It takes a special kind of artist to really find the essence of their subject, whether it’s a person, a landscape, or an animal.

Ann O’Neill is a professional dog photographer in Texas and her work is really amazing.

She captures the personalities of these lovable pooches in very unique ways and the proof is in the beautiful photos that you’re about to see.

O’Neill says, “As a photographer who specializes in fine art dog portraits, it is my job to capture my subjectโ€™s beauty and grace.”

Let’s take a look at her work. We know you’re gonna love it.

1. A curious pup.

I love that tongue just hanging out there.

Hope everyone is hanging in there and not going too stir crazy. This pandemic has thrown us all into uncharted territory. At least we know that our dogs are happy to have us home, spending more time with them. They certainly are a constant source of joy in these uncertain times. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿพโค๏ธ I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. * * * * #austindogphotographer #austinpetphotographer #atxphotographer #dogphotographer #petphotographer #certifiedprofessionalphotographer #plantpoweredphotographer #crueltyfree #greenphotographer #Ecofriendlyphotographer #ecodog #austindogs #austintxdogs #ATXdogs #paulcbuff #einstein640 #digibee #canonusa #goofydog #tongueout #hanginthere #staysafe #stayhome

2. Three of a kind…

Well, sort of…

3. He looks kind of indifferent.

But what a face on this dog!

Feeling a little blah? Looking for things to do while social distancing? This is the perfect time to work with your dog to learn new skills and master that sit/stay! They will love the attention and you will love the results.

4. Patsy the Boxer.

Standing proud and tall.

A Sneak Peek of the adorable Patsy! Patsy is a 5-year-old Boxer with cheeks you just have to squish! ๐Ÿค— After her owner passed away, Patsy found herself alone. She was then adopted from Austin Boxer Rescue by her new mom, who had recently lost her 8-year-old Boxer to cancer. The two have been helping each other through their losses and creating new bonds. ๐Ÿ’• Patsy is a very special girl, who also happens to be deaf, but that didn't stop her from doing an awesome job in the studio; she delivered lots of kisses and some irresistible expressions. Just look at that face!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿพ * * * * * * * #austindogphotographer #austinpetphotographer #atxphotographer #dogphotographer #petphotographer #masterphotographer #fineartdogphotographer #certifiedprofessionalphotographer #awardwinningphotographer #ppamasterphotographer #plantpoweredphotographer #crueltyfree #greenphotographer #Ecofriendlyphotographer #ecodog #austindogs #austintxdogs #ATXdogs #Sneakpeek #dogphotoshoot #paulcbuff #einstein640 #digibee #canonusa #rescuedog #boxer #boxersofinstagram #deafdog #deafdogsrock

5. This is a great one.

Very regal, there’s no doubt about that.

A Sneak Peek of the gorgeous Echo and Faith! These are two remarkable dogs; both are deaf, and Faith is also blind! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Nevertheless, that doesnโ€™t hold either of them back, since they are both therapy dogs as well. Echo knows sign language, while Faith responds to touch commands. Faith may not have use of two of her senses, but I can confirm that her sense of smell is in no way diminished – she was able to track where the treats were at all times! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿพโค๏ธ * * * * * * * #austindogphotographer #austinpetphotographer #atxphotographer #dogphotographer #petphotographer #certifiedprofessionalphotographer #plantpoweredphotographer #crueltyfree #greenphotographer #Ecofriendlyphotographer #ecodog #austindogs #austintxdogs #ATXdogs #Sneakpeek #dogphotoshoot #paulcbuff #einstein640 #digibee #canonusa #seniordogs #greatdanes #greatdanesofinstagram #deafdogs #blinddogs #deafdogsrock

6. What an adorable senior dog.

She’s seen a lot in her 15 years.

A Sneak Peek of the adorable senior mother and son duo, Dulces and Bud! Dulces is a 15-year-old Corgi mix and her Son Bud is 12-years-old. These two cuties were not sure what all this studio stuff was about, but they enjoyed the treats and went along with the game anyway.๐Ÿ™ƒ ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’• * * * * * * * * #austindogphotographer #austinpetphotographer #atxphotographer #dogphotographer #petphotographer #certifiedprofessionalphotographer #plantpoweredphotographer #crueltyfree #greenphotographer #Ecofriendlyphotographer #ecodog #austindogs #austintxdogs #ATXdogs #Sneakpeek #dogphotoshoot #paulcbuff #einstein640 #digibee #canonusa #corgimix #seniordogs #seniordogsrock #corgimixesofinstagram

7. A real sweetheart.

Just look at that mug!

A Sneak Peek of the darling Major! Major is a 13-year-old Shih Tzu and a MAJOR sweetheart. ๐Ÿค— He was taken in by his new mom, after his mate had passed away and his family of 13 years decided to re-home him. ๐Ÿ˜ข I will never understand how someone could do that to a senior dog, or any dog, but I am very glad that he is now with someone that appreciates him and will give him all the love he deserves. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’• * * * * * * * * #austindogphotographer #austinpetphotographer #atxphotographer #dogphotographer #petphotographer #certifiedprofessionalphotographer #plantpoweredphotographer #crueltyfree #greenphotographer #Ecofriendlyphotographer #ecodog #austindogs #austintxdogs #ATXdogs #Sneakpeek #dogphotoshoot #paulcbuff #einstein640 #digibee #canonusa #shihtzu #shitzusofinstagram #seniordog

8. Pugs are always hilarious.

And they’re very smart, as well!

