Meet Sarah

A native Washingtonian, Sarah Meashaw is a pet photographer who is obsessed with her two dogs, Toby and Rooby. Truly, this is where her passion for paws started!

She attended Syracuse University and earned a B.A. in Hospitality Management. Upon realizing photography was her calling, Sarah decided to make it her career. That’s when she decided to attend the Washington School of Photography.

Sarah has since graduated and is an award-winning and highly sought after pet photographer.

Hey there! Toby here.

Let me tell you about my mom, Sarah!

One of my favorite humans is named Sarah. She’s truly the example of a dog’s best friend — anytime we play together, Sarah likes to bring her favorite toy…

It’s a big black object that she holds in her hands. She presses a button, it flashes light, then makes a clicking noise.

Sometimes, she shares her toy with me by showing me a rectangular box on the back, and for some reason, there’s a dog that looks just like me on the screen!

We have so much fun together that I highly recommend you play with her, too. (But, just so you know, Sarah belongs to me, though I’d be happy to let you foster her for a little while.)

Respectfully yours,
Shitzu Poodle Mix
