Welcome! I  am an award winning fine art photographer with an unbridled passion for capturing the open, vulnerable honesty of the animals that we choose to share our lives, and some of us even our beds, with. With pet photography studios in both Western and Northern Michigan I am able to photograph beloved dogs, cats, birds and more throughout the state and beyond. If you are looking for a photographer that will do anything to get that special, soul capturing shot of your loved one let’s book a session!

Pet Friendly

I come well stocked with oodles of praise, treats, toys and patience, and of course always lots of water!

Pet Approved

Safety First

I work closely with pet parents to ensure the pet's safety and comfort remain the priority!

Without Sacrificing Fun!

Creating Memories

Our pet children rarely last as long as we would like. Capture the memories while you can!

To Last a Lifetime

On Location

We work together to capture your pet's personality in the perfect work of art for your home.

What to Expect

  • Expect me to get down and dirtier than your pet
  • Expect me to do whatever it takes to get the shot
  • Expect lots of treats, toys and praise
  • Expect to have fun and for your companion to go home feeling like royalty
  • Expect pieces of art rather than snapshots or canned images
  • Expect me to listen when you give me advice and suggestions
  • Expect me to spoil your pet as much as I spoil my own
  • Expect patience and know that you will need a little as well
  • Expect the session to take time your pet sets the schedule
  • Do not expect your pet to be perfect, perfection is having fun and being yourself
It isn’t about getting the photo it is about telling the story of your loved one through their eyes. Every session is a fun  frolic designed around your pet’s comfort and training level, Safety edges out, only slightly fun. I use a combination of patience and decades of experience behind the camera and in front of the computer (to rid pesky leashes and other unwanted objects from the frame) to capture your pets soul and to create and incredible artwork you will treasure forever.
Calm and patient wins the day. Our pets are so tuned in to those around them a calm and centered mind is utmost to creating a safe and fun environment in which your furry friend’s personality can shine. I would never shortchange a setting by bringing anything less.
If we don’t get the shot the first time out we shall try, try again, at no cost to you.
You know your pets way better than I do. As passionate as I am about animals and my desire to reach their souls, I will never know in a few hours time the volumes that you have learned about your best friend’s personality. I strive to capture the best image of how you see your pet. I look forward to collaborating and strongly consider your input at every step of the process.

If we could read the minds of animals we would find only truths. Anthony Douglas Williams

Such a local gem we have here in Western Michigan. Dog Star Ranch is everything a working dog owner needs under one roof.

Tessie Spreads Some Cheer

Sweet Gracie

This sweet girl was more interested in giving me hugs and kisses than she was in getting her photo taken, but we kept at it. Between lots of hugs and kisses breaks Gracie

Happy Holidays!
