2018 Year in Review

2018 Year in Review

2018 was a great year! Not only did I get to photograph wolves (and get kissed by one—one of the highlights of my life!), but I also:

  • Raised almost $15,000 for various charitable organizations, mostly animal rescue.
  • Won a Bronze Medal in the Professional Photographers of America’s International Print Competition.
  • Launched my newest fundraiser/book project, “Tails of Loudoun County.” My goal is to raise $25,000 for Friends of Loudoun County Animal Services and the Loudoun Community Cat Coalition.
  • Most importantly though, we adopted our two newest family members, kittens, Panther and Storm. (We adopted them through Loudoun Community Cat Coalition, one of the beneficiaries of “Tails of Loudoun County.)

Thank you to my clients for all their support and to everyone who came to one of my fundraisers. And I couldn’t have raised that much money without my amazing partners: Woofie’s, Happy Hound, Leesburg Veterinary Hospital and Dog Day Afternoon. I’m looking forward to an even better 2019.

Here are some of my favorite photos from this year:


About me

Ellen Zangla Photography: Pet portraits with personality!

M.Photog., Certified Professional Photographer

Professional Photographers of America: 2018 Bronze Medal Photographer of the Year

My pets, two dogs and four cats, are an integral part of the fabric of my life. I absolutely adore them. Like other family members whom we love, I feel that it is incredibly important to have portraits of them that capture the essence of who they are, whether they’re regal or goofy (or both!) or somewhere in between. If you feel the same way about your dog, cat or other fur or scaled kid, here’s how you can learn more about a pet photo shoot with me works. Or feel free to contact me. I am a pet photographer, specializing in photographs of pets and pets with their people. I serve all of Northern Virginia, including Loudoun, Fairfax, Leesburg, Ashburn and Reston, as well the DC Metro area, and I would love to create pet portraits for you that you will treasure for a lifetime.
