If you were to ask anyone who knows me what makes me happy, they would all say the same three things: horses, cameras, and my dog. I am rarely seen without at least one of those things, and I am truly blessed that I am able to combine two of these loves as a way to make a living.
I grew up around horses, and competed in the Trillium circuit for several years before discovering natural horsemanship. Competing just isn’t for me, but I still love the atmosphere of a horse show. I can still be seen hanging around the show ring, however these days I tend to be at the fence with my camera instead of in the ring with my horse.
I love shooting animals, horses and dogs especially. And I really love capturing the bond between horse and human. Photography became a passion of mine after losing three horses to lightning. I was devastated when I realized just how few images I had of the horses that were lost. I picked up a camera as a hobby (back then not everyone had a cell, and the phones that people did have didn’t have great cameras on them), snapping pictures just for the memories. I like to think that what brought me into photography is what helps make my images special. If you’re like me, animals aren’t just pets to you. They’re a part of the family. And I would be honoured to help create long lasting memories for you to enjoy for years to come.
