About me

animal lover extraordinaire

Okay, I admit it. I’m one of those people who stops you as you are walking your dog so I can say hello – to your dog! I love animals, all animals in fact.  ( .. well maybe not mosquitoes… )

Photographing animals is not without it’s challenges; it requires love, patience, love, quick reflexes, love and an understanding of animal behaviour. (It’s not unlike photographing toddlers actually… ha!).

I encourage you to take a peek at my galleries and then reach out to me so that we can plan something special!

I enjoy giving back to the community by volunteering for animal related charities. I photograph adoptable animals and events for rescue organizations. Don’t hesitate to call me if your organization needs a professional pet photographer


I am passionate about what I do and I’m always eager to learn more. I participate in photography workshops and courses every year. Images I have created of pets and wildlife have earned National and Provincial awards. 


Accredited photographers possess the experience, knowledge and equipment to be considered a specialist in their chosen field. I have earned my photography accreditation in multiple specialties from the PPOC. 


I volunteer and support local animal rescue organizations. You will find me photographing adoptable pets that need homes, donating sessions/artwork to fundraisers and decorating shelters with wall art.

My boys are getting quite old and I wanted some memories of them before it was too late. My one dog, Dallas, is not the easiest dog to photograph out of his familiar space. Heidi was SO PATIENT! I really wanted a photo of my boys together.... and boy, did she get those shots!
She captured my boy's personalities, got incredible individual shots and now I have the most beautiful album you'll ever see!

I was pretty sure that there wasn’t a photographer who would be able to get a great photo of my beloved, old and somewhat infirm dog. Loki can’t stand for very long, has lost his interest in toys and mostly just likes to snooze. I couldn’t have been more wrong about his photo session!
Heidi was able to capture Loki’s essence and get quite a variety of expressions true to my old dog. She didn’t get just one stunning photo, but a great many. I am so grateful. He isn’t going to be with us for all that much longer, and having these wonderful photos of him is something I am always going to treasure.

She took amazing care of me and my horse, walking us through the steps to get the perfect photos of my girl!
She is professional, kind and welcoming! I’ve never seen anyone handle both the people and animals quite as well as Heidi.

I rescued my dog from a shelter. Not even a month later I decided to get her portrait taken. Nezza didn't know her name yet and she was very nervous.
Heidi was SO patient with her. Heidi kept coming up with different ideas. She never gave up and was able to get some beautiful portraits of Nezza!
I look forward to our next session. A definite 5 star rating from me!
