the extraneous details:
My hair is fire engine red and I am hopelessly addicted to chai tea and making people laugh.
I prefer to live my life seizing moments - the kind you remember on those rainy days. The kind that bring you hope and endless smiles in the face of uncertainty.
Furthermore, I could push my toes into the sand on a sunny, windblown beach and stay there for about 72 hours without complaint. (unless I really had to pee.)
a quick and dirty history:
I attended the University of Tampa in southwest Florida where I majored in visual arts and communication. There, I excelled in art and design and found an intense love for colors, artistic concepts and creativity. But, above and beyond the visual communications, art history, and design classes – I found the ones I arrived early to and most excited for were always the photography ones. After receiving my bachelor’s degree in 2009, it felt natural to turn towards photography. I began dabbling in photographing landscapes, architecture and portraits but quickly realized that I belonged doing the thing that I was the most passionate about – photographing dogs. (and cats! and horses! and anything that’s generally fuzzy with four legs!)
the soulful, important stuff:
I am a fan of anything fuzzy that walks on four legs, but of those things - dogs are my absolute favorite.
It is my personal belief that there is more happiness glittering in the iris of a smiling puppy than there is anywhere else in the world. And sometimes, when everything else seems to fail me, I find solace in the smile of a dog.
This is why I do what I do.
It’s that same smile - on the face of your best friend - that I am working to immortalize. I want to capture those goofy smiles, furry facial expressions, and happy tail-wags that make your world a better place.
Every time I look to my left, there is an 80 lb, multi-colored, wagging ball of love at my side. His name is Joshua, and he has this magical ability to cure any ailment with one quick swipe of his pink tongue.
I think you know exactly what I mean. You’ve got one too.
So, I am here to pause those brilliant, happy moments in time and give you the ability to hold on to them forever. I am passionate about capturing the honesty of your dog’s soul and the beauty of his simplicity. When my camera and your dog meet - wonderful things tend to happen.
Plus, I give free belly rubs.
