Why I love capturing the human – animal bond.


Through images I explore the human animal bond.

I capture love so that, cure when the time comes, treat you can look back and feel that feeling of love.

Images are powerful reminders that bring back memories and help to heal.

Images help us remember the good times, when maybe all we can see in the midst of grief is the horrible end. Images remove us from our present reality and create a warm feeling of safety, love, and kindness.

Having been through some extreme losses myself in the past few years, I understand the need for these images, and that is why I feel so strongly about capturing these bonds.

I want to show your companion as they are: happy, loved, and & bonded to you. You are their world. They are your world.
Car dogs. Couch dogs. Happy dogs. Hyper Dogs. (and cats, horses, goats, pigs…)

This is why I do what I do.

    My Favorite senior pic of Kiki is the one of her looking at Fiona on a paddle board. You do capture something special in your sessions 🙂

    Now that John has adopted Bear, you can really see how your one viral photo captured the heart of so many people worldwide… as the news of Bear and John and Schoep’s story has been on newcasts everywhere since KARE11 did such a wonderful video interview. You will be even more in demand, so keep your travelling bags packed!

    Perhaps you should volunteer to help John set up a gallery wall at his place for some of his favorite images and the paintings people have sent him in memorium. From the looks of that video, they may crumple or fall off the mantle into the fireplace. So much mail– he needs a room just for beloved Schoep.

    I’m sure we are all looking forward to his postings and pictures about Bear, and that one special photo taken by Hannah!

    As you stated, images are such powerful ways of capturing precious moments. As Leonard Nimoy wrote before his passing, ” Life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, only in memory.” Too often people neglect to capture those precious moments, and realize it only after that person or pet has passed.

    You have a special gift with your camera! Thank you!!
