Reaching out through photography to pets in need of a home.


Recently, I donated my time to visit the Trenton Animal Shelter in NJ to photograph pets in need of adoption. The staff there was very friendly and accommodating - helping out to make my job photographing there a breeze. For more animals available for adoption from the shelter click here.

Better photographs help these beautiful animals to get adopted.  It's a known fact in the industry that the better photograph of a pet on, the better the chances of that pet being adopted.  That's why I'm doing what I can by donating my time and talent to help give these gentle animals a better chance at finding a loving home.

Here are some of the adorable animals in need that I met and enjoyed photographing...

Iris_#13 Iris_Kittens IRIS

Domestic Short Hair

Iris was friendly, curious and calm while being photographed for the shelter. Her kittens even woke up (except for the fellow in yellow) to say hello and explore their surroundings.







Pit Bull/ Terrier Mix

Pretty Bella was a real joy to photograph. Sweet, calm and playful. She loved playing with her rope toy as you can seeBellaAction .









Domestic Short Hair

She was no shy girl for her photo shoot. In fact, she actually seemed to enjoy having her picture taken as you can see from the photo on the right. Very calm and happy demeanor. She had all her "poses" at the ready when the camera shutter was snapping away!







Pit Bull Terrier

Brutus was a silly, funny guy. He was just so happy to be outside having tons of attention directed his way. It was hard to keep a camera pointed in his direction as he was always by my side unless he was chasing down his favorite toy. He just wanted to play, play, play!


Logan-1 Logan-5



Little Logan was all smiles and full of friendliness.  He enjoyed his walk and gave some great smiles to the camera!










Domestic Short Hair

Snow was a natural in front of the camera!  A quiet and curious girl who loved all the attention she received during her photo shoot and was quite the model!









American Bulldog - Pit Bull Terrier

Casper defined the word gentle.  He was such a sweetheart - enjoying the day and patiently posed for the camera!
