The photo my mother handed me was of a darling little white poodle. "Isn't she cute?!" she exclaimed with her joyous giggle. Miss Poodle was sitting very prim and proper in front of a red backdrop, her neck draped in pearls and she was smiling from ear to ear. She knew she was a star in the making. I mean, what shelter dog would be pampered and photographed in such a glamorous setting. The photo being taken was to help her get adopted from a local animal shelter. I have no doubt that sweet girl was quickly picked up to be the newest member of some lucky family.
That photo has been stamped inside my mind for over 20 years and it was captured by someone hoping to change the way animals in shelters were photographed. This photo introduced me to pet photography. My career has been in corporate marketing, but my entrepreneurial spirit and my love for animals led me to pet photography several years ago.
A little about me:

And I love taking portraits of pets!
