My name is Janeane and I am based out of Grand Junction, Colorado where I started my pet photography business two years ago. With over 15 years of experience running two small businesses as a Web Developer and a Fine Art Portrait Photographer, it seemed a logical extension to take my photography and graphic design background and create a business that uses all of my talents and interests.
When I got my first puppy back in 2019 I was fascinated with focusing on the best way to photograph that little bundle of quickly changing wagginess. Raising a second pup cemented my number one focus on all things dog! With two Mini American Shepard’s I have kept busy with Obedience, Agility, and Nose Work training and competitions.
Photographing animals is definitely a challenge and it’s incredibly important to understand an animal’s motivation for inviting cooperation. I am always working to achieve that connection with love and respect.
When I am not photographing or training, I am busy hiking and exploring the beauty of Colorado, Utah, and recently Wyoming with my husband and pups. I like to photograph using a documentary style to catch animals in their natural state as well as pose them in a natural way to capture their beauty on location.
Showing my Fine Art Portrait work in galleries around the country I have gained experience in museum-quality printing. Sweet Light Pet Photography prints In-House with our professional quality large-format archival printer. We use only archival-quality, pigment-based inks, and paper, which make it possible to produce prints displaying impressive dynamic range, color accuracy, and rich shadow detail. We also partner with Bay Photo Lab to offer Acrylic, Canvas, Metal Prints, and Photo Albums.
