How it starts:
You adore your dog? You can't stop thinking of your horse? Your kitty is just adorable! You know you have the most amazing animal of Earth.
You have decided to have some special moments captured for life? You know their time on Earth is so limited and every moment so very precious.
Well, you have come to the right place.
As a dog owner and a horse lover, I truly understand what it means and how memories one can capture can make your heart skip a beat and eyes tear up. I would love to be that person. Candid moments of gentle affection or posed photographs of you and your best friend is something I specialize in.
Once you make a decision on the type of package and have a few ideas on what you would like to get, please get in touch with me and we can further talk and bring your ideas and my suggestion to life!
How to get ready for a photo session:
We will discuss your expectations. We will talk wardrobe. We will choose location(s).
I love unique places, lakes, forests, old barns. We can start from your house (depending on the package you select) and then head out. It is a very casual atmosphere where we stroll, chat and with my direction, we take photos that are candid and posed. As we do this, in my head I am creating a story of you and your best friend. I am looking for special moments and lovely background.
Sometimes, I add snow or rain, sometimes I blur out and remove unwanted objects. After our photo session, I do spend hours creating what I had envisioned in my head.
I will be sending you a few teasers as I am working on your images. I just can't resist and not share!
In the end, I will provide you with a link to your personal gallery. From there, you will be able to select your favourite images and download high resolution files. You also have the option of selecting the print you want! Options are so vast, so please talk to me if you decide to order more products.
I truly appreciate your credits when sharing the photographs. For a review on my Facebook Page, you will get three free digital files!

Gear used in our photo sessions:
I pack heavy! These thing are heavier than rocks.
For those who care about the technicalities and about gear, here is the brief story. Others will probably yawn at all the name calling.
Years ago, I started with the very basic Nikon DSLR (Nikon 3100) and over the years, accumulated and improved on the quality of my gear. The reason I did that is to also improve on the quality of images I provide, the sharpness, the colour, it all just gets better...
I presently have three full frame cameras: Nikon D5, Nikon D750 and Nikon D610. I also have a crop frame Nikon D7000 that I like to use combined with a zoom lens Nikkor 70-300mm VR just in case I am trying to reach far and capture deer wandering around our property or a bird I see in a distance in a tree. Lately, it has been accumulating dust. I suppose I haven't seen many deer around the house (coyotes I have). My focus has completely switched to dogs and horses.
For quality, nothing beats my favourite camera, Nikon D5! THAT CAMERA I LOVE! It is a work-horse I take everywhere and have complete trust it will make my job easier. I use it coupled with my favourite zoom lens, Nikkor 70-200mm 2.8VR or wide angle Nikkor 24-70mm 2.8. I also use it to build my arm muscles :)
Sometimes, I like to play with micro, and for that purpose I use the amazingly sharp prime Nikkor 105mm 2.8 or Nikkor 50mm 1.2 AIS. That is when I feel a bit creative and want to be up close and personal with a bug or my dog's eyes.
My back-up body is Nikon D750, an amazing and capable camera, light in weight but never disappointing in results.
Every day is a learning curve and the more I shoot, the more I learn, grown and develop my own unique style.
