Your pup means the world to you.

Here’s your chance to show your pup to the world!

We all know that our pups are more than just pets – they are beloved members of our family. That’s why I’m thrilled to offer you the opportunity to celebrate your dog’s unique personality in a way that is truly unforgettable.

By registering for Tails of the World book, you’ll have the chance to showcase your dog’s individuality in stunning images that you will cherish for years to come. But that’s not all – half of your registration fee will also be donated to a charity that supports animals in need, the Charlevoix Area Humane Society.

What could be better than capturing beautiful, professional photos of your pup and making a positive impact on the world? You and your pup will not only have a blast at the photoshoot, but you’ll also be helping other animals in need through your donation.

And when your pup’s photo is featured in a beautiful international coffee-table style book, you’ll have a lasting reminder of the special bond you share with your pup, while also knowing that you helped make a difference in the lives of other animals.

Frequently asked questions

What if I have 2 (or more) pets? – Given our limited time in the Castle gardens each session is 25 minutes so it’s only for one pet.  If you have multiple pets please book 2 sessions back to back.  Or if you’d prefer, we could do a beach session instead of Castle Farms.  Contact for more info
Does  my dog need to be well trained?  LOL, heck no!  It does help if they know how to sit but I’m used to working with all kinds of dogs (including my own) that are not perfectly trained.
What if my dog needs to stay on a leash?  No worries, leashes can be erased out of most images.  Harnesses will most likely stay in the photo.  This goes for cats as well, they should be on leash if outdoors.  I also have some very long leashes that will allow for more movement while maintaining safety.
Can my cat be a part of the book?  Yes, as long as we can safely hold the photoshoot outdoors.  This goes for any kind of pet with a tail.
Can I be in the photos?  It depends.  The Tails of the World book will be featuring images of just the pets and given the shorter session time we may not have the chance to include humans in the images.  But I will if we can.
Is the book included in my registration?  No, as the publishing of the book is out of my hands and the full registration fee is being donated to charity a copy of the book is not included.  You will be able to purchase copies of the book when they are available in late 2023.  The estimated cost per book is $100.
Do I get to choose which photo goes in the book?  

To get a good variety of images for my portfolio in the Tails of the World book I’ll be selecting the image from your photoshoot.  And the will be the image included in your registration fee.

Do I have to buy additional images or artwork?  No, but fair warning, you’ll want to!  You’ll have a variety of images to choose from, and they start at $250 each.  Most clients spend between $800 and $2000.
