Photographing Dogs on the Beach

I used to be fairly opposed to photographing dogs on the beach in San Francisco. It’s too bright, there is too much sand, dogs can be distracted, etc. I’ve probably done one beach dog photography session per year for the past few years just for those reasons.

Three Tiny Dogs in Los Angeles

I photographed Mia, Luigia and Paolo recently in Los Angeles. Their dads used to be in the fashion industry, and now make amazing beauty products. On top of that, they spend much of their time raising money for no-kill animal shelters and organizations- a cause that’s very dear to my heart. I knew our Los […]

Terriers in Hollywood- LA Pet Photography

I photographed Paddy and Abigail recently in Los Angeles. These two handsome and playful Terrier mixes were incredibly charming with their scruffy fur and smiling faces and racing around the back yard at full speed and crashing into each other.

Finding Shelter photography series launches!

I’m so happy to be finally launching Finding Shelter – the photography series I’ve been working on for the past few months. As I’ve been seeing so many of these wonderful new dog photography series featuring shelter animals, or senior animals, or service animals, or dying animals, or rescue animals- I can’t help but wonder […]
