About DeSilva Studios
DeSilva Studios is a Northern Virginia-based pet photography studio run by owner and founder, Alison. DeSilva Studios had an unconventional beginning — at local humane societies and animal welfare shelters! Giving in to her love for animals big and small, Alison began photographing dogs and cats to help the welfare leagues post realistic images that would lead to adoptions. In the process, Alison fell in love with a puppy and photography. Alison expanded her family to adopt the puppy, Coco, a rotti-mix. And, she grew her photography hobby into a business! Her images went on to gain nation-wide attention, winning photo awards and contests.
For the past ten years Alison has been photo-documenting pets and their people. Sought after for her signature look — classic, timeless, emotive, black and whites — Alison books quickly.
At DeSilva Studios, pets are family. As a pet owner, Alison understands the joy animals give us every day. Her images do the same. Whether your pet is with you or not, Alison's images allow you to experience their beauty, character and charm. Dogs, cats, fish, hamsters: pets — family — love.
