My passion resides in Pet Personality Portraits, Character portraits and business portraits that concentrate on the needs of the organization and the personality of the clients. My one piece of sage advice is to “Take what you do seriously but with passion and a sense of humor…we get to do every day what some people can’t wait to retire to pursue is a life calling.”
