Some people just don’t get it. You know the people. The ones that comment “Are you saying that you can’t make it to my party because it’s your dog’s birthday?” or “Didn’t you just see your horse yesterday, you really need to go to the barn again?”, and my personal favourite, “What do you mean you can’t meet me for coffee because your cat is in your lap???”

I have definitely been guilty of some of those, and I bet you have too! I believe that those little moments spent enjoying your pet’s presence form the foundation of strong, lifelong bonds that non-animal people don’t always understand. With Next to Wild Photography, it’s all about celebrating your pet and highlighting your special connection in a fun, relaxed environment. I love to create natural, true-to-life photographs, with an elegant and classic style that you will be proud to show off in your home. My goal is to produce images that ignite a spark of joy every time you walk by them. And not to worry if you think your furry family member is more goofy than elegant, loveable goofballs are my favourite (although I might be biased as my horse Pickle certainly fits into that category)!

Aside from photography and animals, my other passions include collecting more board games than I have time to play, reading (I especially love Lord of the Rings), and Disney. I am always up for reliving an amazing Disney trip, or excitedly talking about upcoming travel plans!
