MY HEART FOR RESCUES
I started photographing rescue pets in 2013. I’ve always had a passion for photography, and I was already fostering, so I figured I would try to give each dog I had the best fighting chance, by showcasing their personalities through their photos. And hey, I thought, who doesn't love cute photos of dogs!
Now, as an active member of HeARTs Speak, I have expanded to work with multiple rescues and shelters including the Rescued Rescuers of the Emerald Coast, Husky Haven of Florida, Misunderstood Ranch, Greyhound Pets of America Emerald Coast & Saving With Soul Animal Rescue. HeARTs Speak is a nonprofit organization that works to unite art and advocacy to increase the visibility of shelter animals. They give artists a platform to work with rescues and shelters to showcase each pet in a new light. First impressions are so important in the adoption world and I hope to use my photos to help give each pet a good shot at finding a forever family.
The best part about my job is figuring out each pet’s personality and working to showcase it in their photo shoot. I love to capture the quirkiness of each individual animal and highlight the lovable qualities that make them ready for a family. Speaking from lots of experience, there is nothing quite like the heart of a rescue pet. If you have a chance, check out adoption options in the area and give one of these fluffy friends a home!
By means of professional pet photography, I feel I can give back to our community in a way that combines my passion for photography with my heart for rescues. Feel free to shoot me a message if you have a foster pet or rescue in mind that could benefit from my services or check out my Facebook page for current adoption opportunities!
