"You will lose your mind in rescue.....

...But you will find your SOUL."

"Finally Saved"| This photograph means the world to me. This is Asia, a 10 month old boxer with demodex mange so frightfully progressed she had NO hair and was completely pink. Last Chance at Life All Breed Animal Rescue stepped in and rescued her. Asia is now adopted, healthy, happy, and covered in white fur!

Why I Rescue:

Capturing the light and love that a rescue animal has within them is my first and strongest passion. Being able to use my lens to capture the perfect snapshots of their unique personality to help find them their forever home... there are no words. 

It's an honor to say the least.


All of my pack (there are 4!) are rescue dogs.  

Meet Orion! This, now adopted, rescue doberman puppy was dumped with his brother because he was blind in one eye. His brother was blind in both. I fostered these two handsome and loving boys until Last Chance at Life found their furever homes.

#Adoptdontshop! There is nothing more rewarding then giving a voice to the voiceless. By giving these abandoned sweethearts a professional photo to share, this will give them an immensely greater chance to get adopted. This is because with my professional photos potential adopters get to see the TRUE spirit of the dog.

As you can tell I am a huge advocate of adoption! But no matter what…  one of the most important thing in life is to love, kiss, and hold your furbabies for as long as you can. So, buy the extra dog toy, spoil them with treats, and take your fur baby on the trip. We outlive our best furry friends - So every second spent with them is priceless. So book the photo session to capture all those truly special moments and make them last a lifetime.

The Rescues!

Marley's Mutts

(Camp Golden Years)

Marley’s Mutts is a non-profit organization that rescues, rehabilitates, trains and re-homes death row dogs from Kern County’s high-kill animal shelters. In addition, they utilize the rescued dogs to transform people’s lives through a program called Pawsitive Change. Through the power of the human-canine bond, they  empower dogs and people to live healthy, happy and productive lives. They have a small and older dog camp on their ranch as well called Camp Golden Years! I volunteer my time and drive the 6 hours because I truly believe in the programs that Zach Skow and his family have created!

This photo is of the sweet Aaliyah & myself before she passed. She is a perfect example of the work MM does! She got to live the rest of her life feeling loved and cared for!

Myself & Zeus in 2017 at Last Chance at Life's shelter. Little bit of snuggle time before the photoshoot!

Last Chance at Life All Breed Animal Rescue & Adoption

Last Chance at Life, also known as LCAL, is one of my favorite rescues in southern California. I am blessed to have worked with them for 5+ years now! I volunteer my time and photography to LCAL because of their relentless hard work to raise money for medical and behavioral needs dogs. Their work to find these disregarded animals love, health, and happiness is inspiring.  These dogs would have otherwise been put down without #TeamLCAL.
