Meet Victor, Max, and Patricia of Pet Parlour (a spa, daycare, and boutique store in Vancouver, BC). Pet Parlour is a family-owned and operated business that I had the pleasure of working for last weekend.
If you asked Victor or Patricia, they’d tell you that Pet Parlour all started with Max (who is featured in the Pet Parlour logo). But Max is three years old! What happened in between?
Patricia and Victor always knew that they wanted to open a business, but they didn’t meet until 2010—I’ll get to that in a sec.
Patricia obtained her marketing and HR degree from SFU in 2002 and began working in architectural and tech industries soon after. In 2009, with influence from her brother-in-law, she took up a 3-month grooming program. She then worked part-time as a groomer at a daycare and vet for a year, while still working part-time at an IT company. In 2010, she adopted Max as a little puppy.
It was a life changing decision. As Patricia states, “dogs love you unconditionally,” and that feeling of being loved really opened her up to finding love, too.

Just a little funny gif I made just for fun with photos taken from Pet Parlour’s anniversary event.

This past Saturday I had the opportunity to photograph a whole bunch of dogs at Pet Parlour’s 1-year-anniversary celebration. Dogs are just so naturally photogenic that it’s hard not to come away with fun-loving, great photos. Here’s a sneak peek of one of the shots I took that day; that’s Fraser in the foreground and the little white fluff-ball in the background is Cosmo. Cosmo was so brilliant that I felt inspired to create an animated GIF. Stay tuned for more!

Mid-way through an event I was asked to shoot one evening, a surprise retirement party, it occurred to me that I was really tired. Firing shot after shot—and quickly making the creative and technical decisions for each—can be pretty exhausting. I can only imagine the kind of stress that wedding photographers go through.
