Capturing your fur-ever memories, moment by moment


Our fur-babies make us smile each and every day...when they are young and when they are old. Our pets don't hold grudges, they don't tell our secrets, and they don't argue with us. When our pets leave us we have such pure memories of the time we spent together, unfettered by negative memories. We can look back at the shoe our dog chewed as if it were a grand moment. And truth be told, we may even miss the 2 AM hair-ball alarms from our feline family members. Simply put, our pets grace our lives each and every day.

You love your pet...and guess what?  So do I. That's why I am a pet photographer. Your memories of your beloved fur-family member begin to fade. But the archival artwork we create together will keep that fur-ever moment vivid in your mind.  Together we will create a unique pet photography experience so we capture authentic images of your pet's expressions, behaviors and features to preserve these memories now and  "fur-ever" in archival photographic artwork. Whether your pet is a hooligan K9, an Obedience Academy Honor Roll graduate or an indoor diva kitty, I will get the shot. Guaranteed!

I am owned by a dog and two cats who have taught me key skills in building relationships and engagement between a pet and their owner. I do everything possible to make you and your pet comfortable so the photographs reflect their true personalities.

My style is documentary with limited intrusion, and only when your pet needs a little encouragement, or a piece of kibble just to keep them interested. 

I also want you to know that I offer complimentary photography tribute sessions for pet owners who have a seriously ill pet. As a long-time pet owner, I understand these special days in your pet’s journey with you and I want to be sure you have your treasured moments preserved before it is too late.

My photographs have been featured on the cover and within the book, "Warrior Pups: True Stories of America's K9 Heroes", written by Jeff Kamen and published by Lyons Press.

I am a United States Air Force veteran and I've earned a Bachelors of Fine Art in Digital Photography, with Honors from The Art Institute of San Antonio.
