Though she's the only one behind the camera, photographer Rebecca never works alone. When she travels to shoots, it's with her young Queensland Blue Heeler, Piper —an abandoned puppy that Rebecca took in. Piper's gentle yet playful nature puts clients at ease, and the interaction trains her, in turn, to be relaxed around people and tripods that look suspiciously like weird cats.
Piper's presence also speaks to Rebecca's power for communicating with humans and pets alike. During her 90-minute photo shoots, she connects with her subjects to capture their personalities against scenic backdrops. Former clients have ranged from labradors romping on the beach and entire families posing in a park to newborns sleeping peacefully at home. She even has a list of beautiful locales that she recommends for portraits, including a winery and the private trails behind her own home and studio.
