Why hello...

I have had a love for photography and have been professionally photographing for many years. Having recently settled in Victoria on Vancouver Island, I decided to make a shift in who I photograph. Bring on the doggos! I would love the opportunity to capture your furbaby's personality in the community I now call home.

Let's chat about what you are envisioning for your portraits.

Victoria has so much to offer when it comes to shoot locations.  From urban to ocean, forest to lake. Together we will come up for the perfect session plan for you and your dog.

Creating safely

A leash is used to keep your dog in place – and safe during your session. I remove leashes and collars (if requested) in post production. I prefer to work in locations that have few distractions so your dog can comfortable with me and the environment around them.
