Welcome! 

I love capturing light and moments. 

I truly believe in the power of a photo to inspire, educate, and build awareness. I am a volunteer photographer at Richmond Animal Care and Control (RACC) and believe every animal deserves a respectful portrait revealing his or her special personality. My photos are used for online pet profiles and social media posts. They have appeared in NPR.org articles and in award-winning advertisements. If you are in Richmond, you might see them on a billboard campaign promoting RACC! I am a contributing photographer to the book 101 Pit Bulls, Volume II by Kelly Blanchard and am working on a book featuring rescue pets living their best lives in Richmond now!

I am a proud member of HeARTs Speak, a tremendous nonprofit dedicated to using art to raise awareness for homeless pets. 

I was honored to have one of my images selected as a "Top 25" in the "Pets and Their People" Category of the 2019 International Pet Photographer of the Year contest! 

 

In addition to photography, I love the crisp air of fall, Canada (my home country), Richmond (my too-hot adopted home), sunshine, being on or near water, and spending time with my (very patient) husband and our house full of rescue animals. 

Thanks for visiting my site! I'd love to hear from you!
