Pet Photography by Alicia Scott – Wellington Photographer

Pet photography is so much fun! By being a pet photographer I’m lucky to be able to combine my passion for photography with my love of animals. And aren’t our furry babies more than just pets? They are part of the family!

In the past I have had dogs – a beautiful Keeshond (Bo), and two rescue dogs (Dandy and Simoncito) – and until recently I had four cats. But at the moment I have just one adorable kitty – an Egyptian Mau (Xerxes) – sponsored by Cats Protection Wellington (CPW).

Dog Photography

They say that dogs are man’s (or woman’s!) best friend! Where would we be without our loyal furry companions? Here are some images of a number of the awesome dogs I’ve had the pleasure of photographing.

Cat Photography

Are you a dog person or a cat person? Fortunately I’m both! Apparently, although dogs are more commonly searched for online, cats still rule the Internet due to all those cute cat videos and photos …

Below is a small selection of some of the cute kitties I’ve photographed.

Photographing Pets and their Caregivers

Of course, Fido or Felix don’t have to be the only stars of the show – you can be in the shot too! And pet photos can be taken with their caregivers at play, or at work.

Pet Photography at Weddings

More and more of my wedding clients are also involving their beloved pets in their special day – as ring bearers, in the bridal party, ‘helping’ the bride get ready, or just being there because they are part of the family. Or they might just be gatecrashers!

Pet Photography Sessions

I often find that your beloved pets are more relaxed ‘on location’. Cats might prefer a warm spot indoors, or their favourite place in your garden. Dogs might like to go somewhere they often play and run, such as a local park. And it’s not just about cat photography or dog photography – if you have pets other than cats or dogs, I’m of course very happy to photograph them too!

Send me an email, or give me a call, and we can have a chat about what might work best. Otherwise, you could just fill out the enquiry form on my Contact page for information about my pet photography collections/packages and current prices.

And although I’m based in Petone, I provide photographic services in the Wellington, Hutt Valley, Kapiti Coast and Wairarapa regions, as well as throughout New Zealand, and even overseas. For instance, I recently had a great time taking photos for The Diplomatic Dog, which provides dog training in Washington DC.


I Support Cats Protection Wellington

When I can, I volunteer at CPW’s shelter, and I’ve had a lot of fun being the photographer and designer for their fund-raising calendars for the last six years.


CPW is a small organisation that cares and helps cats to find their forever homes. All cats have been desexed and vet checked before leaving CPW’s shelter in Kingston. Volunteering at CPW is a lovely and rewarding experience, as you not only get to help the cats in need, but also get to meet people with a common interest.

If you are looking to adopt or sponsor a kitty companion now, please visit CPW’s website to give you an idea of all the adorable moggies the shelter has available right now.
