I was born and raised on the beautiful coastline of Perth, West Australia. Lapping up the sun and surf with friends and furry friends alike I became aware of the important and amazing connection between dogs and people. They teach and remind us to live in the moment every day.
Nature is my happy place. The ocean, mountains, forest, rivers and lakes give me that wonderful sense of place and awe. Even more so at sunrise and sunset. I can't help but want to capture and share these beautiful landscapes. This is why you will notice most of my sessions happen outside; surrounded by wonderful views, lovely lighting and intimate moments that inspire each and every photo.
2019 is my fourth year of living in the wild and stunning Coast Mountains of Canada. Here in Squamish BC, where the forest greets the sea and the mountains reach the stars, I wander and pursue my photographic journey. I am currently a pack leader for Mountain Bound Hounds, a local dog walking company. Not a day goes by I don’t want to get up and take our dogs out for an adventure in our beautiful surrounds. This role also goes hand in hand with being involved in the wonderful dog community we have here. I particularly enjoy donating my services and products to our local SPCA Sea to Sky Branch.
Whilst photography is a huge part of my work and personal life I also enjoy home cooking, exploring breweries with my fiancee (a brewer himself), thrift shopping (fast fashion is the devil!), a delicious well made coffee, weekend camping trips, fires down at our local river, making a conscious effort to live as waste free a life as possible bring this into our home, caring for my growing indoor plant collection, spending quality time with close friends and family, and lately I may or may not be spending too much time researching potential puppies for when we can finally commit to giving one its forever home...
Having always had a dog in our family, one of them being trained and successfully contributing to the search and rescue team for our State Emergency Services, and following high school I have had work experience and continued education in various fields involving dog care and services.
With dog(s) sessions being my primary focus (and giving me ridiculous amounts of joy); I believe having and offering versatility teamed with being adaptable, alongside my easy going nature, makes you incredibly valuable. Which is why I don’t limit myself to only one area of photography.

"I have to say a massive thank you to the wonderful @mareerattrayphotography for doing this photo session for Zooey. She is absolutely amazing and captured her SO perfectly. Her personality shone through in every shot and Zooey just loves her so much. I can’t say enough wonderful things about her photos so if you’re ever in the sea to sky region, or are willing to travel for photos, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!"

"Maree has taken our family photos and also my daughters first birthday photos. She is professional, always on time and ready to go. She is also super patient especially important around babies when things don't always go to plan... The photos are amazing quality and the turn around time between the shoot and receiving the final photos is fast. I would highly recommend her to all my friends and family."
