Billie and Josh

The first time I went to the Auckland SPCA Animal Hospital at Mangere, I came home with a 6 week old sick kitten.  He is now a 9 year old grumpy lazy cat called Napoleon Dynamite.  The second time I went to the same animal hospital, I came home with Nixie Lix. I love a good sad story as much as the next person however I love a good happy story even more.  Stories of rescue and adoption see tears well up in my eyes and a huge smile spread across my face.  Animals make houses homes and I believe every home should have an extra four legs (or more!). My time is available to organisations involved in the rescue and care of animals at no charge. Sing out if you need my help or if there is anything that I can do to assist you.  And thank you – for everything you do for the animals x


But wait, there’s more …

From the 1st of May 2015, $15.00 from every Pet Photography Session will be donated to my chosen charity: Chained Dog Awareness in New Zealand.


if you are organising a fundraiser and would like a photographer or photobooth

if you are holding a charity auction and would like a gift voucher

if you are creating publicity, needing adoption photos or want to use an image

then please contact me as I’d love to help.

And still more … PawTraits Sessions

Our pets very quickly wiggle their way into our homes, our lives and our hearts.  A Pet Photography Session provides a lasting and unique memory of the love we share with those animals but I know, that for some, a Pet Photography Session is a luxury expense that is out of each.  From Autumn through to Spring I run a Givealittle cause for PawTraits sessions.  You nominate the families, we raise the travel funds and I make the sessions happen.

Read some of the inspirational stories of family, love and rescue.
