Bead Heads Registration is now CLOSED!

Thank you to everyone who signed up for a Bed Heads Session!

The “Bed Heads and other irresistible scruffy faces” book is inspired by the laughter and smiles that my own scruffies bring to me. I’m creating a limited edition, hardcover coffee table book filled with joy, to help other rescue animals!

Registration IS NOW CLOSED

Total number of spaces in the book is limited.

We’re raising money for Pets Alive Niagara.

50% from all registration fees go to the rescue!

Pets Alive Animal Rescue Niagara Inc. is committed to our compassionate community. We strive to make Niagara a safer place for community companion animals. We are dedicated to finding loving forever homes for every cat and dog we have the honour of fostering.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Does my pet have to be a scruffy to be in the book?

Yes, your pet needs to have a scruffy, shaggy, just-rolled-out-of-bed hairdo to be included in the book.

Can I have a longer session?

Yes! You can book a session for two pets which extends your time to 1 hour.

Or if you have multiple scruffies from the same household or wish to be included in some of the photos, you can book the 90 minute Bed Heads extension (only pets with Bed Head will be included in the book)

My dog needs to be on leash, is that okay?

No problem! For safety reasons most of my subjects are leashed for their session. 

I remove leashes from final images using my photoshop wizardry.
