pet people are our people

Artistic Pet Photos for Fabulous Pets
in Buda, Kyle, & San Marcos Texas.

Your pets are your family.  Other people don't get it.  They think you're crazy for buying a stroller for your pug so he can enjoy the outdoors without getting overheated.  Or for getting that fourth cat tower.  Or for being excited when Santa has a "pet pics" night at the mall. But you know what?  Love is crazy.  And you've found it in spades.

Crazy little thing called love

Pet photography is all about patience...and cheese. Most pets love cheese

How it Works

In a word: yours.  Your pet's life is brief and portraits let us celebrate them while they are here, and remember them when they are gone.

What pets deserve custom portraits?

Here at Fabulous Fur, we are all about creating spectacular, one-of-a-kind, artisan portraits of your pet. And that takes some planning! You can book a zero-obligation consult to learn more about what we do, see our pet-centric albums and wall art, and plan a session by contacting us using the form below. And shortly after, we begin planning an amazing portrait session for your pet!


and then what?

Step 1:
Consult & Planning

Consultation & Planning 

We know your pet is adorable and you have a million pics on your phone of their cute faces, but we want to go over the top and produce something truly stunning. Think fun outfits, gorgeous locations, purrfect posing, custom florals, and amazing special effects like smoke bombs, sparklers, and more!  We plan out every aspect of the shoot, bring tons of treats, and keep your pets comfort and safety as top priority!

no worries - we know every pet is different and we  shoot at their pace and in their time.  if we don't get the images we want, we reschedule!

What if my pet is super shy?

Step 2:
A portrait production

Whether printing your pets artwork on a metallic-paged album, or as a huge canvas above your mantle, we painstakingly review each portrait to ensure it is the pick of the litter - we remove leashes and eye goopies, fix cataracts and patchy fur, and add in our own bit of magic to really set your pet's portraits apart! Feel free to check out the before and after gallery to see for yourself.

we have a laundry list of helpful tips to make sure your pet is photo-ready the day of their shoot. we are pet people, so we are pre-pawed for anything!

After the shoot, we have a printed reveal so you can see what your baby looks like in deep matte or punchy metallics!  Our pricing structure is set up so you can make easy decisions - without a ton of math, substitutions, or hard-to-understand packages.  You simply take what you love and leave what you don't.  Easy-peasey.  To find out more about pricing, contact Allie using the form below or download our information guide!

bring anyone and everyone who wants to see your fabulous images - who knows, your parents might want a canvas or album of their grandpuppy!

Step 4:
the big reveal

the big reveal

I am not only obsessed with cats and dogs, I also love all types of things that fly, slither, crawl, and hop!  I grew up having multiple animals at all times, worked at a rescue barn, and volunteered at the local shelter.  I even remember putting together a presentation for my parents when I was in 4th grade as to why I should adopt a pair of parakeets (I never got the parakeets but I learned some valuable presentation skills).


My pets make me so happy and I know I am not alone in that. I want to take the love you have for your pet and create amazing pieces of art!  And by amazing, I mean over-the-top images with awesome special effects like smoke bombs or fabulous accessories like flower collars!  Your dog is one-of-a-kind - shouldn't their portraits be too?  I want to get to know you and your pup, what makes them special, and showcase that in stunning portrait albums and gorgeous wall galleries. 

Cat obsessed and dog approved

Besides photography and pets, my other two great loves are my husband, Jc, and coffee. Obviously I love one more than the other...I mean, my love affair with coffee started in high school, so thats a pretty deep relationship.  

Just kidding. Jc has a no-holds-barred, enthusiastic, if-you-dream-it-you-can-do-it entrepreneurial spirit that awoken something inside me pretty quickly after we started dating. And I have found that his idea of entrepreneurialism is as addicting as it was infectious.

But... we are two total opposites. He is big picture, I am detail oriented. He is results driven, I am process driven. He is spontaneous, I am a planner. He is a dog guy, I am a cat lover. But somehow, it works for us.

Our differences make us stronger together than we ever could be on our own - and we both know that pretty well by now.

The technology age is great. It has lead to amazing improvements in quality of life and ease of communication that can't even be measured. But one negative is that most of the images of your pet live in your cell phone. When was the last time you printed images? And better yet - when was the last time you had anything professionally printed?

