Why Beyond the Fence?

Beyond the Fence is about dogs being dogs – running, playing, sometimes rolling in the mud, and always wagging tails. We believe that our photography adventures should be fun for the dogs, which means all of our photography sessions take place outdoors where dogs can explore and just be themselves. Whether your dog loves running on the beach, climbing mountains, or strolling through the city, we’ll plan the perfect adventure for you and your dog.

Because there’s an amazing world out there and no better way to explore it than with your dog.

Based in Boston, MA, Beyond the Fence photographs dogs in natural landscapes throughout Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine and in select travel locations.

We believe

Every Dog is An

Adventure Dog

If you could freeze one moment in time, what would that moment be?

Would it be watching your dog race down the beach at sunrise? Or seeing your dog ahead of you on the trail as the mountains come into view? Or would it be a quiet moment in the park, a moment just for you and your dog?

Choose your dog’s  adventure, and we’ll help you plan all the details.

What if?

The photography is beautiful, but what if?

  • What if your dog can’t be off-leash?
  • What if your dog is reactive?
  • What if you and your dog aren’t experienced hikers?
  • What if your dog is terminally ill?

We have adventure options for every dog!

Every portrait session is customized to fit your dog’s individual needs. If your dog needs to be on a leash, I’m able to edit the leash out of the final portraits. If your dog is happier exploring somewhere away from other people and dogs, I know just the place! If you and your dog prefer somewhere that doesn’t require a lot of walking, I can plan an adventure for you too.

Lola

Lola is often nervous around new people, so I was worried this would be the case during her photo session. Instead, it was the complete opposite! Blue was so calm and patient that Lola immediately felt comfortable and had so much fun. I’ve never seen her warm up to someone so quickly!

 Wash, Percy, and Frankie's adventure brought us into the woods, a place of trees and streams and pine needle covered trails. Their portraits were a Christmas gift for their family. I love the idea of portraits as a gift! The artwork in your home - something that you...
