Welcome to Kelly J. Russo Photography

I have been privileged to photograph many beautiful dogs, horses, and families to create authentic and expressive artwork that will be loved for a lifetime.


Take a stroll through my gallery to see more.


But my dog won't sit still...


It's totally ok! I successfully photography hyper dogs ALL the time! I have a deep well of crazy noises and duck calls to help get their attention. Here's a secret: most of the dogs you see here on my website were wearing leashes during their photo session! Leashes keep your best friend safe and with a little photoshop magic, will be removed to create beautiful art.

I can already tell this is the start of something great!


Ready to start planning your photo session or just have a few questions?


I did not hesitate to spend money on photography since I have done so in the past and know how worthwhile it is to have photos professionally done. I enjoyed witnessing how the photographer and her assistant worked with my horse to get the best possible poses. I love the photos that Kelly did and included my favorite on our Xmas card that we mail out to friends and family all over the US and abroad.

Kelly and her husband were very easy to work with and made the experience as low stress as possible. We are definitely planning to have more pictures taken by Kelly in the future. I feel like this was money well spent. The photos turned out fantastic!

Kelly is such an amazingly talented and creative photographer. Her love and knowledge of animals is evident in her reactions with our dogs and getting them to be calm in order to capture the best pictures of them. The hardest part was deciding which picture was our favorite since they are all so amazing!
