About Rayna

colorado pet photographer, rayna mcginnisHello, I am Rayna and I’m an animal loving, travel addicted, Colorado pet photographer.  I’m also the owner and photographer of Hound Dog Studios.

I live in Westminster, Colorado with my husband and our SIX rescue animals. That’s right, two dogs, four cats and more animal fur than most people could possibly imagine. #worthit.

Hound Dog Studios is named after my dogs, Savannah and Stitch. They’re both Black Mouth Cur mixes, and curs are part of the Hound family. They’re very smart, loyal and determined to do whatever they want to do, whenever they want to do it. They keep me on my toes at all times and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Over the years, my husband and I have saved more animals than I can count. We captured, vaccinated and re-homed feral kittens when we lived in Pueblo, have pulled a scared cat out of the engine of a car,  fostered numerous dogs for Life is Better Rescue,  and have picked up DOZENS of random dogs and cats off the street and returned them to their worried owners.  We’ve even cancelled a day at the beach to run around Savannah, GA trying to help a dog we found at a gas station (spoiler alert, we ended up keeping her).

Over the years, I’ve also used my dog training and photography skills to help over 100 animals get adopted. Now I’m stepping that up a notch, and allowing you to help out as well. As of 2017, Hound Dog Studios will donate a portion of every session to a Colorado based animal rescue or shelter. Not only do you get a fabulous photo of your dog to display, you do so knowing that a portion of your session is going to help save animals throughout the state!
