First, a little about you...
Your dog is an important family member that brings you joy, love and companionship.
Time spent with your dog is valued and you treasure each moment you have together.
You love to include your pet in family events, vacations and holiday cards.
You worry about your dog when you are away from home.
You have done things to keep your dog from feeling lonely, such as leaving the radio or TV on, or getting a 2nd pet for company.
If this is you, then you would treasure a keepsake album with candid portraits of your dog - a beautiful custom designed coffee-table photo book or perhaps some stunning wall art to showcase the pets that you love.
Now a little about me - Toronto professional dog and pet photographer.
My love of dogs started as a very young child when our family owned a Cocker Spaniel called "Happy", named for his very sad-looking face. I wish I had some photographs of him but sadly none were taken! From then on our family always had a dog or two, and as an adult of course I was never without a dog!
Having loved, owned and trained dogs for most of my life, it was a natural step for me to combine my love of dogs with my passion for photography and to share these passions with people who wish to capture their dog's unique personality in pictures of real life moments.
I am an on-location, natural light, lifestyle professional pet photographer, specializing in dog photography. I am based in Toronto, Canada but also take occassional assignments in Southeast Florida. My goal is to provide custom pet images that encompass the joy and love that your dog gives to you and your family, images that evoke pleasure when you look at them on your wall or page through your custom-designed coffee-table photo book.
I have many years of experience as a dog trainer and have achieved winning awards and titles with my own dogs in dog obedience and agility competitions. This experience enables me to work with puppies, shy dogs, the elderly and the wild at heart.
Helping dogs in need of homes
As a member of HeARTs Speak, an international nonprofit organization that is uniting art and advocacy to increase the visibility of shelter animals, I am always more than happy to offer pro-bono sessions for shelter pets.
If you are an animal shelter or dog rescue organization located in the Toronto area, please feel free to contact me regarding photography sessions for your shelter animals.
I am currently volunteering as a dog and cat photographer for the Etobicoke Humane Society in Toronto.
These are special photography sessions for terminally ill and aging pets, to provide you with treasured memories of the love you shared, and the joy they brought to your life. Once our pets are gone, for most of us, what remains are the special moments captured in photographs. A Legacy Session will ensure that you have these memories preserved!
When required, I will make every effort to schedule a session at very short notice.
