Dog Photographer Erin Vey bio picture

Meet Erin Vey

I am a dog lover first.

A photographer second.

By some random chance of fate, I was able to combine the two loves into the coolest job ever: A Dog Photographer

I grew up in a family where dogs were always an integral part of our lives and most importantly, members of the family. Most of my childhood was spent with various Basset Hounds of the lovable but extremely stubborn variety. We never had less than 2 at any given time, sometimes 3, and the occasional stray that one of us would bring home for a visit.

After a short stint doing portrait work, which I still love, I realized my true calling is capturing the essence and personality of dogs. Upon reflection, I feel that my time doing portrait work was not wasted. Because of it, my experience with portrait work flows beautifully into working with people and their dogs.

My husband and I are owned by the fabulous Miss Gracie, a 5 year old Great Dane who brings energy and life into our house. You’ll see her around here a lot, she loves having her portrait taken (at least I like to think so).  She is a complete Diva and if you stick around long enough, you'll know what I'm talking about!

What an amazing adventure this has been so far. I’m so glad you are here experiencing it with me.

Daddy’s Girl

[Gracie decided to do her own post today.]

This is the story of one day when my Mom and I were in the backyard.

And then my Dad came home.

Here goes.
. . . . . .

I like it here.
I am usually either peering through the fence (right) or spooking out at some inanimate object in the yard.
But then I hear Daddy’s car and I run to the slider to see him come in. Can you see my tail wagging? If he doesn’t let me in quick enough than I slam my paw on the slider until he lets me in.
Hey. No fair. You are on your cell phone talking to someone else when you should be paying attention to me. It’s all about me!
He tried to get some privacy but I kept pacing back and forth. That usually works because I am so big he can’t ignore me.
Finally he stopped in one place and started to pet me. But I always get itchy and my Mom calls this the “Three Legged Dog”
I love my Dad.
Mom loves our feet.
I am waiting patiently for a cookie (My Mom loves this shot a lot)
More footsies.

I think I have a pretty good life. Don’t you?

The End.
