Celebrate Pets!

Our Mission

Our mission is to create images of life through unique and fine art photography. Our greatest wish is that our photographic images will be valued and cherished now... and for future generations.

It is such a kick to be one of the top pet photographers in the Kansas City area!  How great is it to be able to roll around on the floor, get handshakes and sloppy kisses from a new furry friend... all while making a beautiful portrait for their human?  We have the perfect combination of love for the animal and skill in our craft.  Lori is a Master Photographer through the PPA and has been photographing pets for over 15 years.

About Lori McMillian-Hahn the Animal Lover...

Owner | Photographic Artist & Master Photographer

Celebrate Pets-


I am in love with not only my husband of over 25 years, a son that has left the nest, but our adopted house pets.  We have two fur babies Charlie, our adopted Doxiepoo and Ali, a sweet terrier mix, that we have spoiled rotten...:)  We also have a sweet rabbit, Heather, and George the clingy cockatiel.  Since childhood I have had a passion for all furry, feathery, and even scaly family members. My mother frequently reminds me how upset I would be with her, because she wouldn't let me have more pets. So, I was determined that when I grew up, I would have a whole room full of animals... :) Yes, so I do now! Luckily my husband loves them as much as I do! They are truly a blessing in our lives! Whether I am photographing puppies once a month to capture every small change or catching the last images of an elderly pet, these images are priceless to the whole family. I am privileged to be able to provide this art to you.
