Photographing your pet is something you might only do once, so I strive to capture the personality of your dog or cat with every image. My diverse photographic education allows me to bring a unique and artistic style into my compositions. I will create beautiful and contemporary photos that highlight everything you love about the furry member of your family. Our pets grow so fast, and the time we get to spend with them is limited. A custom pet photography session ensures memories will live on long after your loyal friend has gone.
I am very fortunate to spend the majority of my time photographing animals. I currently work as the Official Photographer and Photography Teacher for the Nashville Zoo, where I've been teaching animal photography classes since 2012. I'm also the Photojournalist for Animal Rescue Corps, an international animal protection organization based out of Washington, DC. I photograph our animal rescue operations which have included hoarding cases, puppy mills, dog fighting rings and natural disasters. I received my B.S. in Photography from Middle Tennessee State University. In addition to my formal education, I spent a year working as the assistant to wildlife photographer Christian Sperka, where I received extensive training in animal photography and animal behavior.
I am a proud photography partner for the PEDIGREE Foundation, and I was voted Nashville's "Best Pet Photographer" in the Nashville Paw Magazine 2012 and 2013 Readers' Choice Awards. My pet photography has been featured with the BISSELL Pet Foundation, on Facebook with PEDIGREE® Brand, Sheba Brand, and TEMPTATIONS® Treats for Cats, and has been published in Animal Wellness Magazine.
