About Nani

Since a little kid I’ve loved dogs more than I love people. I’m funny that way.

I used to sit on a wooden bench in a dog show to scribble down notes to my competition catalogue. I had no idea what I was doing – or what was happening in the show ring – but I did it out of love.

As a 19 year old student I got my first dog. She was pretty much nothing I hoped for but in her own, unique, way she was so much more. She taught me everything I know about dog photography. She was my muse.

My dogs have taught me how to be a better version of myself. And when I meet fellow dog lovers they keep telling me the same story. We understand that what we have been given in the form of a dog is something unspeakable.

I photograph because of this. I started to create dog portraits because I wanted to remember the connection between us. Because after all, there’s only one downside to sharing your life with dogs: they leave us too soon.

And when they do: we need to remember.
