"In the Beginning....."

Well, I did it! I finally gave in and decided to enter the world of the “Blogger”. Don’t know what direction it will take or if it will be interesting or not, but I’ve always enjoyed writing, so I figured “what-the-heck, let’s give it a shot and see what happens"! When I started my photography I had no idea I would be doing the things I am doing now. It might be fun to see if the Blog turns into a pleasant surprise as well.

But what I would really like from this Blog is for it to help put more of a personality or familiarity to the message of my photography. You have no idea how much I love taking photos for you. Our veterinarian, Dr. Al Raymond, has told us many times that he treats the animals he sees as if they were his own—and it shows! We’ve never had such a wonderful vet for the pets we have taken to him--and that has meant the world to us! I look at my photography in the same way. When I take photos of your pets I treat those photos as if I were taking photos of my beloved Maxx and Lucy. My pups are so very important and dear to me. I understand that you feel the same about your pets, so how could I possible treat what I do for you any less than I would do for myself.

Not only that, but in all the events that I have been covering, and in making so many friends at these events, I’ve come to love your dogs, too. I’m so happy to see them again, to watch and photograph them as they grow and compete. There’s nothing like a happy dog doing what he loves—it can’t help but energize you and put a smile on your face! The friendships I’ve made with their “humans” is something I treasure, too. Y’all are some of the most wonderful people I have ever known. Thank you for allowing me to share a small part of your life. I’ll try my best to photograph and preserve some of your treasured memories…as if they were my own.

VERY Sincerely,
