Whether your best friend is a puppy, adult or senior dog, always remember that you rescued their hearts but they captured yours. This is why I am so passionate about recognizing that very special and intimate dog-human bond through my award winning photography.

During editing, these special moments are revealed time and again. I discover them like hidden treasures within the photo sessions. Then, when I present my artist’s picks to you, we will view together the unique and loving personality of your loyal, furry companion in stunning, emotive imagery.

I’m here to answer any questions you have about creating lasting, endearing photos of your very own Good Doggy. I would love to hear about your dog and get to know them.

Dogs are family. I’m excited to create some memorable family photos together!

Reserve your dog’s photo session

With warm regards,

Beautiful memories are created with every Good Doggy in our lives. Moments with our dogs are some of the most precious moments we experience on this earth. The love that we give and receive, to and from our canine companions, truly sustains us in life. They are our best and truest friends.

⌘ Capturing your dog’s true spirit and personality in beautiful, timeless, jaw-dropping photography makes me indescribably happy.

⌘ Photographing dogs who are genuinely loved and honored by their families fills my heart with great joy.

⌘ You might say I am a bit crazy in love with dogs in general!

It’s a true blessing to love what I do and do what I love.

The Good Doggy Family

My first good doggy was Audrey. A rescue dog who rescued us, you’ll find her silhouette lovingly immortalized in my logo and her sweet manner in Good Doggy Photography’s name. She came into my life before I took up pet photography. To this day, I wish I had photos that truly captured her tender nature and her zest for life.

Crazy for tennis balls, Audrey would find them in the most unlikely places and balance them perfectly on her nose. You’ll find tennis balls across my web site, too, in memory of her.

Audrey crossed the rainbow bridge way too young, taken from us by cancer at only six-years old. After she was gone and we had so few images to remind us of her, I was inspired to seize the day and savor every canine moment I could in pictures. This is how Good Doggy Photography, and my unending quest to take soulful and enduring pet pictures, was born.

Frannie is a rescue dog who came into our lives like a ray of sunshine. She enjoys long walks and gardening with us at our little farmhouse in the woods. She lies near my desk while I edit pictures and greets clients when they come to our door. She’s even a good sailor, happily watching the world go by from our canoe as we navigate around the local waterways. She is my muse, inspiring me each and every day with her happy smile, loving personality and enthusiasm for life. She’s likely the most photographed dog I know!

Frannie and I scout out Good Doggy photo shoot locations together. If you like the glorious scenes of nature that are the backdrop to my photos, you can thank Frannie for finding all the intriguing outdoor spots dogs truly love!
