Because it’s important to capture those special moments between you and your pooch, Urban Pooch has a built-in photo studio. We work with two professional pet photographers who can transform the love you share with your canine into amazing photographs.

We usually set up special photo sessions in anticipation of holidays and special events. Also, during our Halloween Party, we always have our photographer on hand to capture the amazing moments of our pooches and their parents!

Margaret and Albert are also available for in-home photo sessions according to your schedule. Please inquire via email – or (773) 942-6445.

Various packages available – please inquire at the front desk for details.

About Wetnoze Photography

Marge Hudson has been an animal lover and had a love of photography all her life. She started out at age 7, photographing her parakeet with an instamatic camera for fun. Throughout her life, she has always had at least one dog or cat, and has always kept up with the photography. She is from the Midwest originally, grew up in the Washington DC metropolitan area, and has lived in a number of places, from Florida to California to Milwaukee.

Fast forward to 2010, and Marge has settled in the Chicago Northshore with 3 wonderful dogs: Nikki, a 7-year-old German Shepherd/Golden Retriever mix; Shadow, a 4-year-old German Shepherd; and Knight, a 3-year-old German Shepherd. She was a wedding photographer for a while, and in 2002 she made her dream of being a pet photographer official when she opened Wetnoze Photography. Wetnoze Photography specializes in creating fine, formal portraits of pets and the people who love them, in the comfort of their own home. Marge’s favourite subjects are dogs and cats. She loves what she does and it shows in every photograph.

Albert Ellenich grew up on the shores of Lake Superior and developed an appreciation for nature at an early age. His artistic interests quickly focused on photography with the introduction of digital cameras, aiming his lens at broad landscapes and close up glimpses. Adding his love for family and dogs has created an ability to capture special moments in nature, families and pets in their natural environment.

Albert is available for photo sessions with you and your family, inclusive of two and four-legged members.
