About Your Photographer

Hi everyone! My name is Kim Mayes and I have been a photographer and dog trainer in Brevard County, Florida for almost 25 years now. I am dedicated to my furry family members, who have really built me into the photographer and trainer I am today. My love for animals started at a very early age. I started working with horses and began training and giving riding lessons as a pre-teen. It was here that I really started delving into any knowledge I could find on animal behavior and to my passion for capturing these beautiful creatures through a lens. Weekends were filled with shows and competitions and in between rides you could always catch me wandering around the show grounds taking pictures of every critter, big or small I could find. As I worked my way through school, working vet tech jobs, in zoos and dog training at facilities across Brevard, I developed my skills as a professional dog trainer and expert in animal behavior. It is through my work as a trainer, that I discovered just how important it is when you are behind the lens, to be extremely knowledgeable in the art of reading an animal’s body language and behaviors to get that perfect shot. I know personally that my pets are a huge part of my life. They have been with me through the best of times and the worst of times and they are my family. The memories we have together, of pets both present and past, that have been captured through photographs are my most prized possessions. Wether it is bringing home a brand new puppy, daily training routines, achieving Championship titles or those precious last days before a loved one crosses the Rainbow Bridge, they are priceless and I can’t think of a better gift to give my clients than helping them preserve those happy memories with their own fur friends. Currently, I live with my 4 beautiful dogs Rocket (Husky/Malamute), SuperNova (Siberian Husky), Spirit (Siberian Husky) and Loki (Chinese Crested Dog). The dogs have all been involved in a variety of dog sports and are all Champion or Grand Champion Trick & Stunt Dogs. Some of them even hold world records and have been on the big screen! I have accomplished many accreditations over the years. Here are a few:
