Renae Crevalle

Renae Crevalle

Manager

Growing up in Miami Florida, Renae was always comfortable with a camera; only in 1962 she was in front of it when she won “Little Miss Universe”. From that moment she did a huge amount of modeling and commercials. At the age of 10, because of her scuba diving abilities, she appeared in an Ivan Tors film called ”Island of the Lost” along with Luke Halpin (Flipper) and Rico Browning.
Her adult life brought her to Chicago, where she owned several of her own businesses. Then one day she picked up her camera and discovered the world of dog photography. She then fused her creative graphics arts hobby along with her love of animals to create “Say Woof! Petography. This led her into the Dog Grooming industry.
2010 Renae was introduced to Carmel and fell in love with its magical qualities and vowed to return. While still in Chicago, Renae started an internet conversation with Todd Harris about coming to work with him. March of 2013, Renae showed up on the doorstep of Suds ‘N Scissors, where she was welcomed by Todd Harris and has never been happier.

I have spent the last 30 years working with animals, 25 of those as a Vet Tech on the Monterey Peninsula. When I’m not caring for animals I enjoy photography, hiking in Big Sur, exploring new places and a little treasure hunting is always a must!

When I’m not bathing dogs, or helping clients you can find me behind the camera, my other "gig" is a professional photographer, weddings and babies are my specialty! Watching one of my favorite TV shows like Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead is a must!
