Find out what our loyal customers are saying about Patrick Nau Pet Photography.

Patrick did a wonderful job photographing my very curious and energetic dog. He kept her engaged and captured her personality perfectly while making sure she stayed still at the same time. I’ll definitely be going back and would recommend him to my friends and family. Thank you for the great experience!
Briana Eruren

He is so very kind and full of compassion when it comes to your pets final days. I am so glad and very grateful he got us in the day before she passed. I highly recommend him.

Do You Have Any Questions?

At Patrick Nau Pet Photography in Richfield MN, we believe that the best portraits of you or your loved ones (pets included) are created when everyone feels comfortable and relaxed! That’s why we’ve put together a list of frequently asked questions to help you feel at ease during your photography session and ensure that we capture the happiest and most beautiful moments of your life.

Why now? I’d rather wait.

Patrick encourages pet owners not to wait, as all too often he hears the regretful phrase, “I wish had take photos with my pet.”

Life without a beloved pet can be indescribably difficult, and we never know how much time we have with them due to accidents, illness, or age. By capturing the adorable moments of our furry friends, from their puppy faces to their old and wise eyes, we can preserve their memories forever. So, don’t wait for the perfect moment or weather; seize the opportunity now and be the one saying, “I’m glad I did!”

Is my dog too old to sit for photos?

No, your dog is never too old for photos! Age should never be a barrier to capturing the memories and unique personality of your furry companion. Even senior dogs can still enjoy posing for photos, and their seasoned looks can create some of the most beautiful and meaningful images. However, it is important to consider your dog’s comfort and mobility when scheduling a photo session, and be patient and understanding if they need to take breaks or move at a slower pace.

My dog will never sit still; you’ll never be able to photograph them!

Patrick’s clients choose him for pet photography precisely because of his expertise in capturing the perfect shot, even with the most energetic and playful pets. Just one look at his impressive portfolio will show you why! While some dogs may sit still for the camera, more often than not, they can get easily distracted and start wiggling around. Fortunately, Pat’s 35 years of professional experience have allowed him to develop unique techniques and split-second timing to capture even the most fleeting moments of our furry friends. And with more than 1000 pets photographed, his techniques have never failed to produce stunning results.

Can you photograph children and dogs?


Photos of children and their dogs can make for some of the most heartwarming and memorable images. When planning a photo session with both children and dogs, it’s important to work with a photographer who has experience with both subjects, and who can create a safe and comfortable environment for both the child and the pet. With 35 years of experience, there isn’t a more experienced children and dogs photographer in Minneapolis MN.
