Life before Photography

Many years ago, in a time before Entrepreneurship was even a thought in my mind, I worked at an animal shelter in Arizona as an animal care technician and adoptions counselor. At the Humane Society of Southern Arizona is where I met my best friend in the entire world...Simba.

I just knew.

I remember the first time I saw him like it was yesterday. I was being trained to transfer animals coming out of spay/neuter surgery into holding where they would spend three days healing prior to being put into adoptions. I saw a mid sized golden dog curled up with a giant cone who had floppy ears, and immediately said "I'll carry this one over!"

I grew up with spaniels, and nothing gets me like those ears. It was literally love at first sight. Two days later, I was in the shelter on my day off picking out a collar for my newest family member.

I'm gonna say it...who rescued who?

We've all heard the sang, but I didn't really understand it until I had this dog. I was going through a really difficult phase of life when Simba came along, and he got me through some times I never thought I could handle. He's my rock, my sidekick, and my best buddy. There are no words for the gratitude I have for this dog, and nothing could repay what he has done for me.

Yes, I will always photograph your dog!

While I'm an Equine Photographer by trade, I absolutely love doing other pet portraits. Whether you're looking to add your dog to your Horse & Rider portraits, get some Black Backgrounds done, or something in between - I'm here for it!
