I have over twenty years experience in the field as a nature and documentary photographer. However, I really saw a need in the Hudson Valley for Pet Photography. So here I am! I'm also, obviously a huge animal lover! I have had animals since I was born and even worked on several farms with not only horses but sheep, goats, pigs, rabbits, chickens, cows etc! I have also owned small breed animals such as guinea pigs and a very crazy rescue Quaker Bird, Oliver. I just feel like I can relate to animals sometimes better than humans. All my animals have been rescues. I currently have three cats, a dog named Noodles and two Hermit Crabs! I'm a mom to a preschooler who also owns a camera and have a husband who supports all my dreams.
