"I can't say enough good things about Alicia and her amazing talent! If I could rate her extra stars I would in a heart beat!
I have been looking around for a pet photographer for a while for my 11 year old border collie mix. It was really important to me to get some beautiful photos of him that truly captured his lively spirit and unique personality. I looked around quite a bit, and Frame Your Pet stood out from every other photographer I looked at.
Each photo was so unique and so special that I had a really difficult time choosing which ones I wanted to order (ideally, I want all of them, but I don't have that much wall space haha). Alicia was super helpful during this process too, helping me select the best photos for where I wanted to hang them, the best sizes, and the best materials to get the look I was seeking to achieve.
I don't even think this review can accurately describe how immensely grateful I am for Alicia and her incredible talent. She is a wonderful person and a fantastic artist. I cannot recommend her highly enough. THANK YOU ALICIA for everything you did for us!!"
"Alicia is such a blessing! I wanted to capture my senior little guy and his precious expressions before they changed. When I saw Alicia's photography I was immediately impressed by her skill and artistry. Alicia went above and beyond to take beautiful photos on a time crunch. I cannot say enough about her kindness, professionalism, and talent!"
"I was looking for a photographer that takes gorgeous pet pictures to give as a present for my husband for his birthday. He loves photography and I knew I needed someone who does exceptional work in order for him to be satisfied. Our older dog is starting to slow down a lot and I really wanted to get some pictures of him for us to have. Alicia was great to work with. She took the time before our shoot to ask lots of questions about our dogs. The pictures turned out just perfect - she really captured both of our pups personalities and the pictures are something we will treasure forever."
"Alicia is the best! She is such a sweetheart and very professional.
Barkbox hosted a birthday party at NKLA for my dog's birthday party, but the evening was also to benefit Best Friends Animal Society. Since this was going to be an event, we needed a professional photographer. I had spoken to Alicia in the past, but she lived and did her business in SF. A week before Tuna's birthday, I found out that she had moved to LA, so we contacted her to see if she wanted to be the photographer for the party. Not only did she accept, but she volunteered her time!! She even offered to give the proceeds of her work, if any of the photography sold online, to BFAS. What a gift that was! She sent me a link that same night with a ton of lovely photos! Her work is amazing.
The following week, she came over to my place to take additional photos of Tuna for campaign for charity. She showed up with all of her equipment, on time and even sent me a prep list of how to prepare before she arrived, which was very helpful.
I loved working with her and I plan to do it again in the future. She comes very recommended!"

"Working with Alicia has been the best experience my husband and I have ever had with a photographer. One thing specifically that separates her from the rest is her attention to detail. She is very professional and talented while maintaining a genuinely positive demeanor throughout. We described what kind of photos we were hoping to achieve and she went above and beyond our expectations. We now have beautiful pieces of art to display in our home forever. She did a wonderful job of capturing our fur-children and their personalities. I teared up while watching the photo slideshow because it was so touching to see our love as a family emanating through every single photo. These photos are so special to my husband and I. I can not say enough good things about our experience with Alicia."
"Alicia did a phenomenal job with my dog, Miller's photos. She knew exactly how to capture the landscape along with my dog's personality. Not only that but she turned around the photo files in the same day, remarkably fast. My dog instantly bonded with her and felt comfortable playing and being himself around her. She was also really flexible with scheduling and communicating as well. I have never had my dog photographed before, but without a doubt if I did it again I would hire Alicia.
She was amazing. I really can't say enough about her."
"I don't even know where to start with the pure talent!!!
I met Alicia at the 145th Anniversary celebration for the San Francisco SPCA and Alicia generously offered to lend a hand and give our volunteers tips and tricks to getting their best shot. I had no idea at that time how much impact she would soon have.
Working with Alicia on our first photo shoot I realized she was the REAL DEAL. Her photos are hands down the best I have ever seen! She is very engaging, vivacious, flexible and tenacious-- all things necessary for photoing animals!
We noticed an immediate response to the new and improved photos and there is no question Alicia has saved lives with her photos!
Look no further. If you want the best of the best, you have found her"

"When you consider your pets your children like I do, there is nothing better than having amazing photographs of them to treasure and share. Thanks to Alicia, I have the most spectacular, not to mention artistic pictures of my two boys (Sphynx cats).
She really has an artistic eye and your pics will not just be run of the mill portraits of your pet.
She was super laid back, down to earth and easy to work with. She was very patient which helped my boys remain calm and act more natural in their own environment.
I really felt like she loved them which helped the whole experience be a positive one. Not to mention how speedy I got my pictures.
I would highly recommend Alicia to anyone, you will not be disappointed."
"Alicia is very professional, fun and easy to work with. She is a great listener and offered up suggestions and tips about the session during our pre-shoot consultation a week before the actual shoot. I had expressed my desire that I'd love to have my pup shoot with his littermate, and she was open to the idea as well so we were able to add that in by upgrading our package! I know how hard it is to take photos of just ONE pup, so I could only imagine how hard it would be to be shooting photos of TWO!
I would highly recommend Alicia and Frame Your Pet if you want beautiful photos of your furry family member.
Thanks again Alicia for such a fun photo-shoot!"
Thank you very much for photographing Akame. This dog seems like it was born to be a princess... you did a wonderful job, it really is amazing.
I don´t have enough adjectives to describe the work you did with Akame, to me, it's just professional (in all aspects).
A big kiss... And again THANK YOU"

"Alicia took great natural photos of our Siberian cats- Boris and Milla. The cats really took to her, which is usually hit or miss with other people. The photo session was quick and she took great photos of them as they moved around the apartment in their natural setting taking photos of them from ground level and the cats POV. Nothing was staged, which is great. The cats looked beautiful in the shots. We would recommend Frame Your Pet if you are looking to treat yourself to beautiful photography of your pet"
"Alicia is truly amazing. I reached out to her after learning that my dog Harry, my best friend in the world, had less than two months to live. While I didn't wholeheartedly believe the vet's diagnosis, I realized that our time together was nearing an end and I wanted great photos to remember him by. Because I knew these would likely be Harry's last photos, I was very selective about the photographer I chose. While I looked at other photographers, I am so happy I went with Alicia. Alicia was great with Harry and my other senior dog, Elly! She took extra time to make sure they were comfortable and never pushed them to be more active than they could be. Alicia was able to capture Harry and Elly looking strong, happy and playful - no easy feat with two black, 13+ year old dogs.
One week after our photo session, Harry passed away. The pictures Alicia took are absolutely priceless to me. On top of taking fabulous pictures, Alicia was so compassionate and supportive about Harry's illness and passing. If you are looking for a photographer that can truly connect with both you and your animal, I highly recommend contacting Alicia!"
"My dog is very important in my life and I wanted to honor her with a professional photo session.
My idea was to print the photos and decorate my living room with some photos of Maui (that's my girl!). I've checked other pet photographers in SF but I was looking for something different... and then I stumbled upon Frame Your Pet. It was exactly was I was looking for!
Alicia not only captured Maui's personality, she also made the shoot a really good time. The experience was amazing and now I have a beautiful collection of candid shots.
The quality of the photos is outstanding and what I like best is that the photos make me admire even more how special and unique my dog is. I knew she was pretty but now I can show her off with the art wall I made out of the pictures I purchased.
I couldn't be happier!"
