My heart beats DOG!
I’m a New York City area pet photographer with a true passion for dogs, photography, and world travel. I had this moment, back when I was planning my wedding, where I realized the power of photos – the way they bring emotion to the surface, the way they preserve our favorite memories.
That’s when it all came together. The dogs in my life, and the experiences we share together, these are my favorite memories. I believe every pet owner should feel the joy of having photographs and artwork that truly reflect their pet’s personality and capture each pet’s unique spirit. Every pet is as unique as a snowflake or fingerprint – there’s not another in the world like it! In every portrait I create, I’m striving to capture this for my clients.
My two Maltese, Junior and Kitty Pumpkin, are the inspiration for the art that I create. Kitty Pumpkin at my side, bringing me joy on the daily with her many expressions (and demands). Junior… in my heart. The first dog I ever loved as an adult and lost. When I see his face in photos, I’m reminded why I do what I do. And every time I get behind the camera, I’m compelled to capture those one-of-a-kind personalities on film.
When I look back at how I got here, I realize dog photography was, for me, inevitable.
I travel the world with my husband (who’s also my super talented photo assistant), not only to see its natural beauty, its architecture, its history… but also to capture its canine citizens. We meet up with fellow photographers, hone our artistry, and make four-legged friends.
I enjoy every single face I meet, because dogs are absolutely perfect, aren’t they? Each and every spirit.
If you’re still reading, we should definitely meet. I’d love to meet your dog and learn what makes them unique. Through art, we’ll be sure these cherished moments last forever.
