Thanks for dropping by,
I’m Rachel, pet lover and photographer.
In short I am a Pet Photographer mainly covering the Ashburton region; but also branching out into other areas when requested.
Having grown up in rural Waikato, I’ve always had a passion for animals. I can’t remember a time when animals weren’t a part of my life. I’ve also been taking photographs forever.
A lot of my clients say I have the patience of a saint, as you know the saying; never work with animals or children. I know how to take the time and care with animals and pride myself on natural photographs of your best friend.
My style is natural in all aspects, I love capturing your pet in their happy places outdoors in nature, enjoying the wonderful areas this country has to offer. My photographs are also natural in the way that I will not force your pet to lay down a certain way or sit up on a log etc. if that is just not them or what they are comfortable with. Capturing your pet as naturally as possible is my goal - with a big grin too!
Treats and/or toys as well as some breaks along the way; and of course patience, is all I need.

Meet Your Photographer, Rachel!
My love for photography started when I was young and I love capturing animals with all their quirks. Working with pet lovers has been a dream come true and there’s nothing quite like photographing the personality of pets throughout various stages of their lives.
Capture Lasting Memories
Our pets are family. So let's capture some special keepsakes of them to treasure forever!
As an animal lover, I know that every animal has its own distinct personality and my aim is to capture that personality. I can have as much or as little involvement as you’d like, from conceptualising and producing the shoot or recommending locations for the photoshoot. I also love capturing spontaneous moments and will be on watch to get those in-the-moment shots that truly reflect your critter’s personality. I am prepared for any situation and will ensure things run smoothly, so we get those beautiful shots you’re after!
