Ariane Delafosse is a photographer, artist and believer of being true to yourself and others in everything you do. Born in France and raised in New York, she eventually followed her heart to Colorado. Along the twists and turns of a life fully lived, her dogs have grounded her with their unbridled affection and loyal companionship. It is here that she has immersed herself in a passion for portraiture and DelaFoto was born.

Whether human or animal, she believes that every soul is beautiful, and she has made it her mission to capture that essence through her photography. Ariane’s portraits are evocative and heartfelt, and as memorable as the personalities captivating each frame. With the stillness of portraiture, the heart and soul of her subject comes into focus.

Ariane’s gift to people, who love their animal companions as more than pets, is to capture their individuality permanently. A single frame, elegant in its simplicity, portrays an animal’s unconditional love for their bonded human to be treasured forever.

Integrity and quality are the foundation of Ariane’s artwork, and with the results she has produced, DelaFoto has emerged as a premiere pet photography studio in the greater Denver area.

Beyond the studio, you’ll likely find Ariane exploring Colorado with her trusted sheltie, Ladybug, by her side, a camera in hand - always ready to capture life’s precious, fleeting moments.


"The photo's honestly brought me to tears they were SO BEAUTIFUL! I'm already very biased (as every dog owner naturally is) and think my doggie is the most beautiful, however Ariane has made her look even more like the reigning Princess that I know she is." Janet S.

 

"Wow, my husband and I could not have asked for a better experience. Ariane was patient, friendly, and professional. She has a clear passion for animals and captured the personality of our horse perfectly. We had a great time and are very happy with the quality of the products." Kelly G.

 

I have had several sessions with DelaFoto and it is always a pleasurable experience. My pictures come out so well it is hard to make a decision on which ones I should not get...I usually end up getting them all. Great photographer and outstanding results with lots of products to choose from to have as a memory! Kelly D.

 

We've had two separate sessions with Ariane, ant thew were both great! Even with 5 people and 4 dogs, she was able to capture a perfect photo. Matthew J.

 

Wonderful style. Made us and our dog feel relaxed. We enjoyed the experience and have beautiful pictures to treasure. Leslie M.

 

"I met Ariane for Christmas pictures of my Dog, Merlin. She did such a wonderful job! Very efficient and able to get Merlin to pose so handsomely! The print I got was beautiful....really captured his personality! I will definitely go back to Ariane. Great Photographer!" Lisa K.

 

"Ariane was so incredible with my labs and took the time to make them feel comfortable! Great experience for me and the dogs, truly can't express our gratitude enough!" Michelle R

 

"Ariane is a wonderful pet photographer and also donates time and services to pet rescues. She really captures your pet's personality. I highly recommend her!" Phyllis S.

 

"Ariane was amazing! Her professionalism and photographic abilities were outstanding and I couldn't have been happier with the results of our shoot at Wash Park. My dog is a therapy dog for a local hospital and we needed photos for our annual calendar. Ariane was able to capture him completely and she made me look beyond amazing as well (I generally take horrible photos). I'm very happy to recommend her and DelaFoto." Monika M.

 

"Ariane combines her passion, experience, professionalism and a love of animals to capture special moments in photos you will love.  I was delighted by my experience with Ariane and her extraordinary work.  I recommend her without exception."  Wayne C.

 

"We were very impressed with Ariane throughout the entire process. She was so patient during our session with our two dogs who did not want to take a picture together. She really knows her stuff in getting the dogs to react in order to get the best picture possible together & individually. The presentation of the proofs was done so well, I wanted every single shot. The finished pictures were amazing & captured their personalities, to a "T". My husband & I are so happy with the finished product we are still in awe!!" CB. S.

 

I love seeing the dawg's pure essence and beauty captured! You photograph them the way I see them from the moment the shelters ask me to take them under the rescue umbrella. Take Ella for example, she is beautiful to those who know her with her big doe eyes and charming personality. But let's face it, she has seen some really hard times and her face and ears show it. You made her shine. I can't stop looking at the pics! Amazing just amazing!  Nikki G., My Fairy Dawg Mother Hound Rescue
