Tara Patty was amazing. My husband and I had family pictures taken with 4 dogs. We were hoping to get a decent picture or two in the end. Tara managed to get multiple amazing pictures of the whole family, plus each dog individually. I've had professional pictures taken with dogs on two other occasions and different photographers --Tara was by far the best! She was so patient and worked hard to get the perfect shots. Tara took her time with us and never made us feel like when were being rushed as I have experienced at other places. The next time I need family pictures, I will go nowhere else but Tara Patty Photography/Springs Pet Portraits. She was absolutely phenomenal.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Tara! I have two hyper, and usually camera shy, pups that I was nervous to bring in for their photoshoot. However, Tara's process flows so naturally that not once were we battling with our pups or forcing them into positions. Everything she captured was truly organic. She has an artistic eye and coordinates the set to compliment the coloring of your pet. She shoots quick and has her own quirky techniques for getting the dogs attention and keeping them curious. The quality of the photos and the print options she offers are unparalleled as well. I'd recommend Springs Pet Portraits to any pet parent and/or animal lover. You won't be disappointed!

"Tara photographed my two Border terriers, Cash and Sophie. Cash had just had his 12th birthday, and Sophie is going on 11 years of age, and I wanted some really good photos of them, individually and together. I checked around and several other dog owners recommended Tara. Thanks to Tara's skill (and patience -- boy, did she ever have to be patient!), she got a lot of fantastic photos. There were so many super-nice ones that it was hard to choose. Now I have photos of them all over the house! Tara's photos of my little guys demonstrate what I have always maintained -- that I have the cutest dogs ever! I highly recommend her.

"I had moved from Missouri to Colorado so I lost my fabulous photographers in Missouri who had done many of my cat and dog photos.  I recently adopted a sweet beautiful Maine Coon/Persian mix cat and found out some weeks after adopting him that he has bone mouth cancer.  I wanted professional pictures done of him but who to go to?  I got on the internet, came across Tara's website, contacted her leaving a voicemail explaining about Buddy's condition, she contacted me back immediately and scheduled us within two days.  I was delighted with her professionalism, her work, the time she took with him and me, and her openness to my ideas on what I wanted in poses with him.  She did a fabulous job.  I got the most beautiful 16x20 bust shot of my sweet Buddy and it now is displayed proudly on my living room wall.    I was very pleased. So much, that I'm taking one of my older kitties that I've been wanting to get professional photos done of her soon.  Thank you Tara for great service and awesome memory photos! "
