Behind The Lens


I’m Sandi Ford, the person behind the lens at Unleashed Pawtraits, Dog Photographer based in Neenah, WI. 

Having spent many years in the UK photographing babies and families, after I moved to Wisconsin in 2015 I wanted to return to what led me into photography in the first instance; animals! 

In 2003 I was preparing and packing for an African Safari vacation and decided I had better buy a camera... so I purchased a little point and shoot. 

After practicing on my beloved Border Collie at home, I discovered that the little camera wasn't going to cut it, and so I bought my first SLR. 

Thus began my real passion... photographing animals.  

I have always loved animals (more than people if I'm honest!) and over the years have owned dogs, cats, hamsters, rabbits, fish, horses and chickens...but right now I have my beautiful Keeshonds who have stolen my heart ❤️ 

In 2016 I created Unleashed Pawtraits, Dog Photography in Neenah, WI. 

While I primarily focus on dogs, I'd also be delighted to welcome your cats, birds and 'pocket pets'! 

During my time in the UK I was considered one of Englands leading baby photographers with my images featured in International photography publications, Newspapers, magazines and TV.  

Nowadays you can usually find me at a dog show where I'm either competing with my own dogs or photographing others in the ring! 

Unleashed Pawtraits Pet and Dog photography is now booking clients from the following areas; 

Appleton | Neenah | Menasha | Kimberly | Green Bay | New London | Hortonville | Oshkosh | Fond Du Lac | De Pere | Fox Cities | Manitowoc | Greenville and further afield (ie Madison/Milwaukee).
