If you are part of a rescue or shelter,
and have a project in mind you'd like to discuss, please contact me for information -
I welcome new opportunities to help our four-legged friends.
Animals are such a huge part of who I am and I have been dedicated to helping animals throughout my entire life. I love them and connect with them on such a deep level that I've often said I need them in my life as much as I need food, water and air. I've felt complete joy in watching an animal heal and thrive under my care, and cried a million tears for those I've lost or couldn't help.
Part of my dedication to animals is using my art as a means to give back, donating my services to various animal shelters, rescues and welfare organizations. Please check out the links below to see some of the projects and events I've photographed.
Doggy Derby 2015 - Halfway Hounds rescue group held their annual Doggy Derby event on May 2. Their biggest turnout ever to help our four-legged best friends!
“Loveabulls; Life and Love with Rescued Bullies” - a coffee table book that raised thousands of dollars to benefit the Pit Bull Initiative at Best Friend Animal Society in Utah.

Lots of smiles, lots of food and some pretty awesome hats for a great cause!
