What could possibly be better than puppy breath and catnip kisses? Not much, which is why I surround myself with as many furry friends as possible! Meet Logan, Gracie, and Clarabelle, my trusty office assistants. Logan is sassy and playful, much like a tortie should be! She works for KFC chicken, and has a Masters in Adorable.
Meet Gracie, a fun loving, fashionable pup with quite a social network following! Known by her full name, Gracious Nippette, she was adopted in 2013 and quickly climbed the ranks here in the office as 2nd in command. Gracie loves her peanut butter Kong, long walks in the park, and chasing birds whenever she possibly can!
Clarabelle is a manic, face licking trouble maker, and newest addition to the team! Don’t let those brown eyes fool you…she’s up to no good most of the time, which makes it difficult to get things accomplished here in the office. Clarabelle is our resident food taster and all around jokester, keeping a sense of levity on those stressful work days.
To give you a little background info on how I became an animal enthusiast and pet photographer, it was a long journey, but well worth the wait. I received my degree from Antonelli Institute of Photography & Graphic Design in the great city of Philadelphia in 2006. I focused on commercial projects for over a year while finding my way, assisting for CFO, SmallBiz, and Forbes Magazine cover shoots. I quickly moved onto portraiture after discovering my love of capturing life moments as they happen, and the emotion those photographs create. It was clear that I would be a portrait photographer, so I began a small studio while working with pets, senior graduates, children, and families.
It’s funny how life changes and throws you a curve ball, resulting in the discovery of new passions along the way. I began volunteering at a local animal rescue in my small town, brought home two kittens that stole my heart (Tripper & Logan), and suddenly found my specialty and reason for doing what I do. Working with animals has completely taken my job to a new level of fun, leaving me with a big smile on my face and plenty of dog treats in my pocket. I now live in Nashville, TN and specialize in pet portraiture – spending my free time collaborating with local animal shelters, rescues, and fundraising organizations to give back to the community of animal advocates. My style has evolved into a colorful, goofy and expressive way to showcase your pets true personality, and I love every slobbery, drool infused moment of it!
