While my focus is portrait photography now, my passion for being a photographer started with animals. I grew up with a mom who bred nationally winning show cats (yep, it's really a thing!) and my first digital camera was purchased to help take photos of her kittens two decades ago. While it was certainly not a requirement, I loved challenging myself to get group shots of the litters of kittens - and if you've ever heard the expression 'herding cats', well, it's a legit thing, and it's so gratifying when you happen to catch a great shot of everyone together! So I learned to be quick, and use the element of surprise. I have since shared my experience with several rescue groups, and continue to donate my time and photography skills to local rescues to help dogs and cats find great homes!
These days, when our pets are a huge part of our families, we are realizing that they are with us for a much shorter time than we would wish, and capturing a bit of their love on camera is something we will treasure forever. I love being a pet photographer in the Twin Cities!
Pet sessions start at $200 including digitals, and I offer payment plans as well as several custom package options from basic to boutique.
