PHOTOGRAPHER OLIVIA GREY PROTCHARD: MUTTS

ON BIG BLEND RADIO: Award-winning photographer Olivia Grey Pritchard discusses her beautiful and heartwarming new coffee table book, “MUTTS: A Celebration of Mystery Mixed Breeds.” Listen here in the YouTube player or download the podcast on PodBean.


Whether you currently have a mutt, grew up with one, or you’re a pet-free animal lover, MUTTS by Olivia Grey Pritchard is a must have for your coffee table.

MUTTS is a photographic celebration of mystery mixed breeds. If you’ve ever loved a bonafide mutt, you know that they’re some of the best, most loyal dogs ever. This stellar book features more than 100 gorgeous pups from all different origins and breeds, photographed by the award-winning talent Olivia Grey Pritchard. Each photo is accompanied by the pooch’s name, best guess of breed mix, and lists unique traits.

MUTTS aims to inspire joy and connection when readers look through these photographs. And for people who haven’t considered adopting a rescue pet before, this book shows that mutts have just as many unique, lovable, and desirable qualities as pedigreed dogs.

Pritchard’s mission with this book is to call attention to the heartbreaking fact that according to the ASPCA, over half a million dogs are euthanized in US shelters each year, and to encourage more rescue adoptions. In addition to fostering more love for mutts, a portion of the proceeds from the book are being donated to organizations that rescue and spay/neuter, including Take Paws Rescue, Animal Rescue New Orleans, Zeus’ Place, Greta’s Ark Animal Rescue, Trampled Rose Rescue, and the LASPCA.

After five years as a United Nations photographer working in combat zones, Olivia moved to New Orleans in 2012 and began serving families with her unique perspective of the visual legacy we want to create for our children (with fur and without!). Through her work behind the camera and creating her archival-quality artwork that families cherish for generations, Olivia preserves both the milestone and the everyday memories.

Olivia has owned mutts her whole life—from a border collie mix named Spike that her mom found as a puppy trying to get milk out of a carton and a husky mix named Wylie who met the school bus every afternoon, to the most loyal hound / shepherd mix named Chester who loved to sun himself in a certain spot in the front yard. So it’s no surprise that as an adult, she has a 120 pound St. Bernard / retriever / shepherd rescue named Jasper—the most patient, protective, devoted dog ever.

The subject is always the focus of her portraits, and Olivia seeks honesty and authenticity in her art.
