Hello! My name is Kelly Schulze and I'm an award-winning Certified Professional Photographer who specializes in studio and environmental animal portraiture. With my love and understanding of animal behavior, years of technical training, and a fast shutter finger I am able to consistently wow my clients with stunning, heartwarming portraits and an unforgettable experience.
I am based out of Monkton, Vermont and travel throughout the northeast for on-location portrait sessions. I am also available for animal-related product photography and commercial licensing.
Our five dogs (Logan, Jackson, Molly, JB, and Ansel), six cats (Trinity, Luci, Bink, Dorie, Judy, and Masson), 10 laying hens, and Alistair the rooster graciously share their home with my husband, Ian, and I.
Have fun browsing my galleries and fill out the Contact form if you're so inclined.
Peace, Purrs, and Tail Wags,
I am fortunate to live in a wonderful community of animal lovers and talented artists. Check out some of my favorite people, non-profits and businesses:
Shelters and Rescues:
Humane Society of Chittenden County: We've worked with them since January 2009 and the work they do is phenomenal.
Central Vermont Humane Society: We adopted Molly from them and they also do amazing work.
Ivana Iguana Wisdom and Rescue: A wonderful reptile and exotics rescue, right in the heart of Burlington!
Animal Farm Foundation: They're changing the pit-bull dog stereotype in a positive way.
HeARTs Speak: A worldwide group of artists dedicated to helping rescue animals and educating the public
Stephen Huneck: We have several of his pieces on our walls. If you can, make the trip to Dog Mountain.
Yellow Dog Art: I love Pam Harris' unique and bright style. She's local to VT and a wonderful person.

Tipsy Nip: The best cat toys and treats you could possibly buy. Our cats are addicted!
