Welcome from Pet Photographer Cynthia Wood to


We love our dogs and the feeling is mutual!

We don't need to see the science to know that the love hormone, oxytocin soars when we are gazing at our dogs and that nothing compares to the unconditional love we share. They are always there for us with their soggy kisses and muddy paws, smiling from ear to ear and helping us look on the bright side of life. One of my clients who adores his golden retriever said, “ I love my beautiful girl, Tieta and I will always cherish these everlasting memories."

My own beautiful goldendoodle, who was my inspiration for Pets We Love Photography was by my side for many wonderful years. He actually helped save my vision by summoning help when a toxic powder blew into my eyes. I brought him home when he was a playful puppy and held him in my arms as he took his final breath ten years later. I miss him so much!

As your pet photographer, I will create images that you will cherish; images that capture personality, as well as the wonderful relationship you share. Find out what people are saying about Pets We Love Photography, check out some FAQs or Book a Free Consultation. I can't wait to meet you and your best friend.

About the Pet Photographer



I'm Cynthia Wood, animal lover, award winning photographer, and owner of Pets We Love Photography, based in Collingwood and Toronto. Our pets have such a special place in our hearts and I am passionate about capturing everlasting memories of the love we share with them.

A little more about me….

  • I love chocolate…the darker, the better…I’m sure this is a weakness but it’s such a decadent one!!
  • I also love skiing, snowboarding, cycling and hiking, which is ample justification for indulging in this weakness.
  • I appreciate my association with Professional Photographers of Canada, which helps me create meaningful, high quality images for my clients.
  • My big, beautiful goldendoodle, Elijah, who was always by my side inspired me to start Pets We Love Photography. The poem I wrote for him when he was slipping away from me at the end of his life is here, if you'd like to read it. I miss him so much but Louis, my new ganaraskan puppy makes me smile every day….and I’m sure Elijah would approve of the happiness he has brought into my life.

When I worked as a nurse, I repeatedly heard how much people missed their dogs and cherished their photographs depicting the good times they shared. I feel that way when I see the image of Elijah looking up at a butterfly during our last walk together and I will always cherish the time we spent together that day. I can’t wait to capture meaningful images for you...images that will make you smile with joy or even bring a tear of overwhelming emotion every time you see them. Please peruse the sessions and choose the one that resonates with you and I will create your everlasting memories.

What else would you like to know?


It will be great if your dog is groomed a couple of weeks prior to the session or at whatever point you think he/she looks best!

I shoot on location, including parkland and homes in Toronto, Collingwood and in-between, and in my studio that is designed for pets, with flooring used in doggy daycares and a comfortable sitting area for you and your pet to enjoy treats and refreshments.

Absolutely. Pet photography is all great lighting and connecting with your pet to get the best shots.

Yes, I love capturing the special bond you share; these are the images you will cherish forever! We will discuss any special pet photography images you are envisioning, as well as clothing choices during the complimentary pre-shoot consultation.

Although it’s great if your dog knows some basic commands, the important thing is to capture his/her personality. The best approach is for you to relax!! I have the experience and expertise to connect with your dog upon meeting him/her, which enables me to capture the images that show his/her true personality.
