“The one absolute, unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world
–the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous–is his dog.”

~ The Trial of Old Drum

Dogs are our kindred spirits.  They are the best friends who so often come into our lives when we need it most.

Dogs touch our souls deep, lasting, and lingering.

As one of the first premier pet photographers in Eastern Washington (Spokane, Spokane Valley, Deer Park), Touched By a Dog Photography visually captures the bond between dog and owner, to honor and preserve it for decades.  

Prior to photography, I was a professional interior designer working with a number of home builders in the Spokane area.  Thus, my background is heavy in the arts and my photography reflects artful imagery. 

In addition, I am a 2nd generation dog trainer.  I have been competing with my own dogs for 16 years now while simultaneously teaching classes at a local dog training club or with private clients.  I join training seminars whenever possible so that my abilities to read dog behavior is continually expanding.  This means that my client’s dogs get expert care when they are at a photo session.  I can work with any dog.

Since September 2019, I have added digital painting to my repertoire, tutoring under a Master Artist.  This has allowed me to further my product offerings to all of my clients with unique, painted canvas of your pet(s). 

I am currently pursuing professional print competitions in order to push my skills and perhaps attain a Master Photographer designation.  I do this not only for myself, but for the benefit of every client.  I give my all because our memories are more than worth it.     


It’s time to create your dog’s story…

Why choose Touched By a Dog Photography for your dog’s session?

Touched By A Dog precisely focuses on your dog’s personality. I want you to see the face and expression of the companion who captivates your heart. As a dog trainer who has spent 36 years in the world of dog sports, I know canine behavior thoroughly. I have the skills to work with all kinds of dogs regardless of their temperament or knowledge of obedience commands. Touched By a Dog also exclusively offers interior design expertise in the selection and coordination of wall art galleries. There are very few photographers who offer that expertise. A mastery in the arts and dog know-how combine to give you an incredibly unique experience. We all have photos taken of our families, weddings, births, anniversaries, graduations. Why not our dogs, too? They are family, after all.
