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.

It’s a Gracie kind of day. We hit the backyard at sunset a few days ago to take advantage of the beautiful fall light. It is hard to believe that after 4 1/2 years of shooting Gracie, that I can still come up with new shots of her. She is the best model.

Happy Howloween

The little dogs have all the fun when it comes to fashion. I am in full on panic mode now for Gracie’s Halloween costume. It is a safe bet that she will not fit into any costume made for dogs, because well, she is rather large chested (and proud of it!) Last year I called...
