Hello! I am Melissa Bonar. I take great pride in being a pet portrait artist. My family has happily made our forever home in Gallatin, Tennessee, where I am always finding artistic inspiration for creating a breathtaking look in photographs. Serving my clients is what fills my heart with joy.


I specialize in beautiful custom wall art for your home and timeless albums showcasing  heirloom quality pet portraits. There is nothing better than delivering custom portraits and albums that you can display in your home forever.


Every pet can be photographed with me. I have extensive experience and over a decade of animal training. With these combined skills you are definitely going to be amazed at the beautiful artwork we can create together. I take pride in providing a full-service luxury experience like no other for your pets, all while creating  enchanting memories you will never forget.


My photographs have been in several competitions, including the International Pet Photographers competition where my work made the top 100 and top 25 shortlists with several of my images.

     Now reserving 2021 sessions. A portrait session with me is a truly heartwarming experience. I make every effort to respond promptly to inquiries during business hours. I except a limited number of commissions each month to ensure my attention to detail to each one of my sessions.

This sounds great! Let's get started!

Success! Message received.
