Portraits are going to the dogs (and cats)
If you're like us, there's nothing you wouldn't do for your pet. (Cashmere sweater? Check. Fancy boarding? Check.) So we were thrilled to learn of these portraitists who specialize in custom pieces of our furry family members.
Pupography Working out of his Park Avenue studio, photographer Rod Goodman snaps dogs in adorable candid moments (owners are encouraged to jump in the photos, too). In-studio shoots cost $375 for 75 minutes, while shoots at a destination of your choosing are $575. Goodman also creates fun, Warhol-inspired renderings of Fido ($330 to $560 a print).
Pets in Photos Animal-lover Koren Reyes has a gift for capturing pets in regal poses, and we love the funny noises she makes to get the perfect perky ear or cocked head. In-studio sessions cost $795 an hour, while location sessions are $995. You'll walk away with three eight-by-10-inch prints and a custom photo album.
Painted Portraits East Hampton artist Ellen Silverberg paints pet portraits on canvas. Lend her a few photos, pick a canvas size, and your one-of-a-kind acrylic masterpiece will be ready in three to five weeks. ($300 to $7,500, depending on canvas size and number of animals).
