish Mastiff! I’ve received countless compliments on her photos and my husband and I were thrilled with them too.

~ Tara Evers

Susan Sabo Small Dogs, in SoCal. Amazing photography.

~ Jean Rabinowitz

My favorite is Shots By Dot here in Atlanta. She took beautiful pictures of Cinnamon, Buster and I really wanted some good pics of my Bubby boy, before he goes downhill from the cancer. She did a wonderful job and cried along with me. She is an awesome woman and great photographer.

~ Katherine Smith

Pecan Pie Puppies makes excellent collars and accessories, and they do pittie rescue to boot! I can’t tell you how many compliments Nina gets on all of her flowers.

~ Laura Cooke

For Photographers, I like two amazing chicks: Rita Earl who does so much with and for Villalobos Rescue Center and Alicia Anthony Baldwin who is a true talent in San Diego for Pretties with Pitties, Pitbull Rescue San Diego and photographs the Bakersfield 9 for Jericho’s Promise and StubbyDog.

Nikki Solone!!

The artwork of Kevin Stinehart makes an amazing reclaimed wood pit bull piece that is prize in my home! Yellow Brick Home paints amazing pieces as well!

~ Emily Anne


I love Claudine Simply Dog Photography (above) (she did the photos on my website) and Brian Rubenacker!

~ Sophie Duncan

Britt Croft Photography. Brittani drove two hours to photograph our shelter dogs free of charge. We all know a picture is worth a thousand words and for dogs in overcrowded and poor shelters a nice photo is sometime beyond the realm of reality. She hung with me as we jumped in and out of kennels trying to get as many photos as possible as we had limited time. I must say our dogs were dazzling and I’m sure many forever homes started with those photos. We had three hours to get as many as possible…see for yourself!

~ Maureen Mueller Distler

This requires a list! Melissa McDaniel, The Pet Studio, and Melinda Dalke! They all do fantastic work are very supportive of rescues and pit bulls!

~ Crissy Wilson Tadlock

Vivid Crystal Sisetki-Begin Designs. She does amazing work and donates to rescues and charities.

~ Rebecca Adams