Well don't stress - that is exactly why we are here. We provide a one-stop-shop, full-service photography experience and will guide you through the entire process. There is a lot that goes on between planning and printing and we are experts at it all!

the end result

All of our albums will look stunning on the coffee table or displayed on a bookshelf.  But our goal is more than just pretty pictures in pretty books.  We strive to provide lasting, high-quality artwork that will not only stand the test of time, but will bring joy and sweet memories every time it is passed around.  Entrusting us to artistically photograph and display your pets' image is a big deal to us - and we do not take that responsibility lightly.

i mean, we do - we are total geeks about that stuff... but we get that you aren't and don't plan to be! 

after all, who wants to learn all the boring stuff like ratios, printing paper, and the different types of bindings anyhow? 

a book of your pet is just what the Vet ordered!

why albums?

Albums provide a purr-fect way to remember your pet - their goofy moments, the first year of their life, or their last precious days. All our albums are printed on archival quality paper so they will be sure to last for generations! They also all come with protective boxes or covers that help keep the images dust-free.

We believe that all pets are unique in their own way, and their album should reflect that. So we have several types of albums and endless amounts of customization within each option! You simply choose the amount of images you would like in your album, and the type of album you want. We design the album together during your ordering appointment, finalize any edits, and order the album later that week. Then it's just a matter of waiting by the door with waggy tails till the mail man arrives! 

want more flexibility than an album?  check out our folio boxes!

First of all, what IS a "folio box"?  A folio box is simply a container for printed images.  Our folios are hand-crafted wooden boxes covered in soft-touch Italian leather (and that means made in Italy as well) that protect, store, and showcase your matted and mounted works of art.  The lid is held on via hidden magnets in the corners and has a window feature in order to highlight your favourite image.

Folios can contain matted or mounted images - or a mixture of both!  We are currently obsessed with printing on super glossy metallics which perfectly match our style of over-the-top punchy colors and deep, rich tones.  We also offer printing on lustre or matte style papers if that is more your fit.

Our folios also offer flexibility for each individual piece of art. You can choose to display the images throughout your home, or keep them safe and protected within the box. Each folio also comes with a clear acrylic stand to show off one of your images on the table, counter, or desktop.

we have all been there - and dont worry, your mom will gush over her grandkitty's mounted metallic image as if it was actually meant for her!

Folios also provide an excellent way to gift prints when you completely forgot to get a gift in the first place!

thinking of artwork for above the mantel? check out our wall art options!

Whether you just moved into a brand new house or have been in the same home for years, I bet there is at least one wall that has remained bare for the simple reason that you don't know exactly how to fill the space.  Cue Fab Fur's wall galleries.  We offer pre-sized groupings as well as custom galleries to fit any space in your home.  Our wall art comes in brilliant metals or classic canvas wraps.

Our canvas wraps are custom built to allow for a unique collection of art. They are printed on beautiful pearl photographic paper that provides a glossy depth of image that will take your breath away! The image is wrapped around a 1.5" stretcher frame and they are completely finished on the back with black paper, bumpers, and a tooth hanger that allows the print to hang flat against the wall.

Our metals are perfect for a bright and edgy style that will showcase your art while creating brilliant color that pops! Metals are also available in custom sizes and come with an inset frame and wire hanger that allows it to “float” about an inch and a half off the wall. Their striking and vibrant colors highlight your art in a punchy and dynamic way.

metals offer tack-sharp images in a high gloss, modern style whereas canvases present your pets portrait in a refined and classy way with a tactile feel

So I am sold on wall art but what is the main difference between metals and canvases?

Want to see some before and afters of our photo enhancement process?

Our job doesn’t end when we put the camera down. We review and edit every photo in detail to ensure your images pop! We take note of any attention-needing spots from the pre-session consult like cataracts, patchy fur, or any red spots or discoloration and make sure none of that is present in the final images.


your pet is extraordinary - their portraits should be too

before & after

Mouse Over the images to see the difference!

We also do more than simple photo edits. We create amazing composites so you can have all 6 of your cats sitting nicely for a photo, or transport your pup into a dream land by enhancing the background and playing with light and tones.

All of this is discussed during the pre-session consult so we know exactly what we are working towards and how to make it happen!  We plan for what will look good on your wall or in your album and shoot showcase your pet at their best.
