Meet Emma del Rey, professional photographer, animal lover, and a part of the Equipaws Pet Services family (her mother is our social media manager and head trainer!). Emma’s photographs are subtle, delicate, and stunning. She recently graduated from the New World School of the Arts.
1. When did you know you wanted to be a photographer and how did you get there?
I started shooting when I was 13. I was homeschooled so I had a lot of time on my hands. I began taking photos every day. At age 16/17 I started putting myself out there and working for free to get some clientele going. I eventually started meeting people and and those people knew other people that needed photography and it’s been growing ever since.
2. What is your inspiration/approach when taking photos of dogs? How do you get the “right” pictures?
I like shooting candids. I don’t really plan or pose the subjects but let whatever is happening in that moment happen. I think that is the “right” photo for me.
3. Do you have pets?
I have a dog, his name is Manfred. He is a rescue pit mix from West Palm Beach shelter. He is the sweetest and brings a lot of love and friendship to me and my family.
4. How far will you service clients?
Anywhere in Miami.
5. What are your typical photoshoots like? How can a client prepare to get the best out of their time with you?
To prepare for the shoot the only decision to be made prior would be the location. It could be anywhere.. the beach, the park, a home, or as simple as a walk around a neighborhood.
6.Until when is the holiday special available for Equipaws clients?
Until the end of the year.

Convenient Pet Portrait Sessions with MaxNorman Photography Now Available! (We’ve got you covered!)
Our pet sitters hang out with your pets daily and take tons of photos for Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter… We do our best with our camera phones, but your beautiful babies deserve to be captured by a professional. That’s why we have partnered with MaxNorman Pet Photography.
Our pet sitting and boarding clients have two pet photography options:
Mini-portrait session with your pooch or kitties brings: 5 web ready (meaning lo-res) digital files, 1 – 8×10 print, and access to your own private online gallery to order more prints or digital files. The price for this session is $55.
The full pet portrait session takes about an hour and includes: 20-30 hi-res digital files, $25 print credit and a disc with all the beautiful images. The charge for that would be $135.
We are thrilled that John approached us for this special offer for our clients. Not only is he a professional photographer. John is an avid animal lover and regularly volunteers his talent and skills at Miami-Dade Animal Services, photographing the dogs and cats in the shelter. A portion of all his pet portrait sessions get donated to local rescue groups.
Instructions for choosing your photos:
You can select your choice of pet portrait session (mini or full) on Power Pet Sitter when you make your appointment for pet sitting, dog walking, or boarding and pay for it with your regular service. John will work with your pet sitter outside of your home to capture your baby’s perfect angles. You will receive an email from John once he has the photographs ready, within a week, with a link to your private gallery and instructions on how to select your favorite photos.
Take a look at our gallery of John’s first portrait session with one of our good clients, Miss Gracie. He has captured her beauty and playfulness beautifully! Let us know what you think in the comments, below!
