I have been passionate about animals for as long as I can remember and am literally that person who stops everything to ooh and aah over any animal in my field of vision. I am completely mesmerized by them and fall in love with each and every one I photograph.
My passion for photography began with my father, who practiced the art for the majority of his life. I began as a hobbyist in high school where my father nurtured my interest by teaching me everything he knew. He even set up a darkroom in our bathroom where we developed film and made prints together until I went off to college. Through the years, my love of photography led me in a different direction, and I discovered that I could capture an animal’s unique beauty and amazing personality through my lens.
Over the past 20 years, I have grown immensely as a photographer, graphic designer and retouch artist, and am officially celebrating my 10th year in business. I am the mother of four wonderful kids: one three year old daughter, one beautiful American Pit Bull, and three silly cats; and the wife of a very patient man.
In February of 2014, I received my Master of Photography degree from the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) in recognition of my superior photographic competence demonstrated through photographic competition, advanced education and service to the profession.
By combining my passion for animals with my experience in photography, I offer my clients soulful and artistic portraits of their pets that will be cherished forever.
