I have always had a great passion for animals. Growing up on a Kootenay homestead, animals have been my lifelong companions. From the beginning, chicks nested in my coverall pockets, kittens were born under my bed, my Sheltie and I played on elaborately constructed agility courses, and Duke the Shetland Pony helped me deliver our farm fresh goats milk all around the community. Growing with my interest in animals, I am currently a certified dog trainer and have been working with animals professionally for many years.
Photography is an equally strong passion for me. As a self taught photographer, I have constant access to animal subjects with own 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 horses, a coop full of chickens, and my pet services business. Through the time spent learning everything I could about photography, and taking countless photos, I began to see that I'm never happier than when I'm combining my two favourite things - animals and photos. Because of my extensive experience with animals, they tend to relax around me and we're able to work together to create unique and wonderful photos. I'm excited to be offering my services to the Kootenay area!
