About the Puptrait Studio | Washington D.C. & Maryland Pet Photography



As companions, dogs serve a very important role in our lives.

Dogs remind us to be happy.

To live with a dog you can't help but appreciate the small things. Whether it's taking a break from our hectic schedules for play or literally stopping to smell the roses, our dogs demand that we actively seek joy in our surroundings. When you consider what it truly means to be a dog person, the significance of these experiences is obvious.

If a dog's purpose is to find those little things that make our lives that much more interesting, shouldn't their portraits be just as curious and inspiring? We like to think so.

The Puptrait Studio was founded in 2015 with the purpose of celebrating this unique life enriching perspective. Developing stunningly creative and engaging pet portrait concepts and crafting high quality large format photo prints - our studio specializes in making unique and captivating fine art pieces that any true dog lover will cherish for a lifetime.

Whether you're visiting our dog friendly studio in Baltimore or working with us on locations throughout all of Maryland, Washington D.C., and Virginia, you can expect the Puptrait Studio to bring out the very best in your pet.