A Sneak Peek of the adorable Goji and Charlie! At 9 and 6 years old, these two pugs were more like cheeky puppies. Goji started off a little shy, but the yummy treats won out and he soon focused his attention on getting moreโ€ฆand sometimes my fingers got in the way of that! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’• * * * * * * * * #austindogphotographer #austinpetphotographer #atxphotographer #dogphotographer #petphotographer #certifiedprofessionalphotographer #plantpoweredphotographer #crueltyfree #greenphotographer #Ecofriendlyphotographer #ecodog #austindogs #austintxdogs #ATXdogs #Sneakpeek #dogphotoshoot #paulcbuff #einstein640 #digibee #canonusa #rescuedogs #pug #pugs #pugsofinstagram #cutepugs

9. Built like a tank.

Sticking out their tongue at us!

A Sneak Peek of the adorable Katara! Great way to start the New Year with this adorable 8-month-old Exotic Bully. Katara is a compact little tank, who has quite the cheeky personality and was such fun to have in the studio. Katara had a different idea of how things should work and thought one treat per shot was a fair working agreement, so we went through the treats pretty quickly! ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’• * * * * * * * * #austindogphotographer #austinpetphotographer #atxphotographer #dogphotographer #petphotographer #certifiedprofessionalphotographer #plantpoweredphotographer #crueltyfree #greenphotographer #Ecofriendlyphotographer #ecodog #austindogs #austintxdogs #ATXdogs #Sneakpeek #dogphotoshoot #paulcbuff #einstein640 #digibee #canonusa #exoticbully #exoticbullies #bullybreed #bullies #bulliesofinstagram

10. Say hi to the people!

Trooper! I love that name.

View this post on Instagram

A Sneak Peek of adorable Trooper! Trooper is a 5-year-old Pit Bull mix who was so fun to have in the studio. Trooper was rescued through APA after surviving being hit by a car and he had scars that the vet suggested may have been from a cougar! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ He is one tough cutie pie, which is how he got the name Trooper. ๐Ÿ˜Š What personality! As soon as I introduced the treats, his attention never left me and he seemed to just have a great time in the studio. He is one solid boy and yet so agile. He did some moves that just made me laugh out loud and he sent the furniture skidding when he would exuberantly jump up on it for his photos. ๐Ÿ˜‚โค๏ธ๐Ÿพ * * * * * * * * #greenpawsphotography #austindogphotographer #austinpetphotographer #atxphotographer #dogphotographer #petphotographer #certifiedprofessionalphotographer #vegandogphotographer #plantpoweredphotographer #crueltyfree #greenphotographer #greendogphotographer #Ecofriendlyphotographer #ecodog #austindogs #austintxdogs #ATXdogs #Sneakpeek #dogphotoshoot #rescuedog #pitbull #pittie #pitbullsofinstagram #pitmix #survivor #austinpetsalive #paulcbuff #einstein640 #digibee

11. What a gorgeous dog!

A real beauty.

View this post on Instagram

A Sneak Peek of the gorgeous Rhett! Rhett is a one-year-old Blue Heeler and quite the stunning boy! ๐Ÿ˜ Rhett got so comfortable in the studio, that he curled up in the chair he was posing in and closed his beautiful blue eyes for a quick nap. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ด Rhett is pretty intuitive; even though he is deaf, his mom is able to easily communicate with him using American Sign Language. Being deaf certainly didnโ€™t hold him back from being a complete natural at the whole dog modeling thing either! โค๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿพ * * * * * * * * #greenpawsphotography #austindogphotographer #austinpetphotographer #atxphotographer #dogphotographer #petphotographer #certifiedprofessionalphotographer #vegandogphotographer #plantpoweredphotographer #crueltyfree #greenphotographer # #ecodog #austindogs #austintxdogs #ATXdogs #Sneakpeek #dogphotoshoot #rescuedog #heeler #blueheeler #australiancattledog #deafdog #asl #americansignlanguage #deafdogsofinstagram #paulcbuff #einstein640 #digibee #canonusa

12. All dressed up and ready to hit the town.

Liam the “Chorkie” has quite the personality.

A Sneak Peek of the tiny Liam! This 4-pound cutie is a 3-year-old Chorkie (Chihuahua/Yorkie). Liam is quite the little character; outgoing, energetic, and surprisingly agile for his tiny size. This rambunctious little darling had too much energy to be sitting around, so for most of his session he is standing. ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ๐Ÿ™ƒ #greenpawsphotography #austindogphotographer #austinpetphotographer #atxphotographer #dogphotographer #petphotographer #certifiedprofessionalphotographer #vegandogphotographer #plantpoweredphotographer #crueltyfree #greenphotographer #greendogphotographer #Ecofriendlyphotographer #ecodog #austindogs #austintxdogs #ATXdogs #Sneakpeek #dogphotoshoot #chihuahua #yorkie #chorkie #chihuahuayorkie #chorkiesofinstagram
