Artist Statment

I can’t make your pet live forever in a physical sense, just as I couldn't mine. We all know that they are with us for a very few short years. When the day comes that we have to say “goodbye,” the pain can be immense, however what I can do for you is capture a wonderful moment in time that will bring you great joy and fond memories for the rest of your life! An Investment you will never regret.

Comments from a few clients;

Dear Deanna,

As my pet has aged these portraits have become more and more precious and appreciated . We won't always have our adorable Bichon Frise but we have captured him and his memory in theses most treasured portraits .

I am so grateful that I had two portrait sessions over the years with D .Urs photography. She photographed our precious family pet and created the most beautiful memorable portraits (or portraiture )that will always be heirloom treasures in our family .

Sincerely, Roxie Weaver,

Dear Deanna,

We had to put Jeffry down. He was Suffering, his heart was bad and it came about really quick. He had a long life and we have many fun memories and there was of course his infamous personality. I am so indebted, gratefully to you for your photography skills and the most precious moments that you captured in portraits. I love that I have them and love you for insisting that we do the shoots.

Thank you, Thank you , Thank you! Roxie

I highly regard Deanna Urs Photography when it comes to quality and professionalism. She photographed our boxer, Tea in the winter of her life, and so has given our family a precious piece of art to remember her by. She paired her creativity with caring and sensitivity during the photo shoot to provide a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We consider her a member of our family and could not recommend her highly enough.

Look at what you did to my dogs. Needless to say no playing tonight.

We had a great time. Thank you.

I look forward to seeing your photos. I'm soooo excited.


Deanna recently helped me with a very special present for the man in my life and I am beyond satisfied with the results. I heard about Deanna after seeing one her professional puppy pictures in a friend's home. It was absolutely the cutest thing I had ever seen... that is until I got my photos back. Deanna did a photo shoot of my two pomeranians last month and I am in LOVE with the images. I asked Deanna to use my favorite photos (which were very difficult to narrow down as I loved them all) to compose an album. She designed the most gorgeous leather bound album of my babies. I just gave the album to my man and he was ecstatic. He said it was the best present he has ever received! He took it with him to work to show off to his coworkers. I am hoping he brings it back soon so i can put it on my coffee table and enjoy it too.

Deanna was more than accommodating throughout the entire process. She drove to my home multiple times so show me layout options and deliver the products (thank goodness because I am incredibly busy). I would recommend Deanna to any of my closest friends. She is professional and incredibly talented.


Deanna first captured my oldest daughter’s wedding photo in 2000 after we had a disappointing experience with the photographers that were hired to photograph our special event. I wanted just that one special photo and she nailed it. We have been her loyal customers over the next thirteen years. We call our home the Deanner shrine. All our photographs are pieces of ART and have sometimes proven to be very timely blessings. We particularly enjoy bringing our animals and including them in our photos. On my granddaughters nine month photo we included our hundred twenty pound Bullmastiff whom she loved was her best friend.Two months later Hogan died in an unexpected accident. We ended up being so thankful to have the memories which bring us so much joy to look at and now priceless!

Deanna never disappoints with her creative new inventive ways to make our memories special with her eye for the unusual and unexpected.
