Animal Image Photography



Welcome to Animal Image Photography.

Austin native Mary Thurston specializes in portraits of animal companions taken in the context of their daily lives. Drawing from four decades of personal experience with creatures of all kinds, she understands how to establish a rapport with dogs, cats and horses so they can be photographed during their most expressive moments. In the words of one client, "Mary catches that spark inside our animals. It's what makes her images different from the rest."

Animal Image applies an on-location approach to portraits--your pets stay happily secure on own their own turf while Mary works her camera magic to capture them at their spontaneous best.  Taken at your home or a  pet-friendly Austin-area location, a portrait session includes multiple settings and poses for both single and grouped subjects, and you get a take-home portfolio containing a CD of proof-images, contact sheets and test prints.   Call or email Mary to discuss your portrait needs or to schedule an appointment.
