There once was a girl who loved a dog....

That is how the tale of this journey began.  Hi, I am Janet; an artist, professional and proud dog mama living in Kitsilano.  I could tell you that I am a graduate from the Langara College Photography Program (and I am) but here's what I really want you to know:  My Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mix, Bandit rescued me back in 2006.  We met through a chain link fence at the SPCA and it was love at first site.  How could I resist his adorable underbite? Together we've had a wonderful life together.  We've explored and frolicked at too many off leash parks and dog beaches to count, and had memorable adventures at hiking trails, lakes, and the majestic Pacific Ocean.  I am in awe of the pure joy that is ignited in a playing dog; the freedom to run and explore and live completely in the moment.  This is where my love for photography began; in capturing Bandit and all his furry friends living life to the fullest. To be able to combine my passion for photography and animals with the breathtaking beauty of Vancouver is such a dream come true. Bandit is now an old and adorable senior. In June 2018 we adopted Ivy, a curious green eyed Calico, from the SPCA. Our little family is content.  All of us have a tale to tell and so do our beloved pets.  Let me capture them in their happy place...
