On-Location Pet Photography

For all you pet owners and furry friend lovers out there...this one is for you!

I recently adopted a dog that was rescued from a puppy mill in Missouri. I almost instantly fell in love with Sully. He is a 2 year old male poodle with a very sweet personality and oh! so snugly. He is turning into a wonderful companion for our little Yorki-poo female, Ginger.

I feel huge joy when photographing animals. I seek to capture that joy in my furry subjects through photography, and translate it into beautiful photographic art for their care givers to cherish now and forever. I will photograph your pet on-location where your animal is most comfortable and I can be most creative. I offer various styles including fine art pet photography, classic portraits, fun images and unique perspectives. Your pets' personality will shine through!

Meet Sully and Ginger...

Benefits of Pet Ownership

When thinking of ways to moderate stress in life, usually techniques like meditation, yoga and journaling come to mind. These are great techniques, to be sure. But getting a new best friend can also have many stress relieving and health benefits.

While human friends provide great social support and come with some incredible benefits, let's focus on the benefits of our furry friends: cats and dogs!

Research shows that, unless you’re someone who really dislikes animals or is absolutely too busy to care for one accordingly, pets can provide excellent social support, stress relief and other health benefits — perhaps more than people!

Here are 10 benefits of owning a pet:

1. Pets Can Add Structure to Your Life

2. Pets Are Date Magnets

3. Pets Can Improve Your Mood

4. Pets Encourage You To Get Out And Exercise

5. Pets Control Blood Pressure Better Than Drugs

6. Pets Can Improve Family Bonds

7. Pets Are Allergy Fighters

8. Pets Stave Off Loneliness and Provide Unconditional Love

9. Pets Can Reduce Stress — Sometimes More Than People
10. Pets are great companions for the Aged
