Growing up I always had a pet in the house, mostly dogs. Anytime a pet was around it was like a magnet drawing me towards them.

I had a fairly traumatic experience when I was 8 years old with a dog but it never tarnished my love for animals. Instead, it has made my bond with them so much stronger.

Prior to starting Joshua Oldridge Photography in 2017, I spent 6 years as a hairstylist at a top local salon. I received best hairstylist of Springfield in 2012. That career gave me the experience to understand clients needs and how to achieve the results needed.

“To keep those you love around, always, by capturing their essence and moments thru photograph.”

If you have in your head that “my pet would never be able to do that”, “my pet is bad”, “my pet would never sit still long enough”, then I’m the photographer for you. Those are some of the best clients. Capturing your pet being themselves is what it’s all about.

I photograph pets because it an amazing creative outlet for me and bonding with your pets is a very special and unique situation every time. To be able to capture your pets personality in a session is always the goal. Images last forever, and what better way to remember your beloved furry friends.

Sending an inquiry is your first step to having stunning artwork of your pet! Can’t wait to meet you and your pets!



Session fee is due at the time of booking and is non-refundable. I will happily reschedule and apply your session fee to your future appointment.



Each photo session is customized to you and your companion’s household, sport, discipline, health, character, etc. I specialize in creating portraits that capture your pet’s personality and showcasing it. Your session will take place at the location of your choice: your home, your favorite park, or your pet’s other favorite location. Locations include Phoenix, Arizona and a 20 mile radius.

Typical sessions last 1 to 2 hours. However, I shoot until there is a great selection of photos to choose from. It’s important for you to know I get to know your pet before the session begins so we are familiar with one another and I capture your pet’s personality in a photo that will tug at your heart as much as they do.

You will also receive low resolution watermarked images from your purchases to share on social media sites for your friends and family to enjoy. You will definitely want to show your furry ones off!



Other pets may be added for an additional $25/each.



At times, a mini session may be an option depending upon availability, it is roughly 30 minutes of shooting and a smaller number of finished/edited photos.

Fee does NOT include prints or digitals, but it does cover a pre-consultation by phone or in person, and a private viewing gallery for 10 days. Your Gallery will be available for viewing approximately 14 days after your shoot. Every photo is carefully edited. You can expect an array of photos/artwork to choose from that can be customized to meet any style.

Prints are sold à la carte, and most clients budget $250 and up for prints and other product options.
