"My fashion philosophy is, if you're not covered in dog hair, your life is empty."
Hi there, I'm Jess! I'm a
crazy proud Dog Mom! And there is nothing I enjoy more than connecting with other fur parents like myself and capturing the unique bond between them and their four-legged children, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
The day I got my first pup, Sky, I got all the dog mom stuff too. The shirts, the hats, the bumper sticker, etc. (I'm betting you can relate!) But as Sky got older I realized I didn't have the most important thing, a beautiful portrait of her. Sure I had a million cell snap shots (and she was adorbs in every one!) but I wanted something I could showcase in my home. A portrait that captured the beautiful girl that had stolen my heart and was my constant companion.
So I went searching for a photographer. But when I would mention bringing Sky, the photographers would get a little quiet. They didn't have answers to my questions about dog friendly locations or how to grab the dogs attention. I was heart broken, I wanted great photos of and with my girl and I didn't find what I was looking for.
I had always dabbled in photography but was now determined to learn how to capture Sky in all her goofy glory and that lead me into the wonderful world of dog photography. Who knew that was even a thing?!

Now, years later, I have spent countless hours at pet photography workshops & retreats learning how to capture each dog's unique personality and bond with their people.
Sky was my inspiration and first model and has since passed away, but do you know what I have now? A beautiful portrait of her that I will cherish forever. And I want that for you too!
