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.

The Best of 2008

I don’t think any words can appropriately express the kind of year I have had. I have tried a few times but the words just don’t seem to fit. 2008 was the year that I completely disregarded what was logical and followed my heart. What you see and experience through my blog and in my...

We did Christmas again this weekend in Sequim at my sister’s house. This was Miss Gracie on Christmas morning. Not known for being into relaxing, this was Winston on Christmas morning. Alert and ready for any toy that might pop out of the wrapping paper. Not a dog but he still qualifies as an animal...

Merry Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! We are set to have a very white Christmas this year in Seattle. I heard on the news yesterday that the last time we had a white Christmas was in 1990! We have been housebound for a few days but I really do not mind it. It forces me to slow...
