I'm Allison Shamrell and I'm a professional pet photographer in San Diego, CA! I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon and went to college at the University of Notre Dame in the midwest. I actually had the chance to start my photography career on the sidelines of the football field - and it was amazing - but after graduating, I moved to a part of the country with no major sports teams: Pensacola, FL. So it was only after trying other genres of photography that we eventually adopted our 4-legged daughter, Bailey, and I discovered pet photography! Combining the fun of action photography with meaningful portraiture of our furry family members? Yes please!
We moved from Florida to San Diego, CA in 2013 when my husband left active duty military service, and I've held the voted title of "San Diego's Best Pet Photographer" every year since. I work exclusively with pets and their families (as well as commercial clients), specializing in dogs, and my schedule is booked to capacity each month with dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds. After six years in business, I teamed up with my local "competitor" to unleash an educational resource for pet photographers of all skill levels, Professional Pooch.
When I'm not in my studio, you can find me reading business books, enjoying Mexican food and playing at the dog beach with Bailey!
