I'm a professional pet photographer and self-proclaimed chocolate connoisseur!
I understand the deep love people have for their pets, and my goal is to provide you with beautiful images of your pet to cherish for years to come. One of my great joys in life is to present photos of a client's dog to them and see their eyes light up, or fill with happy tears.
These days we tend to keep our photos on our computers, jump drives or programs like Facebook. Computers can become compromised, jump drives lost, and who knows how long Facebook will be around.
I love how physical artwork offers a tangible connection to our memories and emotions! Holding a photograph or admiring a piece of artwork of your pet can evoke strong emotions and bring back cherished memories of our best little buddies in a way that digital files can't always replicate. Every wall in my office is filled with artwork from my client sessions and I love to spin around in my chair and look at those little furry faces I quickly came to love during our session together.
I truly know how much joy can be found in looking at artwork of your beloved dog. I have artwork of my old boy Monty in my entrance way. He was 15 when we had to say goodbye. But every day I'm able to give him a little boop on the nose and tell him I love him.
I'm mostly an out-doors, don't care if I get dirty, roll around in the grass with the dogs, type of gal. The other part of me is a tad nerdy....ok maybe really nerdy. I love technology and spend many hours every day on my computer processing photos and learning new programs.
My favorite food is chocolate and I really love my coffee. Whenever we get the chance my husband and I love to camp.
But for me, there is nothing I enjoy more that spending a few hours with people and their dogs - the laughter and joy we share is just the best. It's impossible to hang around with dogs and not have a great time!
For many years, I've volunteered my time and photography skills to animal rescue groups. Some of the groups I support are Happy's Retirement Home for Senior Dogs, Ralphys Retreat, a Sanctuary for Pot-Bellied Pigs and Farm Animals, Wienerfest Home County Festival who supports Tiny Paws Dog Rescue.
