About Haute Dog Pet Photography

Who we are and why we're here

© Caroline Vaughn Photography

Hi, I'm Robyn

Full-time professional pet photographer.
Mom to 5 giant dogs and 2 actual horses.
Lifelong equestrian (reiner turned jumper).
St. Bernard fancier and dog show novice.
Lover of champagne and high heels.
I plan crazy Christmas cards with our pets a year in advance, could eat pasta for every meal, and have been married to my husband Adam for 10 years. Friends describe me as 'classy, sassy, and a bit bad-assy,' which comes through in the VIP service and boldly colorful portraits I love to create for our clients. I am a Certified Professional Photographer with more than two decades of experience working in animal training and behavior, training a range of animals from search and rescue, therapy work, obedience and show ring conformation, and a variety of equestrian disciplines. Before finding my true purpose photographing pets, I earned my Bachelor's in Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior and a Master's in Forensic Science. ​

I began photographing pets while attempting to create a piece of my heart dog that would live forever. I quickly realized that goal was shared by pet parents around the globe. Jake passed in August 2022, but his legacy will live forever in my heart and behind every photo I create for a client. With our dedication to quality, creativity, and compassionate service, we strive to make dogs and horses live forever for their people, bringing joy, comfort, and peace of mind to pet owners everywhere.

I preserve the legacies of your pets in memory of mine:
