A new venture for me...sort of.

I have had animals of various sorts, all of my life. All of my "womb time" as well. My family has had animals, always. They are part of our family, they are part of who we are. Being as such, we have many. Our furry family consists of 3 dogs, 1 cat (Sneezy McCreepy - my pet name for him) 3 bunnies, and 2 hermit crabs. They are absolutely a huge part of our lives. We plan around them, just like we would with our kids. With the addition of our standard poodle, Angus, we've had to step up our game. When he came to us, he was shy. He has been with us for 2 years, and he is just now warming up decently to my husband (who is a huge softy). So that has left us with extra planning on his part. His extra work on our part has actually been a blessing.

It is because of Angus, that I have had to learn more about photography. He is black. Inky black. And as you can imagine, black dogs are HARD to photograph. You just lose detail plain and simple. He has led me to meeting people that have been a blessing as well, on many levels. Thanks Googah!

Long story short, I am adding the option of pet photography for my business side. It is something that I have always enjoyed. Just like my children, I have giggled and felt warm and fuzzy when I look at puppy pictures. To see how far they have all come, how much they have grown, it just does my heart good. And isn't that the point of photography? Regardless of whether it is a snapshot or a professional portrait, a child or a pet. Photography sparks our memories, our emotions. It is a dear gift, actually. I am humbled to be able to offer it, and be a part of it.

I like to have fun, and this will be a very fun addition for me. It is a natural branch off. It's what I know. They are what I know. I know more about animals than I do about kids! Funny though, how a lot of things are pretty similar. Got to say though, never had a puppy eat a glass christmas tree ornament (ahem, middle child!). Love my family, both two and four legged.
