About me

I have always had an affinity for the great outdoors, animals and photography.  I always looked at Ansel Adams work with a longing to see those places and experience the sense of wonder and majesty that God graced us with.  As I grow older, I wish to capture those images to help foster belonging and environmental justice.   My images capture the beauty I see as I take my journey in life.

My journey is not always alone.  I have taken my journey in life with some wonderful dogs.  They each have had their own personalities from comforter to clown  and my current wild child.

I always wanted to capture the personalities of each and then the bonds between us.  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 help you capture the uniqueness of your pet and the bonds that you share through your journey together.

GIVING BACK

2020 brought a wonderful increase in pet adoptions.  The fact that businesses were closed and large social events decreased, brought families together to spend quality time with each other.  Families then saw it in their hearts to share their home with the many abandoned pets that were in shelters.

While this was a wonderful accomplishment, shelters have recently seen an increase in pets at the shelters.  Pets can be abandoned for multiple reasons:

  • Illness of pet or family member
  • Time to take care of pet
  • Unable to effectively manage an animals behaviors
  • Change in Family circumstances (moving, new child)
  • Money

I have been blessed to have spent the past 7 years serving local animal shelters taking photos of the animals in order to promote adoption.  Pro Bono services have provided Nancy Kieffer photography to photograph >250 dogs, >1000 miles traveled and >$100,000 value provided. (based on cost of images)
