Pets on Film

Of the ways to immortalize your beloved pet, photographs capture their wee spirit the best. Sure you can snap random pictures of Fluffy and Fido yourself, but if you want it done by a pro, you can call Custom Companions. This business consists of three area photographers, Lori Priestly, Mary Alice Wasden, and Lindsey Eltinge, who decided to “share their gear and talents to deliver extraordinary images,” said Priestly. “Each of us has a special kinship with our particular animal, and a knack for capturing the personality of the critter in front of our lens.” Wasden specializes in horses, Priestley in dogs, and Eltinge in exotic birds. For more information, call (888) 430-0444 or visit Custom Companions’ Web site at
