"It has been several years now since the Carl family began taking photos at my dog training facility.  The day goes smoothly as moms, dads and kids and especially their family pets come through the door throughout the day.  Vicki checks them in with a cheerful smile; sometimes Brandon is available to give the dogs a pet.  And Craig is at the ready behind the camera to apply his expertise and knowledge of photography.  We sometimes hear, 'I just know Rover won't sit still for this.'  When these questioning customers see their proofs the comments become, 'These are wonderful, amazing, I just love these.'  I have had my dogs photographed separately and together numerous times and treasure each picture.  I invited my granddaughter to join me for a holiday pose.  This is a special and beautiful keepsake.  Craig Carl never fails me, and I am always totally pleased with his work.” ~ Mary Kutulakis, Fieldwood Dog Training Center director, Carlisle, PA

“I must admit I was a bit nervous when I scheduled my pet portrait.  My dogs are not the best behaved creatures.  But Vicki and Craig made us feel at home the moment we arrived.  Their studio was comfortable and very dog friendly with a bunch of dog toys.  My dogs instantly relaxed on the sofa after running around to explore everything.  I was given options of what type of photo I wanted, but also was offered their expertise in achieving my precious portrait that so well represents my dogs' individual personalities. Thank you Vicki and Craig for giving me a memory I will cherish forever.” ~ Marlene Mahoney
