Windy Paws: Chicago


What would it feel like to have a portrait of your pup that captured him at his most joyful, vibrant, and alive?

As pet owners, we know our pets are curious, lively, and give us the unconditional love we need when we need it most. Celebrate your story today with a photographic experience that will mean the world to you, every day!


Give yourself the gift of a unique and dynamic portrait of your pet. The Chicago WINDY PAWS sessions are here, and spots are limited!



"We just received our artwork and it is absolutely stunning. I could not love it more! Thank you a million times over, I cannot stop looking at all of it! We are so blessed to have been captured by your amazing talent. This is something we will hold special forever." -Cheryl

Your dog is your loyal companion, your best friend, your enthusiastic welcoming party each evening when you get home from work. He's your adventure partner, or maybe your snuggly best friend. It's time to give him some time in the spotlight and to really let him shine.


Your WINDY PAWS photo session is a one-of-a-kind experience. For just $75, your pup will be treated to an exclusive, private photo session with Internationally award-winning photographer Candice Cusic, who has over 20 years of experience.

Your dog will be cared for by the incredible dog groomers at Sydnee's Pet Grooming and will be professionally dried after your photo shoot!


After the session, we will schedule a time for you to visit Candice's studio (1431 W. Chicago Ave.) to see the photographs she captured and we guarantee you'll be blown away! (No pun intended.)


Your moment-driven photography will be available for purchase and you can choose to showcase them in an album, an image box, or (our favorite) featured in some gorgeous wall art! Prices start at $150 and your total investment is up to you.

If you love the fun, quirky, free-spirited side of your pet and you want to capture that, a WINDY PAWS session is the PERFECT gift to yourself.


Candice specializes in moment-driven photography, and it's what brings your portraits to life. Your friends will be awestruck by your gorgeous portrait every time they walk into your house, and we like to believe that your pup will feel a swell of pride each time he sees his own portrait on the wall too!


Candice will also donate a portion of your $75 session fee to the animal shelter of your choice, so you can feel good about helping others while also creating a beautiful keepsake for yourself featuring your favorite furry companion.


There are only a few spots available each day, and they are going quickly! Click here to reserve your session and take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime chance to let your dog be the star of the show and walk away with a portrait you'll cherish for the rest of your life.

Windy Paws project is done in partnership with Sydnee's Pet Grooming.
