Bonilla Pet Photography

Our guest today, Erin Bonilla, successfully manages an extreme balancing act between traditional studio pet portraiture and brilliantly bizarre conceptual animal artwork. She runs her studio, Bonilla Pet Photography with a team of three others in Chesapeake, Virginia and her mission as a photographer is to capture the personality and uniqueness of each pet in front of her lens.
