"I’m proud to present this collection of photographs and stories, photographed by myself in 2021. 

For many years we have accepted the saying that Dogs are Man’s best friend. While many dogs have a close bond with their male owners, I could not help but notice that the majority of dog owners at the local park, my own dog’s vet and clients of my studio, were women.

In fact according to a recent study by Washington State University, researches found in the earliest human settlements, it was women that gave dogs names, let them sleep indoors and mourned when they died. Men may have kept dogs for hunting, but it was women who showered them with love and compassion.

In this book project, I set out to capture beautiful photos of both the dogs and the special bond they have with their fur mums. We have also collected the heart warming stories in the words of the 90 women involved, showing just how important dogs are in their everyday life.

I would like to thank everyone involved and those who gave generously of their time to have the photos taken. The project raised around $7000 for HAART WA, funds that will go a long way to helping the hundreds of abused and homeless dogs that they care for each year."


What is the Women's Coffee Table Charity Book?

Paws of Love partnered with the Homeless and Abused Animal Rescue Team (HAART) of WA to raise funds for animal welfare by creating a beautiful coffee table book showcasing the love and special bond many women have with their dog. Instead of charging a fee for their portraits, participants were required to make a donation directly to HAART WA.
