About me

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 people who are crazy about their animals!

I create colourful fine art images of Calgary’s most loved pets and turn them into beautiful wall art, heirloom albums and personalized keepsakes for pet parents to treasure forever.

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 love, patience, quick reflexes, and an understanding of animal behaviour. (It’s not unlike photographing toddlers actually… ha!).

I also 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 clients faces!

Although my animal portraiture has earned multiple awards, what feeds my soul is giving back to the animals through volunteer work for various local (domestic and wildlife) animal rescue foundations. I enjoy giving back to the community by volunteering for animal related 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 am currently working on my contribution to an international dog photography project to raise funds for animal shelters. In 2023 I will begin photographing dogs all around YYC for the “Tails of Calgary” fundraising book project! (I’d love for you to participate – add your name to the Calgary Dog VIP list for first dibs)

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