I see a lot of the ugly side of the world at my day job in an animal shelter. A few years ago, I began actively seeking beauty wherever I could find it and creating it where I couldn't find it. My passion for nature photography has really saved my sanity and helped me find balance in my life. Fortunately, I live in Canada, so inspiration is never very hard to find and my partner and I spend as much time as possible traveling around the country, camping with our 2 chihuahuas.
Naturally, I began pointing the camera at the animals in my life and the other piece of the puzzle fell into place for me. Pet photography allows me to celebrate the human animal bond at its best and reminds me that the vast majority of pet owners are devoted to their furry friends. My 20+ years of experience as a Veterinary Technician makes me uniquely qualified to work with animals who may be shy or fearful and their families are frequently delighted by the beautiful pet portraits I am able to create with a little patience and understanding of animal behaviour.
