Lethbridge Pet Photography

Photographing pets and animals has always been one of my most beloved parts of what I do… so much so that I have created a new section of my business dedicated to just that! I’m proud to announce Puppy Love Pet Photography (www.lethbridgepets.com) in addition to the services I already offer.

If you are thinking of honoring your pet with photos or looking for a great gift, NOW is the time to invest. Until April 15th, I will be donating 100% of the session fees from Puppy Love Photography towards the Last Chance Cat Ranch. Sessions can be purchased as gift certificates and used any time before July 31st, and prices are available at the website.

Please call 403-892-3540 or email info@tanyaplonka.com to invest in this great donation gift.

p.s. The response to the tragedy at the Last Chance Cat Ranch (both in Lethbridge and beyond) has been so overwhelming that they’ve gotten more than enough to cover the vet bills, but let’s not let it stop there! Year round they help a large number of abandoned cats and are always in need of food, litter, other supplies, and vet expenses. Let’s keep helping after the organization recovers :)

Photo of family with black dogs in Lethbridge

I just adore taking photos where pets are involved, so I was beyond thrilled when Janeal contacted me about family photos with her (human) daughter Erin and their furry children. Matching dogs Sniper and Guinness were so gorgeous and playful, and even though they were pretty crazy (as most dogs are!) they listened to their mom so well. I already photographed Sniper earlier last year when he was giving a demo at the MS Walk (picture after the cut), but this was the first time I actually met him. I had a great time with them, and even Erin’s adorable cat Romeo joined us for a few photos! (more…)

Adam, Trish, & the Dogs | Lethbridge Family Photos

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

I’ve known Trish for what is getting close to ten years now, so I was thrilled to finally take family photos of her, Adam, and their fur babies, Tucker and Morrison. They are such a cute family and some of the nicest people I have ever met :) Their dogs are so sweet and even though they were exploding with energy, they listened so well. Morrison wanted to be in every photo and usually trampled Tucker (and me) in efforts to be included! (more…)

Cat available for adoption in Lethbridge, Alberta at the Last Chance Cat Ranch

More kitties! The Lethbridge Last Chance Cat Ranch recently received some additions and I got to come out for more cat cuddles and photograph them. A few were quite shy at first, but with our persistence they quickly learned they could get lots of head scratches! I also got to meet an adorable set of four kittens who were being shown at Pet Valu for the day! All of these cats are available through the Last Chance Cat Ranch and are very deserving of good homes. (more…)

Irene, Jed, and the fur babies | Lethbridge Couple and Dog Photography

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Irene and Jed wanted to get some family photos done while their beloved senior dog was still with them. We met up on a very blustery day, which just made the dogs look like supermodels with billowing hair :) Moufassa and Finnegan were such beautiful dogs and I had so much fun with them! They had such contrasting personalities; the senior Moufie was so laid back but wanted to check out everything, while Finnegan has energy like he’s a few years younger but was totally fine chilling out with us. Irene and Jed with their fur babies make such a cute family :)

It is so sad that Moufie is no longer with us, but I am grateful I had the opportunity to capture his spirit in photographs so that they can always have the memories to look back on. He was very clearly an amazing dog and will be greatly missed :( (more…)
