Giving Back

Giving back to help save lives

Photography is a powerful tool

As a dedicated animal advocate, I strongly believe in giving back, particularly when it comes to assisting pets in need. Over the years, I've been intimately involved in rescuing both dogs and horses – pet advocacy is a fundamental part of who I am. This commitment naturally extends to my photography work. In recent years, I've made it a priority to dedicate a portion of my time and resources to volunteering my photography services to aid dogs in need.

As a passionate animal lover and professional photographer, there's immense satisfaction in capturing stunning portraits of rescue dogs. Whether highlighting their unique personalities, their moments of joy, or the challenges they may face, I'm honored to play a role in helping these dogs find their forever homes.


"It's not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving."

– Mother Teresa

Raising money for pet rescue around the world

Honored to have been selected as an official fundraising photographer for the Tails of the World book project

What is Tails of the World?

Tails of the World is a collaborative project from professional pet photographers all around the globe. We've united to help raise funds for pet rescue and spread joy with beautiful photography and heartwarming stories – all combined into a beautiful coffee table book.

100% of proceeds from the sales of the book will be donated to animal rescue. These books will be available to purchase worldwide.

In 2023 I photographed ten dogs from the Missoula area. The session fees from those shoots were donated to Montana Pittie Project. Each of those ten dogs will be featured in the Tails of the World Volume 2 book that will be released in March 2024. All sales proceeds of the book will be donated to Second Chance Animal Rescue. 

As of the beginning of February 2024, Tails of the World Volume 2 has raised over $65,000 for rescue charities around the globe, W-O-W!!!!

Tails of the World, volume 2 book is officially available for purchase!

Hardcover edition available now on Amazon!
