My Goal with this Project

is to raise awareness of local dog related organizations and showcase shelter dogs.

I do things a little differently, I'm not your typical pet photographer. I spend the majority of my time photographing shelter dogs.
I book on a referral based program. My photography style is candid shots focused on your dog. I always photograph in natural settings.

I donate my time and skills to Maricopa County Animal Care and surrounding Phoenix organizations. My favorite thing to do is to take photos of dogs to help them find homes. I mostly spend my time volunteering for REACT AZ, Community Canine Project, Almost There: A Mom + Pups Rescue and Maricopa County Animal Care. I am also a proud HeARTs Speak member.

I work with amazing companies that give back to our community, like Tooth & Honey, Rescue Strong, and Project PAL.

A little bit about myself - I work full time for a local hospital and volunteer on the weekends. I am the proud guardian of The Naughty Panther, Sasha, adopted from MCAC West in 2019.


Greeting cards featuring shelter dogs that were made in collaboration with Rescue Strong are available for purchase. 100% of the profits from the cards benefit REACT AZ, they can be found here.
