This is always the most difficult part to write. Instead of going on and on, I’ll give you a short list of random things that sum up who I am…and when we meet, the rest will fall into place.
I am very casual! It is not often you will find me dressed up or without my birkenstocks.
I have trouble living in areas that don’t have large bodies of water.
I love the underdog.
I get a little teary at the thrill of victory.
I quit Diet Coke for Spark…never looked back.
I am not great at being idle. I love to learn new things and am usually experimenting with some new crafty thing or project.
I have enjoyed photography for as long as I can remember.
I love sports…pretty much any of them. (hockey being my favorite)
I have a weakness for Fran’s dark chocolate/caramel with salt.
I will post some pictures here soon…I will…I will!
Pictures are not coming soon…see this post for why I haven’t posted any pictures yet.
On a photography note, I have always enjoyed pets, we had a Cocker Spaniel growing up. I still have pictures I took of him. Maybe it was always meant to be that I someday would become a pet photographer. I finally made the commitment to drop everything else except for pets and their people this year and I have not looked back! It feels great to do what you love!
I am a contributing photographer for CityDog Magazine. If you haven’t been to their website, you should check it out and sign up (it’s free!). Some of my work can also be seen in Pup Culture Magazine, The Bark and Dog Fancy. I have two lovable labs (Bailey & Banjo) and just about love all things dog (and sometimes cats). I photograph products, commercial assignments, editorial and also pets for private clients who want to have professional photographs of their loved ones!
I am also the founder of Lick. Slobber. Drool., a dog lifestyle company that donates a portion of the proceeds back to a scholarship fund set up to help people financially cover canine cancer treatments. You can purchase items through the store and also follow our Dog-A-Day for Canine Cancer project that Bailey & Banjo is photographing.
Finally, I am also a supporting member of HeARTs Speak, a non-profit organization that connects artists with rescues and shelters with the intention of breaking down the myth that animals from Rescues and Shelters are inferior in some way. Professional Photographs greatly improve adopt-ability and ultimately, will increase the number of animals adopted and reduce the numbers that are euthanized.
