Kimberly, it’s been too long since we last connected. Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts with our community again. Some readers might have missed our prior conversations, so maybe you can kick things off for us with a quick intro?
I’m a photographer that specializes in dog portraits! I love pets, and believe pets are what keep us happy and thriving. I am also a rescue and shelter dog advocate. I volunteer at Maricopa County Care and Control, not only taking photos to help them get seen and adopted, but also walking the dogs and collecting donations for them.
What do you specialize in with your photography?
I specialize in bright, bold and colorful images of dogs! I strive to bring out the personality of each dog I photograph! I also love to help pet businesses showcase their brands!
How long have you been photographing?
I have been photographing for ten years, and photographing dogs exclusively for almost 2 years.
How do you give back to the community?
I give to to the community by donating photo sessions to non profits and dog rescues. I love to Day Foster at Maricopa County Animal Care & Control and then take them for a photo shoot to highlight them! I also collect enrichment items for the county shelter and Lost Out Home Pet Rescue and drop them off to their locations.
What advice would you give to someone interested in a dog photo session?
The advice I would give is to not worry about your furry friend’s behavior during the session. One of the things I hear the most is that “my dog isn’t trained”, “my dog is scared” or “my dog is aggressive”. I can accommodate to most situations. I do not need to be near a dog to photograph them, I just want them to be relaxed as they can be. I can come to a client’s home and kind of be a “fly on the wall”. As far as not being trained, most dogs I photograph are not trained! I would also advice to grab those photos when you start to see the white hairs and the slower walks. Remember all the stages of your dog’s life! I love to photograph puppies, the teenagers (haha I know you love that dog teenager stage!), adults all the way through their senior chapter.
What types of packages do you offer?
I offer a variety of packages. I mostly offer print packages. I encourage clients to print their memories and art work. I also have special pricing for my Tribute Sessions (end of life sessions), a package for pawrents that rescued their pup from Maricopa County Care & Control and packages that offer beautiful albums or wall art.
Alright, so before we go, how can our readers connect with you to learn more and show support?
