Relationship Inspired Photography

Fast forward 25 years and that photograph continues to motivate me to capture the moments that count. The real ones that are inspired by the relationships that we have with our pets, how they look at us, and the places that we go with them.

I Got Adopted

"I wasn't getting adopted so we decided that I needed better pictures that showed what a good dog I was. Guess what? I got adopted!"

The Power of Photography

"Photographs are very powerful! When my parents divorced, my Dad didn't know that my brother and I got dropped off at a shelter far from home. Because we were such good dogs we were asked to be models for a fundraiser. My Dad was shocked to see this photo, and called the shelter right away. This one photo brought us home again!"

Top Model

"I was worried that I was too short to be a model but today I got to go for a long walk and wear great gear furnished by EZYDOG! It made me smile from ear to ear!"
