IPA Winner 2019

Award winning pet photographer 

IPA - International photography Awards



Natural light photographer for more than 15 years.  Living in Belgium, in the beautiful wooded area of Scherpenheuvel-Zichem.


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

In 2009 Dogs and Tails was created and my real photography adventure started....


I like to describe myself as a romantic soul with a big heart for dogs. Over the years I have learned, and I myself have been confronted with the fact how important it is to make many tangible memories and not to take their short time here on Earth for granted. That is why I specialize in creating tangible memories and create breathtaking works of art that you can cherish forever...

Dogs are part of the family and an integral part of our lives. They give us so much love and friendship in exchange for a soft bed and a warm hug. That is why I am convinced that every dog deserves at least 1 great portrait to hang in the living room.


Due to the typical soft, romantic style, my dreamy artworks of dogs and children are created.

After years of experience in working with dogs and creating my own style, I started dog photography workshops in 2018.  In this way I can share my knowledge, workflow and skills with people of the same passion.


I look forward to meeting you for a photo session or in one of my workshops!

Love, Sandra
