When I'm not snuggling my own dog, Mr. Jack, you can find me in my cozy home-office sipping on some coffee with hazelnut cream and listening to a podcast most likely on personal growth. I find joy in genuinely making people laugh, a large plate of scrambled eggs on Sunday mornings with my partner, Luke, and quiet morning walkies with Mr. Jack.



Thanks for being here!

Hey, I'm Cedar

I'm a portrait photographer based in Madison, WI with a strong belief that I was meant to give dogs the spotlight.

My style

My love for dogs has been around ever since my parents brought our puppy, Guinness, home when I was 5 years old. We were best friends. I told him my deepest darkest secrets, he'd keep me safe from monsters under my bed, and he was there for me when I needed it most.

Over time, and photographing everything under the sun, I found that photographing dogs excited me the most. Guinness has his own set of photographs for me to remember him by now, and I want to continue giving that gift to anyone else wanting to create a space held specifically for the love they share with their four legged friend.

Why I do what I do

My approach 

When it comes to photographing dogs, there is never just "one way" to do it. Each dog is unique in their own way and require different levels of patience, timing, and attention. I'll bring out the high energy to a session to get those running shots, or come to your home if you simply want those sweet moments of snuggling on the couch. I'm there to photograph what most represents your dog at heart and the relationship you share.
