Melia Photography began in 1991. Ellen, having owned and loved Yorkies since she was 16-year-old, began breeding and attempting to show them. Pete would come to the shows and take photos. Many exhibitors liked his photos and Melia Photography began. Pete was introduced to Don Petrulia and worked for him for several years, where he learned about dog show photography. He had photographed some of the top show dogs in the country, being fortunate enough to learn from many top handlers how each breed should look. Our son, Brian, has worked with us for 20 years and now our granddaughter, Amber, has been shooting with us, too. She is proving to be an excellent addition to our crew.

We look forward to working with each and every one of you in the years to come.
