When we love an animal as our family, we begin to understand they are our family.

About Me


I am Janet Zimmer and I am Janet Zimmer Photography, with some occasional assistance from my very supportive husband. We live with my best buddy, a small parrot, in beautiful Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.

I fell in love with photography as a child and learned with a fully manual camera using black and white film.  Since then, I have studied extensively at Pratt Institute, the International Center of Photography, Maine Media Workshops, & Silvermine Arts Center, and at Professional Photographers of America programs and other professional workshops.

And did I mention that I am an avid animal lover? I have owned virtually every type of pet imaginable—dogs, cats, birds, a rabbit, turtles and lizards -- so I know that pets are important and beloved members of our families.   I have also volunteered for years at various pet and wildlife organizations, including the Bronx Zoo,  the Connecticut State Animal Response Team, and the Mystic Aquarium's Marine Mammal Rescue Team.  

Combining my love of photography with my love of animals is a natural for me, which is why I offer pet portraits as a specialty.

 I would love the opportunity to photograph you and your pet family.
