There are now several pet photographers out there and it seems like new ones are popping in and out every day, while only a few persevere.  This creates much confusion as to who does what and how, and just who are these people, anyway? So, it's time for an introduction.

Who Are We?

Animal Instincts, based in Newburg, PA, has been traveling the eastern United States since 1993. Prior to this, Jeanette Rowan was photographing children and families, when hired by a pet photo company for one season. During this time she was bitten by the "there has got to be a better way" bug and struck out on her own. About two years passed, when along stumbled Kerry Kelly, a photographer from New York state who was sick and tired of being bitten by children and was looking for a way to either: a) find a much better photography job, or b) follow an old calling to work with animals. So, with beagle in tow it was off to Pennsylvania. Before long the improvement bug struck again. Instead of parting ways, the two combined forces to provide the finest in pet portraiture. Since then, things have never been quite the same!

Who We Are...Not?

We are NOT photographers who specialize in pets!
We are PET PEOPLE who happen to be photographers!
