That’s me, above, the girl with the camera stuck to her face.
My hair is fire engine red and I prefer to sip my drinks through a straw.
If unicorns were real I would have nine in my backyard.
I like the monkeys with the colorful butts. (Mandrills.)
Animals are my favorite reason for living. There is something about the honesty in the eyes of an animal that gets me everytime.
I still can’t fully wrap my head around the fact that stars are really flaming gaseous balls of fire. It’s something I commonly ponder.
I want to snuggle every single dog that I meet. Even if they dont want to snuggle back. (lucky for me, usually they do.)
I like vanilla chai tea and observing people as they pass me by on the street.
Lightning bugs absolutely fascinate me.
It is my humble belief that life is for living and not just existing.
I started Dog Breath Photography on a hope and a whim. For as long as I can remember, my camera has always been at my side. Growing up, I would always trail behind my family on our outings – photographing every lovely thing I would see. Which to me, included sticks, rocks, bugs, grass, etc. (everything). And on my other side, opposite my camera, there was always my dog. A wagging, fuzzy ball of love that made everything better with his smile. Cameras and dogs have since become the most prominent things in my life.
I attended the University of Tampa in southwest Florida where I majored in visual arts and communication. There, I excelled in art and design and found an intense love for colors, artistic concepts and creativity. But, above and beyond the visual communications, art history, and design classes – my favorite classes were always the photography ones. After receiving my bachelor’s degree in 2009, it felt natural to turn towards photography. I began dabbling in photographing landscapes, architecture and portraits but quickly realized that I belonged doing the thing that I was the most passionate about – photographing dogs. (and cats! and horses! and anything that’s generally fuzzy with four legs!)
So, here I am. I feel so blessed to be able to live my dream of capturing perfect moments that people will be able to keep and cherish forever.
Thanks for stopping by and learning a little bit about the brain and the heart behind Dog Breath Photography.
Now, let’s make beautiful things happen.
