"Your photography is so

is truly amazing. Some of the photos of older dogs brought tears to
my eyes. Thanks for sharing your gift - what a joy."
"Oh my gosh - these are
AH Mazing!!! Thank you!"
"How do you capture that "something"
that "essence ... that "soul"?! Your work ... well,
I can't stop looking ... the eyes, the moment, the heart and just
the beauty is amazing. I would like to think I am more articulate

I've seen of all the dogs we've owned over the years. They have so

"Hi Jeanne, I gave my husband
the portrait of Elway and I yesterday and he loved it!!! He was amazed
by all the photos."
"They came out so awesome.
I actually teared up on several of them. You captured the beauty of
everything most important to us ... our son and fur babies. Thank
you so much."
"WE LOVE THE PICS!!! My
goodness! I can almost make out a conversation with the ones with
Tammy & Rover together! Soooo cute! I had a rough day at work
and was really exhausted today. But seeing the kids and these pics
made my day! Thanks so much Jeanne! Love, love, love them very much!"
Very sweet note from Tank &
Diva's grandma: "I was fortunate enough to watch Jeanne work
with my son's dogs. She is magical with dogs and made it fun for them
for the entire two hour session. Even when they were not cooperating,
she was able to just laugh and make the best of what they were doing.
And did I say, she did all this pro bono? A true angel."
"Thanks, these are awesome.
Phil and I love this. Madi said "I could be a model."
"James picked up the book
today. It's more beautiful than I ever even could have imagined. Thank
you. She was so beautiful and you captured all of her. And it really
does tell a story. The spreads with her and Josie and of the three
or four of us are wonderful. Thank you for encouraging us to do that."
"I got the prints and calendars
today--everything looks AWESOME!!!! Thanks so much for the extra prints,
now my mom won't feel left out!! Thanks again and we'll definitely
stay in touch!"
"You had some amazing pictures
of Buster! Thanks for such a great day."
"The pictures of my father
and Molly are just too precious for words. I will treasure them always.
And it's lovely to have pictures of Miss Daisy as well - you captured
her softness beautifully. I cannot wait to show our pictures off!"
"My dad absolutely loved
the pictures! He was so proud of his Molly. I really cannot thank
you enough for the photos. You really helped me give my dad the best
present he’s ever gotten – I’ve never seen him smile
so proudly! You were so patient – we really do appreciate it.
"I love the album! Will
be hard to decide how many shots to keep!"
"I love ALL of the pictures!
You certainly have an amazing talent to capture a person’s spirit
and personality in each shot! THANKS!"
"Thanks for a great experience
and some really wonderful pictures!"
"They’re just beyond
amazing. Still clicking through them repeatedly - I just can’t
get over how well you captured everyone in these! Everyone I have
shown these to is just gobsmacked by how awesome they are."
“I can't begin to tell
you how much we love all of the pictures and how much we have enjoyed
working with you. In a word...beautiful...no make that incredible...er
unbelievable! The resolution of the images is fantastic and what you
did with the mixture of b/w, sepia, and color was great. And your
design work and layout for our book was wonderful. Lastly, thank you
so much for the 16 X 20. This was so sweet of you. I went to 3 stores
this weekend until I found just the right frames for the 5 X 7s. They
each now reside in just the right place within our home. Every time
we pass them we will remember the wonderful experience of working
with you. You have an incredible talent and love for both photography
and animals. We look forward to working with you again...perhaps in
the spring since Julie says that you are not a winter person. Take
care and thank you so much for capturing the beauty and essence of
our four-legged loved ones.”
"We can’t even put
into words how much we love the pictures and the book. We know we
have told you this before but your pictures capture the true soul
of the animals that you photograph. Even though we had seen the photos
on your website we were once more blown away by the beauty of our
sweet girl and the perfect setting you chose for her shots. Thank
you again for making her birthday extra special this year."
"Between the tears, I thank
you for the precious gift and for seeing such beauty in my best friend."
"Thank you so much for the
beautiful portraits – you brought tears to my eyes."
"I just received the proofs
yesterday and I LOVE them!! You do a wonderful job of capturing animals
in the natural environment. Thank you again!"
"Thank you from the bottom
of my heart for coming and spending so much time with my kids, Angie
and Toby. Your patience and exceptional skill are truly appreciated.
They instantly warmed up and took more than a liking to you, they
were in love with you. I am ever too grateful and appreciative of
the spectacular photographs that you have taken. Their personality
and demeanor has been captured perfectly, the pictures brought me
to tears with a joy and gratitude. I will treasure these photos forever,
even when they are no more, as they portray Angie and Toby's true
being and personalities."
"Thank you so much. I took
a peek and I am so touched by what an incredible job you did."
"I just returned this morning
and was so happy to see the pictures!!! I just LOVE all of them."
"I love these
pictures. I started crying when I saw Emma’s because you really
captured “Emma” and her sweetness. Then I saw Huck and
Merlin’s and couldn’t believe it. These pictures are a
perfect presentation of each of their characteristics that I love
so much about them – Emma’s sweetness, Huck’s soulful
eyes and Merlin’s stoicism ... I can’t wait to see the
"I took a quick
look and love them all! Thank you so much. You really captured her
"personality". I'll take a more serious look later today
with the family, but just wanted to tell you thanks. They are gorgeous,
just like my super model dog."

with all of the extras in the box. Bear is already enjoying his new
toy. Thank you for your generosity and I hope you enjoy the rest of
"Thanks Jeanne! I think
everyone had a great time and you are so easy to work with. Obviously
the dogs all were very comfortable with you!"
"Wow! Perhaps I should restate
that...WOW! The pictures of Abby and Rooney are fantastic. We can't
begin to tell you how pleased we are with the results. There are so
many beautiful images and you did such a great job with the artwork.
You have a wonderful talent and your love of photography and dogs
is a joy to see. You have truly captured the essence of our two babies.
There is much more that I want to say but wanted to send a quick note
out to you tonight. Thank you so very much!"
"When I opened the book
I immediately began crying! I LOVE IT! Every single picture and page
is absolutely perfect!!! I cried the entire time I looked through
it! I can't stop looking at it! It truly is awesome!"
"The shots are all so good,
it was hard to pick! Can't wait to see [the book]. I thought your
work was stellar!"
"Thank you for donating
your time today. I really enjoyed meeting you - your love for animals
is very obvious as was reflected in how my dogs reacted to you."
"We love the calendar. ...
the paper is of excellent quality and the pictures, of course, are
beautiful. We could not be more pleased. It is a wonderful gift that
I was very pleased to present."
"Thank you for the beautiful
pictures - who knew that just two short months later, one of my pups
would not be here anymore. It makes these all the more special to
"Here, to the best of my ability,
is a description of how they were received.
1. Shock: How did you do this? When did
you do this? How did you manage to keep this a secret?
2. Amazement: Look at my boy! That is
EXACTLY how I always picture him. Doesn't he look regal? Angus and
Malcolm together! I think I'm going to die. Look at that silly grin!
Look at this one! Now look at this one! But then there's this one!
Malcolm, you're so handsome? Did you see these pictures of you?
Did you know that you are this handsome? How did she get him to
sit/pose/smile? These are just beautiful.
3. Tears: This is the best present anyone
could give me. I love them all so much. The pictures are JUST SO
BEAUTIFUL. Malcolm, now I can have you forever.
4. Acceptance: The next morning (like,
7AM morning,) pictures were being taken off the walls and The Malcolms
were being hung.
It was THE BEST gift giving experience
that I've ever had. Thank you so much."
