Giving Back to the Animal Rescue Community

One of the joys I get from being a pet photographer is being able to help shelter animals find permanent homes by taking great photos of them. Research has shown that better photos equal more adoptions. So, I am constantly volunteering my time photographing the wonderful dogs and cats in rescue groups and shelters throughout South Florida. You will see plenty photos of shelter animals up for adoption on this site.

But shelters need money too. Almost all animal rescue groups are non-profits and rely exclusively on donations. So to support them in this way as well I will donate $25 from each pet portrait session to a local animal rescue group. Some of my favorite groups to donate to are:

Miami-Dade Animal Services –

Dogs on the Move –

Operation Paw –

South Florida Animal Rescue Network –

Paws 4 You Rescue –

The Cat Network –

Humane Society of Greater Miami –

So, when you get your pet portraits you are also helping to save an animal’s life! Call or email today to book your session. (305) 926-1429 or

I am also available as my time allows to help rescue groups by volunteering my photography services. Please contact me at for more information.

In October of 2013 I became a member of Hearts Speak, whose mission is to save the lives of animals in need by supporting artists, animal welfare organizations and communities.

Because of the volume of rescue work that I do I started a separate social media account to share and network all the animals I photograph. You can follow me there at on Facebook and Instagram.
