WHO WE ARE

We know dogs are family, which is why we are here. We'll capture your dog's unique personality and make it last for many years to come. Whether your dog is a goofball, a workaholic, a sweetheart, a social butterfly, a natural introvert, or anything in between, we want her personality to shine through the images. At Paws and Play Studio, we create custom artwork of your furry sweetheart out on location or inside the studio. We love images that tell a story, set a tone, and most importantly, bring smiles on our clients' faces!

WHO YOU ARE

You celebrate your dog’s birthday or adoption milestone and your phone contains more snapshots of your furbaby than anything else. You believe that memories are priceless and that dogs’ only fault is their lives are too short. You smile at the thought of your dog and treasure having a fun and joyful experience with him by your side! You need someone to create print-worthy photographs of your pup and capture the special bond you share with him. If you’re looking for a friendly photographer to capture professional photographs of your pup, you’re at the right place!

Hello! My name is Andrea and I am a professional dog photographer, widely known in the canine world as the treat lady. I know we share the same magical love for dogs if you are here on my page!

Dogs bring me an immense amount of happiness…they’re just so pure, adorable, soulful, and loyal it hurts! I live and breathe a house is not a home without a photographs of your dog—it would be my honor to photograph your furry best friend and create custom artwork for you. I love bringing joy into people’s lives and seeing people light up when they see something that touches their heart. I hope I can do the same for you!

My professional background lies in visual storytelling and positive dog training. I received my Bachelor of Fine Art degrees in Communication Design from Parsons School of Design and Film from Art Center College of Design, worked in video production, then took a detour to launch my dog training business. I am beyond grateful for finally combining my passions for design and dogs here at Paws and Play Studio!

Giving back to the community and helping the less fortunate animals is something I strongly believe in. I donate a portion of our proceeds to Bay Area animal rescue organizations which means, by supporting us, you take part in helping local animals in need!

I recently became a mom to a furless, two-legged baby girl. She's my “other” full-time job and keeps me on my toes! I reside in Belmont, happily married and proudly owned by Otto, the spunkiest little hunter with the stinkiest breath!

Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions and I look forward to meeting you and your pup in the near future!
