I love to share when my photography has been published or featured outside of my work with clients. Check out these pieces below!

Pet Connection Magazine


This March/April 2016 issue of Pet Connection Magazine featured sweet Fiona – a dog who has been available for adoption at Emerald City Pet Rescue since July 2014.

Fiona is part of the “Why Not Me” social media campaign that was spearheaded by Pawsitive Alliance. I have photographed Fiona numerous times, and this portrait was featured in the North Puget Sound edition as a part of their animal heroes issue.
