Capturing Connections with Animals, their People and the Environment

About me

I didn't get my first dog until I was 13, though I had been begging for one for years.  I always had a affinity toward animals.  During my high school years, Smokey was my soulmate, my comforter and protector.  Later I had my little prince Midnight and my clown and mama's boy Shamus.  I always wanted to capture the bond between my dog 's and I.  I was taking selfies with my dog's long before you heard the word.  I would set up my camera on the timer and jump in.  Our pets are gone too soon and they each have their own personality that shines.    I would love to capture the bonds that you have with your pet, so that you have everlasting memories of your time together.

Nancy was very Patient.

Nancy came to my home to photograph my cat Tinkerbelle.  This was not an easy task as cats don't really respond well to commands! Nancy was very patient. She played with Tinkerbelle to get different looks/poses. She had equipment to control/enhance lighting and an excellent camera.  She took so many wonderful shots that I had a hard time choosing what to pick.

Prompt and professional.

For starters, this was the first time I've ever had my pictures taken by a professional photographer.  She was prompt and professional and obviously knew what she was doing and was familiar with angles and lighting as well as what poses would look best. Another huge bonus is that her prices are reasonable.  I will definitely be utilizing her services the next time I need a professional photographer. thank you Nancy!
