About Me

 

I bought my first DLSR in the summer of 2011 for a trip to Uganda, hoping to chronicle the amazing adventure my husband and I were about to embark on.  I didn’t expect much of my photographic abilities, yet as I shot the majestic scenery and animals, I realized that beautiful subjects make taking beautiful photographs easy. After the trip, I put my camera away, thinking any other subject would pale in comparison, after shooting African Silverback Gorilla’s in the wild.

A few months went by and I started volunteering for a local animal rescue group.  When they needed some photographs of a rescue dog, I pulled out my camera and went to meet Candy. It was then I discovered that I didn’t need to travel to Africa to find beautiful and interesting subjects – they were right in my own backyard. Perhaps these dogs were even more beautiful; despite their struggles, they had such an infectious, care-free, live-in-the-moment attitude.

I continued to photograph rescue dogs for Halfway Hounds as a hobby, until my life hit another turning point when I was honored to be the commencement speaker at the SUNY Albany, CCI graduation ceremony.  In my speech, I highlighted the importance of chasing your dreams and doing what you love. It was then I realized I needed to heed my own advice, and take the plunge starting my own pet photography business (why stop there?  I included fine art in my business too 🙂 ).  I threw myself into learning photography with the laser-like focus I’m known for (both my bane and my blessing).  My photography, art and technology background have all grown to compliment each-other.

My love for animals goes way back. When I was ten, my mother asked me what qualities I would like to have in my future husband, and I responded with only one requirement: he must love animals.  I now live in Saratoga, New York with my animal-loving husband, our three cats and our daughter Fiona.  I continue to feed my love for rescue pet photography by photographing adoptable dogs and cats from local animal rescues, shelters and foster homes.
