"Hi! I’m Arica Dorff and I’m a veteran pet photographer and pet painting artist. I was born in Japan, raised in Hawaii, and moved to Las Vegas to play softball for UNLV while earning my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. Shortly after college, I discovered my love for photography and opened a luxury pet & family photography studio. After nine successful years as Las Vegas’ top pet photographer with the most amazing employees and clients, I transitioned from studio photographer to traveling pet photographer.
Every fall, I offer portrait sessions around the country on my annual Pet Photography Road Trip. On a typical road trip, my dog and I will drive 12,000 miles through 30 states and shoot 45 family portrait sessions. My pup and I travel in our home on wheels - a Ford Transit campervan that I built out myself (with the help of a talented carpenter friend).
When I’m not shooting portrait sessions in the fall, I enjoy working remotely doing Pet Paintings. My Pet Paintings are created using state of the art digital painting software. Every inch of the digital canvas is hand-painted with thousands of meticulous brush strokes. Most of my Pet Paintings are created from clients cell phone images. I also create custom pet paintings for professional pet photographers wanting to offer painted images to their portrait clients."
