Officially Voted the Best Pet Photographer in San Diego, 2014-2017, by the San Diego A-List.

Dog Photography Featured in International Style Blogs

It’s been a big few weeks here at the San Diego studio, and I’m beyond thrilled to announce that while I’ve been working away here, several international pet style blogs have been recognizing & featuring my work! That’s right, my photography of dogs & their owners has been spotlighted by various blogs & magazines across the world recently! This is exciting because these are blogs that I used to read & browse back when I first started my business… so it’s pretty surreal to see my pet photography work featured there, as an example to people just starting their businesses! Not to mention having it seen by the pet product designers & industry leaders that also peruse these blogs… I’m really just honored & flattered that my work is up to par with these sites’ high standards. But – enough talking, check it out for yourself!


First up: Itty Bitty & Fluffy is a UK-based blog that featured my session with Socrates the labradoodle several weeks ago. They must have gotten a great reaction to that post, because – completely out of the blue – they took a dip into my blog archives and spotted my session with Gus the hound mix! So they requested to feature Gus, and now his sweet face is gracing their site! You can see their whole post about Gus here. Here are a few screenshots:

Gus has a wonderful story behind his adoption, and Itty Bitty & Fluffy interviewed me about it. You can read it all on their site.

I LOVE the photos they chose to feature!

Yay, Gus! :)


Another incredibly special spotlight to me features none other than the fabulous Daly, a mixed-breed dog with whom I was honored to share two different sessions. A fabulous blog called The Daily Dog Tag contacted me after I posted on my Facebook page that I photographed Daly twice, and they asked me if they could feature BOTH sessions on their blog! So of course I obliged. And get this – they also wanted Daly’s mom’s input for the post, so she even got to write a bit of Daly’s history and rescue background for the feature! Read both of our interviews here.

  This is a fun blog – they feature new pet products & adoptable dogs all the time!

Yay Daly!  :)


The pug lovers out there will enjoy this next feature! It’s Mr. Big, a goofy little guy with a too-big tongue. And this session was spotlighted by a great blog named Hair of the Dog, which is different than the above blogs because it’s specifically aimed at pet photographers. It’s a fantastic educational resource on running a pet photography business, so being featured here means exposing myself to the savvy eyes of my colleagues, as well as standing up as an example to beginners with fledgling businesses. It’s a different type of honor, and certainly just as humbling. See my interview & photos on their site by clicking here.

That tongue… it gets me every time.

I even got a small bio at the end of the feature! Too cool. Yay Mr. Big! :)


I actually have several more blogs to share with you – but for now, I’ve got to run off and scout Coronado for an upcoming session! So it looks like those will have to wait for another day… I hope you visit each of these sites and poke around a bit! They’re storehouses of incredible photography and great interviews, and even though you’re (probably) not a pet photographer, I’m sure you can find something you’ll like. Here are the quick links: Itty Bitty & Fluffy, The Daily Dog Tag, and Hair of the Dog. Enjoy! :)
