Hi, there! My name is Petra Terova and I'm a published lifestyle, portrait, pet and wedding photographer and owner of pet boutique Pandora's Box Photo Studio – recently relocated from FL to NC and currently based out of Mooresville – Lake Norman, North Carolina area. 

I was born and raised in former Czechoslovakia and immigrated to the United States in 2001. My artistic journey started here more than 10 years ago with graphic design followed by studies in black & white portraiture. From studio and location shoots to darkroom film and print development, I explored many different genres and photographic processes. As a Fine Arts Photography major, I gravitated towards portraiture right from the start. I am also a huge animal lover and a dog mom to two beautiful rescues – Daysi and Pandora, that naturally led me to explore pet photography and other animal related photo adventures. 

Whether I’m photographing people or animals, I love being in the process of creating a new vision for a shoot. I also feel that having a background in graphic design gives me a unique perspective on photography as well as the ability to create interesting ideas with attention to small details. I also love to create personal fine art photography and design projects for local businesses and individuals.

Pandora's Box Photo Studio is a Mooresville, NC based pet boutique specializing in commercial pet photography, custom dog portraiture and companion pet photography.

I offer variety of unique photo sessions that also include complimentary props and treats for the fur babies and a large selection of enlargement prints and wall art products for your home. And don't worry at all if your pup isn't obedience trained, I have worked with many energetic, unruly dogs and got some really amazing shots!

I also love being part of a community that understands the importance of animal welfare and I'm passionate about helping local rescues and shelter organizations by volunteering my photography services in order to help network shelter animals so they can find their forever home.
