Who is that woman behind the camera?
Hi there! Thanks for dropping in.
I'm a part-time photographer living in Calgary. I work five days a week as a Digital Producer so that leaves evenings and weekends to do what I love most.
Specifically, photographing pets, rescue animals, horses and the humans that love them.
I’m not happy until I know I’ve captured the personality behind the fur/face. When that moment comes it’s like fireworks going off in my heart.
Speaking of hearts, what fills mine is …
I'm a life-long animal lover and my heart breaks when I think of them being abandoned, mistreated or neglected. In 2017 I became a volunteer for Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS). I offer my time to help rescued animals find the love-filled homes they all deserve. The demand seems endless and it blows me away to see how many animals AARCS helps on a daily basis. I'm proud to be part of an incredible team of people dedicated to saving thousands of dogs and cats in Alberta and neighbouring provinces each year. Visit my Rescue Animals page to learn more.

A lot of my photos are of a certain little white dog. That's Allie and she's my muse (as long as she knows she's getting treats at the end of our sessions). In December 2017 we adopted a silver-white tabby kitten named Otto (Boron) from AARCS. Then in May 2018 we adopted another AARCS rescue — a little ginger fellow named Oliver (Jumanji), so expect to see lots of shots of them throughout this site as well.
At this time, I'm not booking photo sessions.
I am hoping to open some later in 2019. Stay tuned.
That's me in a nutshell. If you're into social media, you can find me via the links below. Oh, and send me a message — I'd love to hear from you!
