Animals have always been a constant in my life. I was raised in Southern Louisiana, with your typical pets but we also had farm animals, horses and I also kept reptiles for quite sometime. I have respect for and experience with a variety of animals of all sizes.

In 2008 I started my photography business in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois taking portraits of people, weddings and working with rescue groups. After 3 years I realized I wanted to focus on pet photography. I am a firm believer that to be a good pet photographer you must respect your subjects and take the time to understand their needs and their behavior. 

I enjoy every single moment with my camera and the animals I get to photograph. My goal with every session is to create timeless fine art images that represent your pet's individual personality and to create a beautiful piece of art for your wall.

I am a member of Professional Photographers of America. I enjoy entering images into print competitions at a District and International level. I was recently awarded platinum photographer at International Photographic Competition. 

I was published in Town & Country (UK) Winter 2016. The image selected was one from my ongoing Sighthound Project.

My husband Chris and I share our home with 2 older dogs and 1 senior cat. With our son all grown up, Monty and Mojo are our spoiled little fur kids and we shower them with attention.
