Horse, dog, and pet portrait photographer, Kate Lussier.

With a background in both professional horse and dog training, Kate is a subject matter expert in animal photography. A strong knowledge of animal confirmation, breed standards, characteristics, and behavior allow her to expertly capture your animal’s spirit and aesthetics. Kate's love for photography, nature, animals and hunting have led her to focus her efforts in these genres.

Horse Experience

Kate has been an avid horse lover since she was a youngster. She began saddleseat riding lessons at the age of five at an Arabian farm and has since had experience across many different riding disciplines. As a teenager and young adult Kate worked at a Dressage facility as a working student. During this time, she trained and competed successfully on a Regional level with a Westphalian German Riding pony, schooling through fourth level movements. Later in life she purchased, saddle broke, and showed a young Morgan in the Classic and Pleasure divisions at “A” rated Morgan shows. These experiences in varying disciplines rounds her eye out for the beauty in all horses.

Dog Experience

A dog enthusiast from the beginning Kate has always been excited about different dog breeds and now has four of her own Labrador Retrievers. From breeding a litter of puppies to professional obedience training Kate is well versed in different areas of dog handling. In her free time, Kate enjoys field training and upland hunting with her labs. From a portrait of a beloved lap dog to capturing the boldness of a dog in from a retrieve or the intensity of a point; Kate can capture the heart and soul of your dog in images that will last a lifetime. 

Kate is available for private photo shoots, commercial photography, and photographing full day hunting excursions or guided hunts.

Located in the Northeast corner of Connecticut, Kate travels to shoot on location throughout Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

My Mission as a Photographer & Goal for Your Photo Shoot

My mission as a photographer is to capture the true spirit of the moment, and loving bond between you and your animals. From that perfect dog head tilt to the instant your horse pins their ears; I shoot to capture their true personality and beauty. Horses, dogs, and the outdoors are what inspire me; and I dedicate my photographic journey to creating lasting images from their magnificence.

My goal is to then help you choose from these images and select high quality products that can proudly be displayed in your home, office, farm, or kennel. These high-quality photographic products are durable, long lasting, and showcase the images in their best light.
