Trudy Gardner, has that unique ability to capture an animal's personality. She takes the time to get to know your animal and the time needed to capture and deliver that perfect image that will last a lifetime. She brings her calm, energetic personality to each photo shoot and through sheer patience, talent and commitment, can capture your dog's soul.

"Photographing dogs has become an extension of my business and my love for dogs. For 14 years, my professional pet sitting and dog training business; Half Moon Bay Dogs, subjected me to many different personalities. I'm not sure when I started taking my camera to work but at some point, my interest turned into a great passion. When dog owners started requesting pictures, I felt I owed it to them to capture that amazing photograph of their dog that will last a lifetime. Today I am living out my dream at Doggieville Ranch, a 5 acre dog ranch in Oregon, taking care of dogs and photographing them at the same time.

"I would rather see the portrait of a dog that I know, than all the allegorical paintings they can show me in the world." ~ Samuel Johnson
