this is grey. he's a certified therapy dog, an aspiring doggie influencer, and the best friend a girl could ask for. although he can be a wild man at times, grey is the most incredible ambassador to his breed, and i'm so lucky to have such a wonderful gentle giant to share my heart and my home with. 

i refer to grey as my office manager, more in title than in practice. he may not be the most helpful employee, but he plays an important role in the process nonetheless.  he's never more than a few feet away from me as i spend hours at my desk behind the scenes, making every aspect of your experience run smoothly!

about me

hello, hello! i'm charlene, the lady behind the lens. i've had a camera in my hands for the past thirteen years, but perhaps more importantly: i'm a great dane mama, and i know exactly how crucial it is to document our furry family members' lives.

from grey's sweet, sleepy expression each morning to his afternoon sunbathing sessions in our yard, from his pre-lunchtime slobbers to his evening zoomies and every moment in between, i want every bit of him memorialized in photos. we are so lucky to have dogs, and professional portraits of them allow a small part of them to live on forever through artwork that will bring you joy each day.


i'm a helicopter dog mom. that blonde boy above is the center of my world. 

in my free time, you can find me reading a book & sipping on a vanilla chai. oh, or napping. i love napping.

my perfect night out? dinner & an escape room!

i'm a walking contradiction: a super laid-back perfectionist, a crazy-organized scatterbrain, and an introverted people-person. my job gives me balance in all of these things!

i'd love to work with you! click below to reach out & tell me about yourself and your pup!
