Hi, my name is Kira Stackhouse and I’m an SF Bay Area animal and pet photographer. Foster Pet Photos is a growing collection of adoptable animal portraits – all foster animals.
A photo speaks a thousand words, and a rescue animal’s adoption photo can mean the difference between life and death. Many rescue organizations with permanent shelters have in-house photographers and volunteer photographers who visit to photograph adoptable animals (myself included), but many animals who are living in foster homes are often overlooked.
This site is a way for me to document all of the foster animals I’ve photographed, a way to catalog, celebrate and share the generosity of many people who have opened their hearts and homes to caring for rescue animals.
I started this program because I recently moved into a new photo studio, and I wanted to figure out a way to continue to help rescue animals. It made more sense to me to schedule adoption photoshoots individually with foster parents rather than set a planned time/date/location, and so far it has been working out great. I offer complimentary adoption photo sessions to all foster animals in the Bay Area.
This is a very exciting new way for me to stay connected to the rescue community and to keep volunteering and giving back. So if you are an animal foster parent or know someone who is, send them my way!
As I mention, ALL PETS WELCOME. I really mean it – everyone is welcome… dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, frogs, rats, hamsters, bunnies, any animal that will fit into the freight elevator… I love them all – surprise me!
