To do anything worthwhile with pet photography you have to be as comfortable with animals as you are with your camera, and I bring my training as a multimedia storyteller to years of experience with many different critters. Not only have I loved my own menagerie of pets, I've worked professionally with everything from butterflies to a Harpy Eagle named Luigi, so when you warn me that your grumpy tomcat takes a while to warm up to people, you can trust that I'll respect his boundaries and find a way to coax out his personality.
I think a good portrait grabs you like your favorite song: you know it inside out, but you keep coming back. This is the kind of picture I make for my clients. I work to reveal moments when our dopey fuzzballs are a little bit larger than life.
