About

My dog is my everything. She is my love, my life and my inspiration.
She has helped show me that animals lives are so precious. Tiny lives to be revered – to respect, to look up to, to learn from and to love.
My contribution is to show the world the beauty of our pets and animals by creating photos that show us their life was special, they meant something to us and ultimately that they were loved. I believe that expressing the love we have for animals and embracing the love they show us in return, makes us richer people.

Having grown up around animals and having my own dog, Peanut, I’ve felt more and more connected and passionate about our relationships with animals and more specifically dogs as more than just pets, as part of our family. After moving to Melbourne 6 years ago, with Melbourne being an awesome community of dog lovers, I was even more inspired to incorporate my love of animals into my photography. I’ve always been an avid animal lover and animal rights supporter but my love for Peanut has shown me just how much a pet can influence your life for the better. Bringing joy, love and happiness to everyday, I feel it is important to capture and cherish these memories, moments and rewarding relationships with our pets.

All life is

Precious

And all forms of life respond to

Love

Pet Photography

Awards

Since becoming a professional photographer it’s been important to me to be a part of the photographic community and continue my professional and creative development.
I am an accredited member of the AIPP – The Australian Institute for Professional Photographers.
For the last 2 years, since the addition of the Pet/Animal category, I’ve entered my work into both the Victorian State level awards and National level awards. The awards are a great way for me to keep pushing myself creatively and also to receive acknowledgment and recognition for the professional level of photographic work I am producing.
