Do you love giving back?
so do I! Here is how your sessions help our local community!

I've always been passionate about lending a helping paw to the numerous local non-profits that help so many animals in need in our community.  With your help by booking sessions and participating in our quarterly fundraising events, we can keep lending those great causes a greatly needed helping paw.

hearts speak

My adopted furkids inspired me to become a professional pet photographer and capture the beautiful journeys of other unique pets and their favorite humans.  Being rescue felines, they also inspired me to join Hearts Speak.  An organization dedicated to lending a helping paw to local rescue groups to ensure that no shelter pet goes unseen.  For me, this means donating my skill and time to photograph adoptable furkids seeking their happy tails to help increase their odds of adoption by 60%.  

 If you're a local rescue group who could use a helping paw with photos, be sure to give me a bark below!

PS If you'd like to see me in action - be sure to check out this video from Shaw Go! West Coast did in 2015 of me behind the scenes!


featured charity

My featured charity program is a passion of mine. Each quarter, I chose an excellent local animal rescue or charity to use a helping paw. Lending them that unique helping paw is possible only with your help. That is because, during that quarter, 10% of all sessions and artwork sales get donated back to this great cause!

During that time, I also share more information about them with you online and how you can lend them a helping paw. I also try to put together a Passion Paws Photo Fundraising Event each quarter with a fun theme with partial proceeds going to them whenever possible.

If you're a local animal rescue or charity that needs a helping paw and you'd like to become a part of my featured charity program, be sure to give me a bark at the link below!

silent auction donation

Who doesn't love a fabulous silent auction event?! Every year I try to lend a helping paw to as many local animal rescue groups and non-profits with their silent auction fundraising events by donating items for auction as possible. I also let everyone know about the event and other ways to participate or lend a helping paw! So if you are a local animal non-profit or rescue with an upcoming silent auction and need items for it, be sure to give me a bark!
