Nancy Kieffer Photography

About Nancy Kieffer

Hi! I’m Nancy

I help pet parents create custom personalized artwork that bolsters their self-esteem, boosts their confidence, and reflects the unabashed acceptance and love their pet provides.  Pet portraits provide a visual reminder of unconditional love and support which strengthens us in times of need.

The impetus for my business was born out of my own loss.  My beloved Midnight had only just reached his fourth birthday when he died of lymphoma.  While I already was photographing landscapes and taking tons of pictures of Midnight, I didn’t realize until he was gone how few I had of him and I together.   I was heartbroken looking back through images, thinking where the pictures of us are bonding and doing things together.  The few pictures I had of us were mostly posed, leaving me with one impromptu image my sister took while we were walking together.  While I love the images I have of him, I continue to long to have images of us venturing out together doing the things we loved and showing the bond we had for each other.

I want my clients to be able to capture those special moments.  The special look they give you, the snuggle on the couch, the ears that perk up when they hear you coming to to door.  or the long walk you take with each other everyday.  The photographic experience is designed to allow you and your dog to touch each other, hug, walk or run together while I capture the looks and feel and special moments that make your bond so real.  We start out with a consultation in which I discover you and your pets story and the goal you have for your session.  The session is about you and your pet, and what makes your bond uniqueI encourage all pet parents to do this while their pet is still young and active, but will make every effort to create time for you on short notice, if you discover your pets’ journey with you is coming to an end.
