I'm an international award-winning children’s portrait photographer in Beaver, West Virginia with eight years of experience in the field. I'm also a mom of four who loves animals.

There is something magical about the connection between children and animals, so I focus on capturing the innocence of the bond between them. Each image highlights this bond with a vivid, yet almost fairytale-like feel that's both fun and creative.

I'm inspired by paintings, color, light, and my kids. I put a lot of work into every detail in my imagefrom the wardrobe and location to hairstyles. There is so much that creates the perfect image; even the tiniest detail can change a photo from good to amazing.

I shoot with a Nikon D750 and use a 35mm sigma art or 85mm 1.4 Nikon lens. I prefer to shoot mainly outdoors and love to find new locations with pretty light.

I used to do this with our cat when I was little too—-and I’m 59 now! Only difference is I also had our best friend St Bernard dog following us both around. We were a tightly bonded trio.

For added comfort let the kitty sit in your hand while you support him.

Rats make the best pets! Clean and smart, and very personable. That little guy looks a lot like a rat I had in college named Dave.

I love how photos like this change people's opinions about rats. Many people still see only their awful and inaccurate stereotype but more and more realize what amazing and wonderful rats are every day.

Also contrary to popular belief rats are NOT dirty they are actually a very clean critter.

Every dog should have a kid, and every kid should have a dog. Or cat. Or any kind of pet. I don’t understand parents who won’t have animals in their family’s home—-extreme allergies or other prohibitive conditions aside.
