You're not here just to exist...

When you bring a dog into your life, you’re saying “yes” to adventure and connection. You’re choosing togetherness and wonder. You’re signing up for a journey that encourages you to see the world from a different perspective. And that journey will take you to places you never knew you needed.

Where you’ll remember what matters most – you’re here for love, and you’re here to live.

...you're here to live.

Not just a pet...

Your dog is your guide in navigating how to live your best life. They’re your partner in experiencing every moment of your journey together. They’re your mirror in understanding how beautiful, strong, and deserving of love you are.

Your dog is so much more than just a pet.

They’re your soulmate. Your Soul Dog.

...a soulmate.

Not just a place...

The places you go with your dog – the park, the beach, and the trails you explore. The route you walk through your neighborhood and the spot you sit to watch the sun go down together. These aren’t just places. They’re your breath of fresh air. Your freedom to be. Your reconnection to home, to self, and everything you hope for.

They’re where you’ve been, where you are, and where you belong.

Not just a photo...

The art we create isn’t just a book of photos or a portrait on the wall. These are living moments where we listened, felt, and lived life. Where we experienced the full expression of the joy of the dog you love. And we said, “yes, these are the moments I want to hold onto.”

These are not just photos. They’re pieces of your journey, and the magic in your life.

...a journey and a life.

The relationship you have with your Soul Dog is one of the most important connections you’ll have in your lifetime.

Together, you’ve lived a journey full of adventures that have shaped you into who you are today. Every moment – from the quiet solitude of home to the wildness of the great outdoors – is made better with your Soul Dog by your side.

Not just a photographer...

I’m Marika – a creative wildling inspired by nature, animals, and the deep wisdom each of us holds within us. I believe that our dogs are our greatest teachers, partners, and soulmates.

There is so much life in dogs. So much movement and energy. Like poetry and music. And art. And emotion.

Dogs connect us to a deeper knowing about our own journey through life. The connection we have with them is ever-moving, growing, and eternal.

It’s my goal to help you tap into your connection with your dog through artwork that honors your story.

...an artist and storyteller.

“Because of the dog’s joyfulness, our own is increased. It is no small gift. It is not the least reason why we should honor as well as love the dog of our own life, and the dog down the street, and all the dogs not yet born. What would the world be like without music or rivers or the green and tender grass? What would this world be like without dogs?”

– Mary Oliver, “Dog Talk”
