Playful and Magical Pet Portraiture
Toronto • Moncton
With 25 years experience in the animal care field and more than half of that time spent working in animal shelters, I am uniquely qualified to work with animals who may be timid, reactive, or who have special needs. Your pet's safety and comfort are my greatest concern. I am committed to using positive reinforcement along with a healthy dose of patience in order to create images you will treasure forever.
I am a proud member of the Professional Photographers of Canada and have achieved my National Accreditation in Canine Portraiture.
From classic, painterly style canvases to modern acrylic blocks and from formal studio portraits to fun outdoor action shoots, together we will find the perfect way to commemorate your pet.
Ideally, your consultation will also include a chance for me to meet your pet, so that we can get to know each other without the scary camera in the way. This will be an opportunity for you and I to discuss what kind of session your pet would be most comfortable with.
Will I Photograph Your Wedding (No!)
Will I Photograph Your Dog's Wedding? (Yes!)
Here Are The Answers To Some Common Questions.
My specialty is Pet Photography, however I have devoted my career to nurturing the bond between people and their pets. Your pet's session will be focused on capturing your pet's personality and the behaviours and expressions you love. That being said, I am always happy to include a few images of you or your family interacting with your pet(s). Just promise not to be offended if I whistle and make funny noises to get your attention!
Need a professional head shot that includes your furry assistant for your pet related business (dog walkers, groomers, veterinarians, etc)? Contact me for a custom quote. I can also provide photos of your pet related business for your website and marketing materials.
My clients are looking for heirloom quality, tangible art pieces that will last for many years to come, and that is what I create for them. All of my printed materials are of the highest quality available and come from professional print labs. Your artwork will appear exactly as it appeared on my computer screen and will be guaranteed not to fade or discolour for many decades. I cannot guarantee the quality, colour management, or longevity of prints ordered from consumer labs.
I make sharing the love easy. That's why I provide a web resolution file with every printed image you purchase. Invest in a custom designed, archival quality album or photo book and receive an app including all of your selected images. The app will display your images perfectly on your phone or tablet and can be shared to social media for friends and family to enjoy. You will have the best of both worlds: A digital copy to enjoy on your devices, and a hard copy that will outlast the current technology and become more priceless as the years go by.
I WISH I COULD AFFORD PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS OF MY PET, BUT IT JUST ISN'T IN THE BUDGET RIGHT NOW. DO YOU OFFER ANY DEALS OR DISCOUNTS?
Occasionally, I may offer themed mini-sessions at a rate that will be more affordable for some. These dates can book up fast, so sign up for email updates and get access to priority booking.
Think your pet has star quality? Sometimes I need a pet of a certain breed or skill set for a commercial photo shoot. Stay in touch and it could be Fluffy's big break!
Welcome to the club! My own pets won't be winning any obedience trials, either. I aim to work with your pet, not against them. If you have an energetic young dog who loves to run, then let's head outside and create some fun action images. Your chihuahua hates it outside and runs around trying to bite everyone? Mine, too! We'll stay indoors and take our time and when your pet is comfortable, I'll create some beautiful formal portraits. I promise that you will be amazed and delighted with your images. even if your pet is a wild child.
