Fur Family Photos - Los Angeles, CA
Ten years ago I left the comfort of the corporate world (I was in international marketing at 20th Century Fox) to pursue photography. Up until 2017, my efforts were focused more on live music, events, and portraiture (humans), but in the summer of 2017 I took a position as lead photographer for a company that focused on pets, and I realized that was my true calling. Animals have always been a true love of mine, and once I started working with pets it became very clear to me that this is what I’m meant to be doing! That company closed, so I struck out on my own, and Fur Family Photos was born in the summer of 2018.
My love and respect for animals has always played an important role in my life. I appreciate the unique qualities of each individual, and I truly love having the ability to connect with them to capture the essence of who they are. Hearing you say, "yes, you nailed it! That's my baby, right there!" makes my heart sing.
My passion for capturing the personality of our furry friends started when I was 7 years old. Our dog Missy had puppies, and I was hopelessly in love with one particular puppy that I named “Cuddles.” I spent every waking moment I could with him, but knew that our time together was going to be short. I had just received my first little point and shoot camera, and I wanted to remember his unique personality before he went to his forever home. It became my mission to capture images that truly spoke to who he was, and what he meant to me (see image below). I love that I now provide that kind of imagery for others.
My 2 dogs (Lulu and Kikay) remind me every day how profound our love & connection with our fur family is. It means so much to me that I can play a part in celebrating the legacy of your fur family.
Animals deserve to be honored, and I love that I get to do just that.

I feel that I’m being of service by doing what I do. For those of us who love our pets like family members it’s incredibly meaningful to have images that we can look back on 20 years from now that truly speak to their personality and that can bring us right back to what it was like to be with them. It’s what I truly love about what I do - that I’m able to give that precious gift to my clients
