Stay, stay…stay.


Everyone loves having photos of their beloved pets – maybe a good Christmas idea – but getting them to turn out just right can sometimes be a problem.

But every problem has a solution.

Pretty Paws Pet Photography LLC is a photography business for pets and their owners. They offer a variety of sitting choices, with seasonal and general backgrounds in the studio and they also make house calls. They will travel to a home to photograph the family with pets or, in the case of horses, they go to the stable or barn and even horse shows.

They are available whenever and wherever is convenient for you and your pets.

Cheryl Sutherland said she and her husbands’ love for pets has given them the opportunity to start Pretty Paws Pet Photography, LLC.

“We try to make our subjects and their owners feel at ease when being photographed,” Sutherland said. “We try to bond with the animals we photograph so they are more comfortable during the portrait session.”

Sutherland’s love for photography goes back over 30 years, but her love for pets goes back even further. She has had many types of pets over the years including a piglet, a lamb and ducklings. After a work life in the corporate world, she wanted something more personal and fulfilling.

“We knew some photographers were leery of inviting pets into their studios and many would not venture out to stables and arenas so we saw a need in the community for such a specialized business,” Sutherland said.

Sutherland said she has been inspired by photographer, Edda Taylor, of Edda Taylor Photographie in Crown Point.

“Her positive attitude toward her subjects and the joy she finds in capturing the moment is wonderful, and she is always eager to share her knowledge with other photographers,” Sutherland said.

Pretty Paws Pet Photography is located at 405 Elm St. in Valparaiso inside Coco’s Canine Cabana. Studio portrait sessions are $35 for one or two pets, and an additional $10 is added for more than two pets. Photographs at your home, if within 30 miles of Valparaiso, are $45.
