The Inland Northwest's Adventure Dog Photographer

timeless memories of you and your dog doing dog things in Spokane and North Idaho

Bring the adventure home

Dogs change how we see the world. With our best friends by our side, we live more in the moment. Big White Dog Photography helps you turn those moments into amazing art and magical memories.

Adventures are made infinitely better with a dog next to us.

Big White Dog Photography documents your journey together with bold images that leap off the walls of your home. Adventure dog photographer Angela Schneider has a deep appreciation of the connection you have with your dog – because she has one, too.

Tell your story your way

Big White Dog Photography specializes in telling the amazing story of you and your dog doing dog things in the Inland Northwest. Together we create an incredible experience for you and your dog at a gorgeous location around Spokane, Washington, and North Idaho. We are surrounded by beautiful parks, scenery and landscapes that serve as the perfect backdrop for the adventures you share with your best fur friend. 

We turn your fantastic memories into incredible art, keepsakes and decor for your home. 

Your Journey Book

This is more than a photo album. It’s the story of your journey with your dog, a book crafted by award-winning storyteller, Angela Schneider, the Chief Memory Maker at Big White Dog Photography.

Adventure Day Session

We can go for a walk in the park or a hike in the hills. An Adventure Day session with Big White Dog Photography is an experience that’s custom-designed for you and your dog.

NOTE: I move mountains to change my schedule if your session becomes urgent.

The Big White Dog experience

Step 1

Cruise the site

Take a tour and get to know what I do, why I do it and how you get a one-of-a-kind portrait with your dog.

Step 2

Start planning

Book a phone consultation so we can get down to the nitty gritty of all the details for your session.

Step 3

Enjoy the day

All the fun happens! We create incredible images of our adventure around Spokane or North Idaho.

Step 4

We create art

We pick your favorite images from your adventure and turn them into art pieces for your home.

The story starts here:

Angela absolutely blew us away!! She is extremely talented, super nice and just wonderful to work with. She is a natural with animals and humans alike. Can't recommend her enough!

Dogs doing dog things in Spokane and Coeur d'Alene

Our pets aren’t with us long enough. Their time on Earth is too brief and we are left with giant holes in our hearts and our lives. The adventures we take together become even more meaningful as time passes and our bonds with our dogs deepen. 

But that’s also when the muzzle starts to turn gray and the body starts to wear down. 

A portrait session with Big White Dog Photography freezes your journeys in time, letting you hold onto the moment forever and bringing the adventure home. 

And never forget: Urgent sessions take priority on my calendar. Don’t hesitate to text or call me if your time with your dog is nearing its end. We will work together to ensure your story is told.
