I've always loved animals, whether wild or domestic, and greatly enjoy the challenge and rewards of photographing them. A dog or cat might not sit cooperatively for a portrait - much like busy children, haha - so I get to employ a little creativity in capturing them on camera. For many of us our pets are our best friends, our family members, our confidants and companions in good times and bad. Why not include them in a family portrait, or have a portrait shoot dedicated to them! I am up for any type of pet...don't leave out the scales, feathers or fins!
