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.

The $100 session fee from each of my Tails of the World Mini Sessions will be donated to the Montana Pittie Project. Book proceeds will be donated to Second Chance Animal Rescue.



100% of proceeds donated to animal rescue!

In 2022, professional pet photographers around the world united to raise over $25,000 for animal rescue by publishing Tails of the World.
