WELCOME TO PRIMA PHOTOGRAPHICS

Prima means first or leading, it indicates the most important performer or role - to us that is our pets and they come first! Prima Photographics is the premier pet portrait and design experience serving Phoenix/Scottsdale AZ and abroad.

We offer a luxury pet portrait session to photograph your pet(s). Your pet’s people are welcome to join in the photos too! After your pet's portrait session we will meet again for your Premiere Ordering Session to choose from our collections of heirloom quality wall art and portrait products to display and cherish your pet's keepsake images.

We also offer event coverage such as ringside photography at select dog shows, animal events, and competition venues. 

Our design services for the competitive dog fancy include: custom advertisements for magazine or online publication, breeder or handler logos business cards and websites, stud dog cards, etc.

JUST A DOG

From time to time people tell me, “Lighten up, it’s just a dog,” or “That’s a lot of money for just a dog.”

They don’t understand the distance traveled, time spent, or costs involved for “Just a dog.” Some of my proudest moments have come about with “Just a dog.” Many hours have passed with my only company being “Just a dog,” and not once have I felt slighted. Some of my saddest moments were brought about by “Just a dog.” In those days of darkness, the gentle touch of “Just a dog” provided comfort and purpose to overcome the day.

If you, too, think it’s “Just a dog,” you will probably understand phrases like “just a friend,” “just a sunrise,” or “just a promise.” “Just a dog” brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy. “Just a dog” brings out the compassion and patience that makes me a better person. Because of “Just a dog” I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.

For me and folks like me, it’s not “Just a dog.” It’s an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment. “Just a dog” brings out what’s good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.

I hope that someday people can understand it’s not “Just the dog.” It’s the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being “Just a man” or “just a woman.”

So next time you hear the phrase “Just a dog,” smile, because they “just don’t understand.”

Our pets are not “just animals” they are family to us, and we want to display and cherish stunning artworks with them not only included but featured! We understand and agree that preserving these memories with our "fur kids" is a milestone and a must.

ADOPT OR SHOP RESPONSIBLY

You will see a variety of purebreds, mixed breeds, registered and unregistered, show animals, sport competitors, lap dogs, running partners, couch potatoes, and other varieties of pets from all walks of life featured by us. These are our client's beloved family members, it matters not if they came from a shelter, a breeder, an alley way or are pedigreed or not. We make no discrimination on our client's pets!

Since we participate in dog sports and have our own reputable breeding program of purebred AKC Doberman Pinschers ourselves, we wanted to take a moment to explain our support of responsible adoption/rescue and reputable breeding practices. A responsible rescue will be dedicated to finding loving well-matched homes for the pets that are surrendered and abandoned to them. A reputable breeder is dedicated to the preservation and improvement of their breed through: full health testing on breeding animals, competitive titling, limited well planned breedings, enriching home environment and raising of offspring, screening of buyers, and ongoing support for the life of the animal’s they produce.

There is no shame or glory in either, it comes down to what fits for you and that the rescue or breeder are ethical and responsible in their respective field.

A pet is another family member so it is a very personal decision and big commitment where you will go. While we make no judgment or discrimination of our client’s cherished family members, we highly encourage each person to do full research and support a reputable source.
