Celebration of Life Pet Photography
SERVING INLAND EMPIRE (TEMECULA, MURRIETA, WINCHESTER, MENIFEE) AND SAN DIEGO
Your dog is family. I get it. Like I really really get it. I love my dogs. They definitely make our family complete. I want to hear all about your pup! Share your stories with me. Tell me about his bad habits? How does she make your life better? Once I get to know your dog's habits and personality, I can create a custom plan. Pet sessions vary by animal and need. I've photographed pet portraits with families, senior portraits with their pets, and pets in their last stage of life. I've worked with trainers, rescues, and shelters and photograph many of their animals. I'd be honored to capture your beautiful bond with your dog.
I LOVE ANIMALS! Need I say more? Okay, I will. I love the opportunity to photograph all different kinds of animals, including reptiles and exotics. I once was commissioned to photograph zoo animals, which were made into wall canvases, in order to decorate a child's bedroom. It was awesome!
These sessions are so fun! I'm very patient and flexible. Hey, it's not easy to pose a snake! I've worked with animal trainers, wildlife rescues, and reptile experts. My daughter is an animal and reptile handler and helps with all pet sessions.
Celebration of Life Photography
There's nothing more beautiful than the story of life. A few people have asked why I would want to photograph a horse or pet in its last stage of life. My answer always revolves around love. Losing a pet is one of the most gut-wrenching experiences to go through. We are so attached to our animals that when they pass on, it's really like losing a member of the family. To have beautiful photographs taken of your pet is like stopping time. Photos become cherished memories of that special place in your heart where your beloved pet will remain forever. My goal is to document your love, your bond, and the unique personality of your pet or horse. Don't wait until it's too late. I will do my best to rearrange my schedule to make sure we have time for your aging or ailing pet or horse. It would be my honor to photograph your Tux's Rainbow pet. Sessions include planning appointment to discuss your needs and your location(s) of choice, outfit changes, professionally edited digital images, and a private online gallery.
