WE BELIEVE IN:

At Olin's pet photography studio, everyone is a pet lover. We are dedicated to creating a warm and welcoming environment for both pets and their owners, where everyone feels comfortable and relaxed. Olin understands that pets can be unpredictable and that each one has its own unique needs and requirements. She takes the time to get to know each pet and their personality, ensuring that they feel at ease during the photo shoot. For Olin and her team, pet photography is not just a job; it is a passion and a way of life. We believe in creating beautiful memories that capture the magical connection between pets and their owners, and we take great pride in being able to do so.

Our superpower is helping pet owners document the love and bond between them and their fur kids. 

Olin's values as a pet photographer are rooted in her love and respect for pets. She believes that each pet is unique and has its own personality and quirks that should be celebrated and captured through photography. Olin's approach to pet photography is fun, modern, and focuses on showcasing the pet's individuality. She understands that our fur babies are more than just pets; they are family members and deserve to be treated with the same care and attention as any other member of the family. Her goal is to create beautiful, timeless images that will be cherished for years to come.

Hi, I am Caroline. My good friends call me Olin and I have always loved animals. 

I remember my first cat and dog as a little girl. From then on I was in love. My father told me to stop bringing animals home with me. I'm a pet photographer with a passion for capturing the special bond between pets and their owners. My love for dogs began in 2000 when Milou, my black Portuguese Water Dog, came into my life and forever changed me. Together, we embarked on a life filled with dogs and dog sports, and she inspired me to start photographing them.

I believe that the bond between pets and their owners is truly unique, and I am dedicated to capturing that bond in every photo I take. I love highlighting pets of all breeds, colors, shapes, sizes, and ages, and my goal is to show their true personality in an authentic way. Whether we're shooting in my studio, on location, or in action, I focus on capturing special moments that will adorn the walls of your home.

My classical art training fuels my modern and refined style, and I aim to make every pet look like a star in Vanity Fair Magazine. My work is naturally suited to be displayed as wall hangings or heirloom quality photo albums that will last for years to come. When I'm not behind the camera, you can find me with my own family, including 2 human kids and 4 fur kids, who are always willing to model for me (thankfully, they all work for treats.

As a pet photographer


As a lover of dogs and photography, I started capturing dogs in action while attending agility competitions with my Portuguese Water Dog, Milou. Since then, I've photographed dogs for various clients including ESPN, American Kennel Club, and United States Dog Agility Association, among others. My experience in handling and training dogs enables me to connect with them, making them feel loved and comfortable during shoots. I even read dogs better than people! My background in performance dog sports as a trainer and handler lends itself to my work as a pet and dog photographer. I know dogs, I love dogs, I breathe dogs. I know how to work with your dogs and make them feel loved and comfortable. From timid dogs, to rambunctious ones and even fearful dogs or resource guarders, I understand dogs.

Aside from dog photography, I have also documented weddings and captured family portraits, and I am proud to have been recognized by Rangefinder Magazine and Junebug as a Top 30 Rising Star of Wedding Photography and Top 30 Engagement Photographer, respectively. But now, I am returning to my first love: dogs, and I am thrilled to document the special bond between pets and their humans through my modern, artistic style.
