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.


Maggie is, of course, the sweetest gift we’ve ever received.

But to see my two girls together hanging out so peacefully sure is a close second :)

Gracie makes an excellent Boppy!

Yen - Wauw... Your photo's are really beautyfull! You take your time and find the right moment... That's very special! Even in Holland we love your photo's! We want more! We want more! We want more! :P

hailey - oh man I wish I had Earnest this well trained!! Your Gracie is brilliant!! Your daughter is a delight!! thanks for inspiring!

An Observer - Absolutely precious!!! Some 35 years ago we brought our firstborn (daughter) home to a black Great Dane that looked a lot like yours. Everyone was fearful of how the BIG...BLACK...Dog would respond to the baby, but we knew she would take her as her own, as she did. Wonderful, wonderful memories. PS: that daughter is a professional photographer in New Orleans now.

Anna - What precious photos! Keepers for sure, helps that both are so photogenic, and you obviously know what you're doing.. Hoping my 4 legger will be as good one day

michelle - these are so delightful. to see you capture both gracie and maggie in such creative and unique ways is just awesome. the last image of their feet makes me smile.

Jessica - Your little girl is THE most beautiful little baby girl I have ever seen!!!

My guy is already 16months... make that 17 months (see what I mean about time!!!)... You do realise that we are privileged to be able to take pics of our little ones as they blossom into the cutest little things... and I love how Gracie & Maggie have such an amazing bond already!
