Kim Hoshal Photography - Portland, OR
Chances are, I am the person you see at the party most likely to be talking to the dog. And while it may take me a couple of times to remember an owner's name, I learn the dog's name really fast. When I see people on the street, I likely will say hello to their dog first. During my time as a professional landscape photographer, I learned that the art of creating stunning and vibrant images of the world around me was truly my zen place. Simply put, dogs and nature are the things that bring me the most joy. For that reason, I work to capture them in bright and colorful images. I decided to combine my love of dogs, photography, and nature to create one amazing career. I specialize in photographing dogs outdoors to create beautiful artwork that you can cherish for a lifetime.
Our dogs are only with us for such a short time and often we realize too late that we don't have any great photos of them. I know I regret not having photos of the dogs that I grew up with. I have my fond memories of them, but no photo to look at and really remember what they looked like. I want to help other people not experience that regret when the time comes. And I know you are thinking, but I have lots of photos on my phone. However, nothing compares to a portrait of your best friend hanging on your wall or an album of memories from a great destination photoshoot. Don't wait to celebrate your dog's life and the bond you share.
