About Us

Keefe Tay | Sydney Pet Photographer 

Hi there! We are the faces behind Furry Munchkins Pet Photography: Keefe, Joshua, Mavis and our furkids, Chai, Thyme, Evan and Ollie! We are Dog and Cat Photographers based in the beautiful North Shore of Sydney and have been helping pet parents capture memories and create beautiful and timeless artwork of their furkids for the past 5 years. 

Really, this story is not about us. Rather, it is about you and your furry loved one. You can think of us a bit like your guide who will help you get what you're after. 

As pet parents ourselves, we know just how important your cat or dog means to you. We care about people and their pets and are passionate about serving pet families. 

We are dedicated to serving people who share these beliefs:

1) Your furry loved ones are part of the family and "Family is Number One!"

Like you, we see our cats and dogs as a crucial part of our family. We call them our furry loved ones because they mean so much to us. We are intensely proud of the relationship we have built up over time that involves a lot of hard work, discipline, love, and respect. 

The problem? We can't quite put into words just how much our family means to us. Not everyone understands how a relationship with your dog/cat can be so important. 

Your family's portraits by us will showcase this unique bond you've fostered with your furkid. Everyone who steps into your home will immediately know that family is the most important thing to you. Of which, your furkid is a huge part of it. They will see the way your furkid looks at you - with trust, respect, and affection.

2) Our pets changed our lives for the best. We want to make sure that we care and love them in the best way possible

 Like you, our pets literally changed our lives. We look at them with delight, joy and wonder. Our animals made us better, happier and even healthier people (all those walks in the morning!) 

Sometimes, we think we're just a little bit "crazy". Look at us talking to our cats like they are humans. But, over time, we've begun to speak their language and vice versa. We tell us how much we love them through our actions and speech.    

Our photos of your beautiful pets will show you and others that you're not crazy at all! These photos showcase a connection between human and animal that many others would dream of having.

3) We value photography of our furry loved ones as a way to capture happy memories of them that will last a lifetime.

Like you, we've at some point, worried about or experienced gone through the loss of a furry loved one. My first dog was a beautiful Golden Retriever named Ginger. She was the first family member to show me how to truly love and care for other animals. Ginger was one of the best parts of our family and brought immense love and joy to everyone she met.

Months after Ginger had left us, I still look back at the photos taken of her with fondness and love. My only regret is not hiring a professional pet photographer to help me capture photos that depicted the special connection we shared.

 

 Today, we help people capture the best memories they have with their furry loved ones and create timeless artwork of themThrough these beautiful keepsakes, your pet will be kept in your hearts forever.

4) We don't want our pets to be stressed. We value professionals who know how to work with animals in a fun and natural way.

 

Like you, we hate to see our cats and dogs stressed, upset and anxious. Whether it be bringing them to the vets, groomers or even to the dog park, we want them to enjoy the experience.  The main concern we get from people who want to book a pet photo session with us is that they and their pets won't enjoy it. But, they always end up saying after our photo shoot, "I don't think my cat or dog had so much fun before".

Ensuring that you and your pet is happy before, during and after our photo session is the single most important thing in Furry Munchkins Pet Photography. Whether this means we need to give them lots of time to warm up to us prior to the shoot, we'll do so in a fun, relaxing and comfortable way that show off their true personalities and relationship with you.

My team and I all have undergone training to understand cat and dog behaviour. We are easygoing and have a unique ability to build a connection with any dog or cat that we photograph. A photo session with us is like an extended play session for the entire family! 

"We are thrilled with the pictures. These guys were super friendly and relaxed and so good with our Brittany, Charlie. An enjoyable experience and we definitely recommend them for your Pet photography needs. "
