If we haven't met yet,

I'm Sandra of Dogs and Tails Pet Photography.

Bulldog mom and natural light Photographer for over 10 years. 

Born with dogs by my side and a camera in my hand, I made it a longlife passion to combine my love for dogs with photography.

The images of Dogs in Classic cars are well known.  A project I started in 2015 and got rewarded for in U.S. in 2019 by IPA - International Photography Awards

After years of working with dogs and creating a dreamlike style of portrait photography, I am ready to share my passion and knowledge about photography and post processing with you!

Hope to welcome you soon in one of my workshops.

My name is Emeline Lievin, I'm a 25 yo and I'm pet photographer since 2018.

I photograph dogs, cats and horses all around the country.


What I love most in animal photography is capturing their natural expressions and adding a touch of magic to immortalize them in beautiful natural locations.
