Marni Bellavia Photography | About

Let’s create a lifetime of memories together!

My passion for photography began with my love for animals and my desire to capture their individual personalities.  Throughout my career I have photographed hundreds of pets, people, children, families, and special events, always keeping in mind that each picture must represent the special connection my clients have with each other.


I capture those moments, which showcase love and joy. Every picture tells a story and through my lens I portray unconditional love, affection, and playfulness between my clients and their pets, their families and their children. Being able to capture that special moment in your life where time stands still becomes a memory that lasts a lifetime. Photography is the best gift I can give to others.


A little background about me…


I left the corporate world in 2000 to work at the Humane Society of Broward County as the manager of their Animal Assisted Therapy Program.  All of my dogs have been adopted from the Humane Society.  At present, I have two dogs.  Sydney, a Shetland Sheepdog, and Karma, a Miniature Australian Shepherd.  I am grateful to share my life with them and I am amazed at how much they have taught me.


I love placing animals in their “forever” homes.  I have been the lead photographer for the One Picture Saves a Life Campaign in South Florida, which promotes the adoption of shelter animals.


In addition, I am the owner of HumaneK9 Dog Training (  My philosophy is to use positive reinforcement training methods with my clients.  It is gratifying to see the wonderful transformation of both dog and owner as they reach their goals.
