I LOVE wall art – and so do my clients! So, when I stumbled across these beautiful frames earlier this year, I knew they were going to be something that my clients would just adore.  Available in a wide variety of sizes, three different styles + several different colors, there is the perfect frame for everyone’s home!  Frames are available in identical size sets of 3 or 4 frames.  I also offer three pre-designed frame collections that create a stylish instant gallery on your wall.  Please inquire for a complete framing guide and pricing.

Back in August, I announced that I was taking a break from pet photography.  My wedding photography business grew by leaps and bounds this year and I’ll be the first to admit, I was feeling guilty about how that impacted the growth of my pet photography business.  I felt stagnant and that I didn’t have the time I wanted to devote to my pet photography.  Instead of leaving my blog + website lonely + outdated, I  thought it would be best to announce some sort of “break” from pet photography.  At the time, I didn’t quite know what that meant – but it felt good to “let it go” for a while.

Since then, I have received a ton of emails + messages from fans + potential clients.  I honestly had NO IDEA that there was still such a demand for my pet photography services!  I’m thrilled to know that there are people out there that love my work and who want to work with me… because pet photography is where it all started for me.  And it’s something that is so close to my heart!

After some soul searching, I have decided to “reopen” for business, in hopes that I can still serve those clients who want to work with me + who really want to invest in preserving their pets’ legacy through pet portraiture.  Due to my limited schedule, I will be taking on a limited number of weekday pet photography commissions each year.  If you or someone you know is interested in a pet portrait session, please let them know that I’m back.

I am also in the midst of revamping my website + blog, with hopes of launching something fresh before the end of the year.  So stay tuned!!  Thank you all for the continued support and for showing me that what I do really IS important + valuable to you all.  I look forward to many slobbery kisses this winter and in 2015!

It is with a very heavy heart that I formally announce that I will no longer be accepting pet photography commissions.  For the past 2 years, my focus as been on building my wedding photography business and – unfortunately – that has meant that my pet photography business has suffered.  I simply do not have the time I want or need to continue building Dana Cubbage Pet Photography and I know that my amazing little dream – my very FIRST photography business and the foundation of everything I am – deserves so much more.  I’ve been struggling about what to do for a while now and, while it breaks my heart to “close my doors” for a little while, I know it’s for the best.  So thank you to everyone who has believed in me + my little business for so long.  This really was the catalyst for everything I’m doing in my life right now and it will always remain “my baby”:) If you’d like to keep up with my latest adventures in wedding photography, please do so using the links below.  THANK YOU!!

Last year, I had the amazing opportunity to meet and photograph Chaser, an amazing Border Collie who resides in Spartanburg SC.  The publishers at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt found me online and contacted me, asking if I would be interested in shooting the cover for their upcoming book about Chaser.  To be honest, when I got that phone call, I was pretty speechless.  Me?  Shoot a book cover?  Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I’d have the opportunity to do that!  Of course, I was thrilled + honored to be asked and, after some research into commercial photography + how to handle all of that, we had a deal.

In January 2013, Brian + I made the trip upstate to meet Chaser + her entourage.  She is better known as the world’s smartest dog – she knows over one thousand words!  She was more than happy to show off her skills and she was such an awesome, well-behaved, and oh-so-photogenic model.  It was such a cool experience and one I’ll never forget.  Here are some of my favorites from our shoot…

The image on the right is the one they chose for the book cover.  As soon as I took this shot, I knew we had a winner.  Want to know our secret?  To get her to look into the camera, Brian was crouched right above me, tossing her blue rubber ball up in the air as I was kneeling on the floor taking the photo.  Boom!  Secrets of a pet photographer.

Oh Chaser.  You are such a beauty!  If you haven’t checked out the book yet, please do so!  It’s called Chaser : Unlocking the Genius of the Dog Who Knows a Thousand Words by John W. Pilley.  It’s first on my list of beach reads this summer – I absolutely can’t wait to dig into it!
