I originally tripped into photography through my love of film making a long time ago when I made pretty awful short films and had aspirations of being the next great female director. I discovered still photography on that journey and never looked back.
I am the kind of person who thinks dogs are better than people 99.2% of the time. Cats are pretty cool too, but I have enjoyed a deep connection with dogs my entire life.
I am a MacGyver type, and can pretty much find a solution to any problem. I apply that approach to my pet photography. Whether it's creating a completely random bit of equipment with duct tape and a paperclip, or just finding a unique way to soothe a nervous dog, I can always pull something out of my hat.
I have worked at the same veterinary clinic for over 20 years. Because of my many (many, many many) years working in that environment, comfort and safety are my top priorities. I also have over two decades of experience with handling and canine behavior which I utilize for every session.
