My mission as a creative photographer is based on ten core values that I strongly believe in…
However, one core value stands out in my mind as the most important…the one I believe is the heart of my all portraits.
Children have a deep connection with animals, but much differently than we as adults feel towards them. Children view them as best friends to play with. When you think of a little girl who has a kitten, what does she want to do with that real live kitten? Take it for a stroller ride of course or dress it up and have a tea party with it. I understand that need to befriend animals and I try to portray that connection in my portraits! This friendly connection with animals is why I created dream pet portraits, so children could live out their fantasies of having any animal in the world as their best friend!
