Are you the kind of person who would miss a day of work to celebrate your dog’s birthday? Or have you ever rescheduled plans because the weather was gorgeous and you could finally ride outside after a long winter? How about being late to meet someone because your cat was in your lap and you wouldn’t dream of disturbing her?

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, I strive to do more than just create memorable images; I want to create an experience that’s all about celebrating your pet and highlighting your special connection in a fun, relaxed environment. I love telling your story through 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 your furry family member is more goofy than elegant; it’s all about celebrating you and your pet’s unique style and personality!

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!
