Hello, Pet Lover!
My first word was “cat”, but I’m pretty sure that’s only because my family didn’t have a dog at the time.
As a little girl, I never dreamed of getting married and having babies, I fantasized about having a monkey and a koala bear. I didn't have imaginary friends, I had imaginary pets.
It probably didn’t surprise anyone but me when I grew up to become a Veterinary Technician. For years, every orphaned or injured bird, mouse, snake, and squirrel in the neighbourhood seemed to know to show up in our yard for help. I spent over 25 years working in Veterinary Clinics and animal shelters, and you can bet I brought my fair share of “work” home with me.
My extensive experience in the animal care field makes me uniquely qualified to work with animals who may be timid, reactive, or who have special needs. Your pet's safety and comfort are my greatest concern. I am committed to using positive reinforcement along with a healthy dose of patience in order to create images that showcase your pet’s personality, and capture every beloved detail. The families I work with are frequently amazed and delighted by the beautiful pet portraits I am able to create by applying a little patience and understanding of animal behaviour.
I’m also an award winning Landscape and Wildlife Photographer, you can check out my nature work here.
