Cold Noses, Warm Poses.
My goal is to create a portrait that you will love today, and will treasure even more as time passes.
Pets are a big part of many families - mine included. Just as with their children, many people try to take snapshots of their pets to preserve lasting memories, yet they usually fail to really capture the beauty, the whimsy, or the true love that the pets offer. Anybody can take a snapshot, but great pet photography that really captures the essence of your pet involves a whole lot more than just taking a picture.
With years of experience and the awards to prove it (including all three top prizes in an international pet portrait competition!), I use a gentle approach and a bit of animal psychology to create photographic art that you will be proud to hang prominently in your home. I aim to bring a smile to every pet owner’s face when they see their beautiful family member captured in a stunning, lasting portrait.
Many photographers will consider photographing a pet, but they may not openly welcome your furry family members. I'm dedicated to creating a unique portrait that will forever preserve your special relationship with your pet. Your portrait may be elegant or whimsical, but will always be wonderful.
