Hello & Welcome

 

To My World Of Dog. 

  

 

If I were to begin to explain the connection I have with animals, dogs in particular, I´d be deemed crazy. It is an overwhelming love & mutual respect for one another. It is my purpose in life to speak on their behalf, be the voice & honour their graceful, perfect souls by taking images that will remind us all of this pure love forever. 

I have been taking photos professionally for the last 8 years. I began Dog Meets Girl as a creative outlet to share my love for all things dog! This platform has since become a Lifestyle Brand & initiative to help dogs in need! I do this by donating a portion of my income to Dog charities around South Africa.

My journey with photographing dogs has afforded me the opportunity to work with some of South Africa’s most talented artists & their superstar pooches. Namely Musician Francois Van Coke, TV Personality Liezel van Der Westhuizen & Actor Neels Van Jaarsveld. I have also been featured in animal magazines like Pet Prints & AnimalTalk. 

Partnering up with exceptional brands such as WOOLWORTHS, BENJI & MOON, WAGWORLD, URBAN PAWS, FRIENDSHIP COLLAR, FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT & RECENTLY THE BEACH HOUSE COLLECTION has been a wonderful & fruitful experience & I look forward to many years together going forward!

Dog Meets Girl has earned International status after shooting in Oslo, Norway in 2016 where we developed a strong bond with Norwegian pooches & their humans. 

Working with dogs feeds my soul and I want to photograph as many dogs as possible. I want to share the beauty that exists within each dog with the world by living the best for my dog & sharing my viewpoint to my followers. DOGS ARE FAMILY! Live well & adventure with your dog, everyday!
