Saturday, February 22nd from 1:00 PM – 7:00 PM

The media may have stopped talking about the fires in Australia, but we know that the devastating effects of the fires don’t go away after the media has stopped reporting them. There are still a lot of animals in need of help!

An international group of Pet Photographers have joined forces under the banner of Paws for Oz. Their goal? To raise much needed funds, knowing there is strength in numbers. All donations go directly to established rescue Wildlife Victoria, to help with rescue and rehabilitation of koalas, wombats, kangaroos, dingoes, kookaburras and many more species.

I am proud to say that I will be participating in this initiative by offering (15), 15 minute – limited edition photography micro sessions to help raise funds for the cause! I’ve chosen a sparkly, gold backdrop in honour of Australia’s Gold and Green national colours! My goal is to raise $1000 AUS for the cause!

Sessions will take place at BrindleBerry Studios in Calgary, AB Canada on Saturday, February 22nd between 1:00 PM and 7:00 PM. 

How does it work?

Register your interest in a session by emailing me at I’ll let you know if there are any spots left and send you the link to make your donation!

PLEASE NOTE DONATIONS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE so please contact me prior to making your donation and DO NOT DONATE DIRECTLY (I will send you a link) to ensure we have spots left, otherwise we may not be able to accommodate you.

Step 2: Make a minimum $50 AUS donation to Wildlife Victoria

Holly captured unforgettable images of my Rottweiler, Baldr, in the Spring of 2015. My gentle giant’s heart is reflected so well in the photographs she took of him and I will be forever grateful for this enduring gift!!

AMAZING photography! Holly makes the whole experience very comfortable and fun for the animals and their people.

When Holly sent us the first sneak peak picture of the photo shoot, it brought tears to my eyes because she 100% captured the Cooper that not everyone gets to see; she truly is a great photographer.

My dog is shy/nervous, can they attend?

These sessions are very short and unfortunately we don’t have the time necessary to humanely get a shy or nervous pet prepared for their photo. Please book a full session for that! If you would like to try anyway, we can – but should we not get any photos during the designated time, you will not receive your donation back. We will not force an uncomfortable pet to have their photo taken and reserve the right to end the session when we see fit.

I have multiple pets, can they all be in the photo?

Due to the size of our special backdrop, we can accommodate only one pet per photo. If you have 2 pets, please choose the KANGAROO session. If you have more than 2 pets you’d like photographed, feel free to increase your donation appropriately and we’ll set aside multiple time slots consecutively for you! Please ask me for details prior to donating and I can help you choose. 

Can I be in the photos?

Unfortunately, no. The special backdrop we’ve chosen for this session only has room for one subject.

If I fall in love with more than one photo, can I order more?

YES! You can purchase additional files or some of our signature artwork after your session! We have a brand new, signature piece we’ll be debuting for the Paws for OZ session!

The date doesn’t work for me, can I book another day?

These limited edition sessions are available for one day only. Please sign up for my mailing list and be sure to catch the next one!

Do I get a tax receipt?

Because you are receiving something for your donation, you are not legally allowed to claim your donation in Canada. If you make a “No Frills” donation, please contact your accountant for more info. I am not sure how tax receipts work between countries.
