Hello, and welcome to Petstar Photography

Adelaide Pet Photographer

Welcome, my name is Karen Faure and I am the owner and founder of Petstar Photography. I'm an Adelaide based family pet photographer who specialises in professional images showcasing pets with or without their people.

Having worked within the photographic industry since 2001, the passion I have for photography and my love of animals have fused together to bring you Petstar Photography.

Families come in all shapes and sizes and never before have pets played a more important part in the family, especially amidst these ever changing times. My mission is capturing the best possible images on the day of your photo shoot for you to cherish for many years to come.

Your photography session is all about capturing the essence of your pets' unique characters and individual personalities, at a desired location of your choice.

"Wow these are fantastic, I think you really captured some nice natural shots of our dogs which really show off their personalities". 

( Customer Testimonial by Bonnie Tomlin )

I understand the patience needed when working with your furry friends and encourage the session to be at a location where your pet is most comfortable. Your dog doesn't have to be a top-dog supermodel as I have plenty of patience and tricks on hand. I work with natural light and if you are unsure of where to have your photo session, there is no need to worry as I know of lots of great locations in and around Adelaide.

Since establishing Petstar Photography back in 2014, I have photographed hundreds of pets in Adelaide for my individual clients, and at countless pet related events. My photo sessions have included many local pet related businesses, numerous pet rescue and charity groups. I'm proud to have been a prize winner in various local photographic competitions for some of my 'Petstar' images. My work has also been showcased and featured in some of the below mentioned magazines and pet related businesses over the years.

I look forward to having a chat with you, to discuss what kind of amazing moments and images we can arrange to capture for you.

“What can I say about Petstar? I shopped around for a photographer that would help me to truly capture the personality of my dog Kato. Karen took the time to get to know me and my dog way before the camera came out. Highly professional, modern and most aesthetically appealing animal photography I've seen in Adelaide.”

“We had such a wonderful experience having a family photo shoot with our three boxer dogs. Karen was extremely professional, patient and friendly with our fur babies and captured such stunning shots. We couldn't be happier with our photos. Special memories that we we will treasure always. We can't wait to do it again. Highly recommend.”

“Pics are fantastic! So relaxed, natural and comfortable for both pet and owner. Karen is patient and caring and aims to get the theme of shots you want”
