Pet and Family Photography in Sonoma County

Kind Words


Victoria has an amazing ability to capture the joyful essence of our rescue dogs, regardless of how difficult their past may have been. People immediately connect with the dogs through her photographs, and we have seen a measurable increase in adoption inquiries as a result. Victoria has a huge heart, and she’s as nice as she is talented. We feel so grateful that she chose to help our dogs who are in need of loving homes.

Victoria von Thal is about the easiest, and yet most talented graphic artist/photographer I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with over my long (40+ year) career. Despite the lighting difficulties of shooting live theater, Vicky’s work is consistently superior. And from the photo shoot beginning to the final product, she has given us the highest quality graphics, earning accolades from both within and outside our organization. Listening carefully to the needs of each director, she works tirelessly on every detail to guarantee their satisfaction and ours. Vicky is a find!

Victoria has been nothing but professional, helpful and loving with the animals here at our shelter. Her kindness radiates when you meet her, and her calmness really brings out the best in the animals she photographs. We are constantly in awe of her photos and her ability to capture the true personality of the dog, and her photos have engaged adopters so much, that they come meet and adopt our dogs. If you are looking for someone who can take beautiful photos of your animals, you will not be disappointed with Victoria.

In working with a web developer, I’m very particular in what I want and how I want things to look. This is why I love working with Victoria. She is talented, has a special touch, is easy to work with, and is willing to try new things. On top of all this, she is patient and understanding. I don’t know if there are developers more talented than Victoria, but I know that I only want to work with her. If I could hire Victoria full time so she would just work with us, I would.
