The first photographs I ever took were of my cat, Smokey. Poor, patient, Smokey. My skills have improved dramatically since that first shot, but my passion for taking photographs of animals has never wavered. Along the way, I incorporated my other passions as well – photographing landscapes, travel, and models. Some of my travel and nature photography has been published in Fodors, Conde Nast Traveler, Hertz social media campaigns, Huffington Post, and used by P.F. Changs and Google. But I always came back to animals and now I’m thrilled to be a specialized pet photographer.
My own pack includes four resident dogs (two Newfoundlands, one lab mix, one shepherd), two “foster failures” (we adopted them both) special-needs cats, the occasional foster dog, and my husband. I’ve fostered over 100 cats and dogs at least, so I’ve gotten to know all kinds of breeds and personalities. And I have adored them all – even the crazy ones. Maybe especially the crazy ones. Each one is different but they have all brought a special joy and meaning to my life.
