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.

In 2023, Tails of the World Volume 2 raised over $65,000 for rescue charities around the globe, W-O-W!!!!

In 2023, I photographed ten dogs from the Missoula area for the Tails of the World Volume 2 book, released in March 2024. The session fees from these shoots were donated to the Montana Pittie Project, and all sales proceeds from the book will be donated to Second Chance Animal Rescue. 100% of the proceeds from both the sessions and book sales are dedicated to animal rescue efforts. These books are now available for purchase worldwide.

Support animal rescue with a limited edition Tails of the World portrait session.
In 2024, I will be photographing 10 dogs in the Treasure Valley (Boise, Eagle, Kuna, Middleton, Nampa, Caldwell and surrounding areas), for the Tails of the World Volume 3 book. 

Shannon was kind, caring, and made me feel so comfortable! I was IN SHOCK with how amazing the photos looked! I could look at them all day and never get bored of seeing their beauty. I'm looking forward to having lifelong memories of my best buddy, Rico. I had such a great experience working with Shannon.


We appreciated how Shannon engaged with our dog during the session; both for how it helped us and our pup feel more comfortable, and for how it helped her to find our pup's best reaction and angles. We were blown away when we saw the photos for the first time. We were amazed how well she was able to capture our dog's personality in each photo. We're looking forward to sharing the photos with our friends and family, and will certainly be recommending her services to them.

Such an amazing experience! I've never participated in a professional photo session before, let alone one for a pet. Shannon is absolutely incredible. Her kindness and enthusiasm made the session so inviting; and she actually took the time to get to know me and my dog. When I first saw the photographs, I cried! They are even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined! Shannon is such an amazing person and artist; I will definitely choose her for future portrait sessions!
