About me

I AM A LOVER OF 

...BABBLING BROOKS

...SUNRISES

...EXPLORING THE WORLD

..and PETS

I am a believer in being surrounded by artwork that reflects our uniqueness and bolsters our confidence.

My first dog as a child left me when I was living in another town.  My first dog as an adult left me way to young to cancer. Even though I had many pictures of them, I realized I had very few images of us together and what our bond was together. I had nothing to show what they really meant to me.

At that point I knew I had to help other pet parents have artwork that reflects their journey with their pet. 

Can I help you create Artwork that reflects what your pet means to you?

2020 brought a wonderful increase in pet adoptions.  The fact that businesses were closed and large social events decreased, brought families together to spend quality time with each other.  Families then saw it in their hearts to share their home with the many abandoned pets that were in shelters.

While this was a wonderful accomplishment, shelters have recently seen an increase in pets at the shelters.  Pets can be abandoned for multiple reasons:

  • Illness of pet or family member
  • Time to take care of pet
  • Unable to effectively manage an animals behaviors
  • Change in Family circumstances (moving, new child)
  • Money

I have been blessed to have spent the past 7 years serving local animal shelters taking photos of the animals in order to promote adoption.  Pro Bono services have provided Nancy Kieffer Photography to photograph >250 dogs, >1000 miles traveled and >$100,000 value provided. (based on cost of images)

Horse and owner

Prompt and professional.

For starters, this was the first time I've ever had my pictures taken by a professional photographer.  She was prompt and professional and obviously knew what she was doing and was familiar with angles and lighting as well as what poses would look best. Another huge bonus is that her prices are reasonable.  I will definitely be utilizing her services the next time I need a professional photographer. thank you Nancy!

Nancy was very Patient.

Nancy came to my home to photograph my cat Tinkerbelle.  This was not an easy task as cats don't really respond well to commands! Nancy was very patient. She played with Tinkerbelle to get different looks/poses. She had equipment to control/enhance lighting and an excellent camera.  She took so many wonderful shots that I had a hard time choosing what to pick.

I met Nancy thru Second Chance Canine Shelter in Jamesville NY. She is a volunteer photographer at the shelter and is always ready when she gets a call for her service. I’ve witnessed Nancy work very hard to get her business up and running while working full time.

She has also take several photographs of my four dogs at different times. Since 2017 We’ve given Suzi and Brinna (foster’s from SC shelter) a spoiled second chance to live out their best end of life. The other two are beagles named Holly and Cooper. Nancy is very patient and a great photographer. I plan on getting a custom ornament and a hand rendered mixed media painting from Nancy. I'll be in touch Nancy.

Nancy was wonderful to work with! She does excellent work and was very flexible when we had weather (and toddler) problems. The turn around time was fast. Fantastic experience!

FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

YES!  Most of the dogs that I photograph stay on leash throughout the entire session for their safety.  I can even capture action images with the use of a long leash. Thanks to photoshop, the leash can be removed from most images you order.
