Pawdacious Portraits

Specialized pet photographer serving southeastern Michigan – Oakland, Washtenaw, Livingston, Wayne, and Monroe counties. 

The first photographs I ever took were of my cat, Smokey. Poor, patient, Smokey. My skills have improved dramatically since that first shot, but my passion for taking photographs of animals has never wavered. Along the way, I incorporated my other passions as well – photographing landscapes, travel, and models. Some of my travel and nature photography has been published in Fodors, Conde Nast Traveler, Hertz social media campaigns, Huffington Post, and used by P.F. Changs and Google. But I always came back to animals and now I’m thrilled to be a specialized pet photographer.

I get to meet fabulous people and pets, get to know them, see their relationship with their families, and then leave them with pieces of art that they will treasure and enjoy for many years.
