Lydia’s expert photo-eye was able to capture the true essence and energy of Charlie, my Yorkie/Fox Terrier mix. The online web gallery was great to look through, share with friends, and pick out our favorite images. The photographs were artsy, professional, and absolutely fantastic. Creativity goes a long way with me and Lydia has a very open mind to ways and places to shoot. Anyone who truly loves their pet and wants to get a few amazingly candid shots should contact PhotoBark.

I never expected that it would be possible to get such great shots of my dog Murphy. Lydia was very patient with his puppy antics and what resulted were adorable puppy portraits. Thank you for your creativity in making amazing pet photography - I will definitely recommend you to my family and friends!

Lydia captured the very essence of Winston - happy, go-lucky puppy with so much personality. I treasure the photos of Winston! Lydia was so easy to work with and Winston immediately "performed" for her. I will certainly use Photobark again!
