animal lover extraordinaire

Heidi Grace Pet Portraiture is a full-service boutique pet photography business based in Calgary, Alberta Canada.

Hello I’m Heidi Grace!

I am crazy about my animals!  And you know who I like to work with? Other pet parents who are crazy about their animals!

I create colourful portraits of Calgary’s most loved pets and turn them into beautiful wall art, heirloom albums and personalized keepsakes for you to treasure.

I’m a Certified Professional Photographer who specializes in portraiture of pets and the families who love them. Helping you preserve memories of your furry best friend through quality artwork is my passion!

Photographing animals is not without its challenges; it requires technical know-how, love, patience, quick reflexes, and an understanding of animal behaviour. (It’s not unlike photographing toddlers actually… ha!).

I provide local businesses with wall art for offices, waiting rooms and patient rooms. I thrive in the creative process of planning and installing animal wall art pieces that bring joy and engage the customers at Veterinary Clinics, Animal Shelters, Law Firms and any place where businesses seek to put a smile on their staff and their client’s faces!

Although my animal portraiture has earned multiple awards, what feeds my soul is giving back to the animals through volunteer work for local animal rescues and charities. I photograph adoptable animals, fund-raise, donate to silent auctions and photograph events for rescue organizations. Don’t hesitate to contact me if your organization needs a professional pet photographer.

I’m thrilled to be the official Calgary photographer for the international dog photography project Tails of the World. We’re raising funds for local and international animal shelters through a heartwarming book project. I’d love for you and your dog to participate – just add your name to the insiders list for first dibs!

Heidi Grace Pet Portraiture is fully accredited, licensed and insured.

"Keeping a 16 week old puppy interested and engaged is hard, but Heidi managed to do just that - and in a way that was fun for the pup! She truly cares about her clients (both 2 and 4 legged) and it shows!"



I am passionate about what I do and I’m always eager to learn more. I participate in new photography workshops and courses every year. I have earned multiple National and Provincial awards for my portraits of pets and wildlife.


Accredited photographers possess the experience, knowledge and equipment to be considered a specialist in their chosen field. I have earned my photography accreditation in multiple specialties from the PPOC. 


I volunteer and support local animal rescue organizations. You will find me photographing adoptable pets that need homes, donating sessions/artwork to fundraisers and decorating shelters with animal wall art.
