The Importance Of Pet Photography Melbourne

Have you just decided to add a new puppy or kitten to your family? Just like children, animals grow up so quickly! They quickly go from sitting in our hands to taking up the whole couch! Capturing photographs of your new member of the family whilst they are still young is so special and great fun to look back on. A puppy photography session is always a bundle of laughs!

Unfortunately not all pets are with us for long, and it's heartbreaking to have to say goodbye. Having priceless photographs of them means you will never forget their gorgeous face and cheeky ways. Your love for them will be re-ignited every time you look at your beautiful photos!


Professional photographs allow you to hold the memory of your beloved pets and freeze this stage in your life so you can enjoy these memories for a lifetime. This is the reason why Melbourne pet photographer Michelle loves her job so much! She genuinely feels privileged to be asked into your lives to capture your memories and leave you with pet photos that you will treasure forever.

As an award-winning photographer and the owner of Captured Hearts Photography, Michelle takes the time needed to capture stunning portraits during a relaxed dog photoshoot or animal photoshoot. She is also very passionate about making the whole experience enjoyable for you all!


Michelle’s passion for photography began at the age of just 15.

Michelle understands that your dogs and pets can be just as special to you as children, or in many cases they are exclusively your "fur babies"! She loves capturing lifetime memories for you, plus who could resist the opportunity to cuddle your furry friend?! 

Dog Photography Melbourne

Without a doubt, dog photography is the most popular type of professional pet photography. Dogs have an amazing way of filling our lives with joy by being our best friend and showing complete devotion. They simply become a part of our family or, in a lot of cases, are the reason that couples become a family.

Dog Photographer Melbourne: Michelle of Captured Hearts Photography loves the sentimental value behind capturing precious memories of your dog, from puppy photos to seniors. Having professional photographs captured of your dog while they are young and lively is so important as these are the memories that you will truly treasure. Unfortunately many owners don't think about having photographs taken until their beloved dog shows signs of ageing or illness. Michelle has been contacted on many occasions by owners who are distraught because their beloved dog has unfortunately been given an un-treatable diagnosis. If you find yourself in this situation, please be assured that Michelle will do her utmost best to schedule a time with you ASAP so you can treasure the memory of your beloved dog forever with professional photos. 


Kimi, (Broadmeadows VIC)

"We drove all the way from the other side of Melbourne just to have our photos taken by Michelle and it was all worth it! Michelle was an absolute professional and patient with the outrageously stubborn bulldog and his photographically awkward hooman. Outdoor shoots are challenging especially in a new setting but she ensured that we were comfortable and included in the whole process. Love all the printed out photos and especially the big one in a frame which takes pride of place in the centre of our house. Very happy and highly recommend. Thank you Michelle.


Maddy, (Pakenham VIC)

"My fiancé and I recently had a photoshoot with Michelle for our new puppy. The entire process was very professional and fun! Michelle was very welcoming and patient with our naughty puppy. We are so happy with the photos we’ve received, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience."


Nicole, (Endeavour Hills VIC)

"Thanks Michelle for your fantastic work. You managed to capture the heart of my cheeky boy "Monty", and boy was he cheeky, running behind your drop sheet. You were so patient and kind, nothing was too much trouble for you. Your knowledge of how to get the best angle and photo was very comforting. Now that Monty has passed away I will forever cherish his portrait hanging on my wall."
