PETS ARE MY PEOPLE

 

For as long as I've been on this earth, I've always had a pet of some kind - or usually lots of kinds :) Growing up I always had dogs, rabbits, birds, fish and even fostered a turtle for a short period of time.

I was always that kid that had stories about the dog following them home, or the going to a neighbours house and playing with their cats more than the people.

I always just connected better with animals than with their human counterparts. I was a bit of a shy kid. Always prone to watching on the sidelines and seeing how everything worked before trying my hand at something. And when you're a kid, that doesn't always allow you to easily make friends.

But animals.... they never had a problem that I was quiet, that I liked to read, that I was happiest creating stories and imaginary worlds.

So I bonded with my dogs, my animals, my furry friends.

 
 

 

These days, I'm a little better meeting people and making friends but theres still part of the shy, introverted girl inside who finds parties terrifying, who feels awkward in social situations and who has to force myself to engage in this situations because I know that once I do - it's usually fine. But until I do... it's terrifying.

BUT PETS... THEY JUST MAKE EVERYTHING BETTER.

I truly believe that pets MAKE a home.

They fill us with love, with laughter and with joy and they do it all just by being their themselves.

And though their lives may not be as long as ours - they truly live in the moment and enjoy every last breath of it. And I think that's something we can all aspire to do as well.

Having a pet pulls you more fully into a moment, a place in time, and what's happening right now - and makes you appreciate all the little things about them so much.

Don't get me started on my cat's toe beans and the little tufts of hair that's between them! I have sooooo... many… photos… of her paws it's embarrassing ;)

 

 
 
 
 
 

I think we all have those 'things' that we love about our pets. And it's my job to be able to capture them for you, so that when you see your photos for the first time - all you can think is... that's so Izzy, Toffee, Jett, Mercy (insert your pet's name here).

I'm there to document and capture all those things that you love so much about your pet. So that you can look at them and smile everyday. And so that one day (hopefully in the far, far distant future) you have amazing images you can look back on to remember your pet by and all the love and laughter you shared with them.

That's why I do this. And that's what I can do for you.
