When I completed university, my Dad gave me my first camera. And that's when my love of photography began.

Combining my two passions (animals and photography) seemed like the perfect pairing.. That evolved to include children  - capturing their essence and spontaneity.  And the natural transition to photograph family moments (big or small).

Please have a look at the photos on my website. And, If I can be of assistance to capture your special someone (two legged or four legged!), please contact me. I live in the Uxbridge area and service just about anywhere.


  I can't recall ever being without animals by my side.  A donkey named Sam and a cow named Rosie were part of my childhood years on our farm. 

But always, always dogs. There isn't a photo of me without a dog. Even at my wedding, my dog was our ring bearer.  I currently have three awesome four- legged fur friends: River, Echo and Tonka.


I believe I have  always had an affinity with animals.  I became a professional pet dog trainer.  I hosted a television series with one of my incredible dogs, and even became a recognized Volunteer Canine Search and Rescue team with my Springer Spaniel, River.  And currently I am handling our 18 month Black Lab through Hunt Tests as we ready ourselves for Masters.
