Creating art for dogs, horses and their people in the greater Missoula, MT & Nampa, ID areas





                                  (and Togo)

Hi! I'm the face behind the camera. 

I'm also a wife (and lucky to be married to the love of my life - a man I have known since I was ten years old) and mom to a young adult daughter who is the light of my life. I share my heart and home with three Border Collies who keep me on my toes, and have an Arabian horse who brings incredible joy to my world. I love coffee, camping, walking on a sandy beach and hiking in the mountains. 

Let the fun begin!


The part of a session I most look forward to is the portrait reveal and ordering session. I get so excited to share the gorgeous images captured of your beloved fur-ever friend! It is such a joy to discover which portraits you select as your favorites. 


Then we curate how those images will be showcased in your home. Whether featured as a wall piece, included in an heirloom quality artisan album, a beautiful desktop display, or digital files for sharing on your favorite social media site or breeder's website, this is truly the highlight! Well, at least until it is overshadowed by the main event when your images and products are delivered! : )

I am proud to offer a collection of the highest quality portrait products in the industry, from artisan albums of all sizes to display options that complement any home decor. I dedicate myself to creating a personal, custom experience in order to surpass your portrait photography expectations.

Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed.

Credit card payments and flexible, interest-free payment plans are available.


Over the years I have curated my product offerings by selecting a combination of my clients' most popular selections along with my personal favorites. Which products will you select to showcase your pet?
