What you'll do
Welcome to the high desert! Many folks are unaware that dogs are not allowed on the trails in Joshua Tree National Park until they arrive. If you are like me and you can't imagine hiking without your furry friend/s, that's a huge bummer. But you are in luck because I've spent the last few years seeking out the best dog-friendly hiking trails in the high desert! On top of that, I'm a professional people and pet photographer, so not only will you have the opportunity to explore some of the most scenic and breathtaking off-beaten hiking trails near Joshua Tree with your faithful companion, you'll also walk away with some very memorable (professionally shot and edited) photos of you and your pup's adventure in the high desert. A couple of days after your adventure, you will receive two high-res, professionally edited digital photos of your desert exploration together, with the option of purchasing more once you peruse the online gallery of images from your dog day in the desert. If none of the times scheduled work for you, don't hesitate to get in touch and we can see if we can find a date/time that works with your schedule.
Hello! I’m a professional photographer, designer, and filmmaker based in the Mojave Desert. When I'm not shooting or editing images for a client, I spend my free time exploring the numerous beautiful hiking trails in and around Joshua Tree, CA with my two miniature Australian Shepards, Caray and Bella. Before relocating to the desert, I owned and operated my own petsitting and pet photography business in St. Paul, MN. What can I say? I love dogs, photography, and the outdoors and I can't wait to share this unique and beautiful landscape with you and your pup!

Upon booking, you'll have your choice of several dog-friendly hiking trails and wilderness areas around the high desert. Want to scramble through the boulders with your pup or maybe just take a leisurely stroll through a Joshua Tree grove? It's a choose-your-own adventure! Whatever you choose, you get a hike and professional portrait session in one! Because I want you to have your unique experience, I only book one group at a time. Max 5/group.
