Vibrant, lively and genuine portraits of your best pet friends!

You adore your pet and have more photos of them on your phone than your entire family combined, but each of those pictures is a little blurry and out of focus due to your furball’s enthusiastic wiggle and wag!

“To this day I can’t believe the incredible photos Laura was able to get of my super hyper ‘never sits still ever not even for treats’ dog, Murphy! She was wonderfully patient, totally understood dog behaviour and captured portraits of my guy that bring a tear to my eye! Definitely an experience I’ll treasure forever!”  ~ DIANA W.


Vibrant, lively and too cute for words, Gooseberry Pet Portraits are one-of-a-kind!

Hi! I'm LAURA!

I believe in messy hair, red lipstick and puppy kisses. I’m more about sweet than chic and can usually be found guzzling tea (Earl Grey of course), dancing in the kitchen, running around after my two fur monsters, biking, baking and sipping rye and gingers with loved ones.

Before creating Gooseberry Studios, I worked as a multi-brand Web Editor for Canadian Living, Style at Home and ELLE Canada, where I was responsible for creating digital editorial content.

As the founder of Pawsh Magazine as well, I’ve devoted nearly a decade of my life to writing about and photographing the lives of dogs and the people who adore them.

Working with animals is an absolute passion of mine and I would love to photograph your sweet pet today! Dogs, cats, small animals, horses, goats, bunnies and more!

I would love to work with you and your pet!

This is for you if...

  • You're a proud pet parent who believes we can never have too many photos of our pets!
  • You take the phrase "crazy dog person" as a compliment!
  • You're tired of having nothing but blurry iPhone photos of your furry friend
  • You're located in Toronto or the GTA area


Ideal as a gift for the dog-loving person in your life or just because!

Frequently Asked Questions

My dog won’t sit still for the camera. Is that a problem?
Nope! Not at all! In fact the majority of the dogs and animals we work with don’t sit still — and that’s okay! It’s our job to follow their lead and capture their true personalities, extra bounce and all! Most dog portraits in our portfolio features a bouncy pup!

How long until I can see the photos?
You will be able to see footage from the photo session three business days after the shoot and your final collection will be ready within two weeks!

Can I be in the photos with my dog?
Yes! In fact, we encourage it! Our pet portrait sessions are suitable for up to two people and two pets (an additional $25/person or pet will apply beyond that).

What kind of pets do you photograph?
We’ve worked with dogs, cats, hedgehogs, small animals, horses, goats, bunnies — the list goes on and on!

How do we choose a place to take photos?
Gooseberry takes care of every detail for you, including location scouting! We chat about your preferred aesthetic and tone and then we offer a variety of location options to suit your vision and to give your photo session an extra special quality! Studio and on location options available.

What if it rains on our shoot day?
No problem at all! We always schedule a rain date with you too so if Mother Nature has other plans there’s no need to worry!

What if my dog is very shy around new people?
Gooseberry brings over a decade of experience photographing dogs and pets to your photo session. We’ve worked with all kinds of temperaments and behaviours and make sure to speak with you in advance of your shoot date to make any special preparations to ensure your pet is comfortable, relaxed and happy throughout the experience.

Winnie is a big part of our family and being able to include all five of us in our photo session was a dream come true! Not only did we each get beautiful portraits with him individually, but Laura captured wonderful group shots and lots of in action moments of us all playing together. Cannot believe how well they turned out!” ~ ALEXA S.
