About Me
​​​​​​I am a hobbyist photographer and a fan of cats. My family and I have a sweet little crew of kitties, most of whom came from All Cats Rescue of Sioux Falls, SD. Two were intentionally adopted, and two came to us as fosters, after having been in a life-threatening situation. These boys stole our hearts, and didn't stay fosters for long. 

Watching our sweet and frisky little boys as they grew, I remember feeling greatly relieved that they had found safety in our home, and I wanted to do more to help save at-risk animals. So in October of 2014, when All Cats Rescue put out the call for a volunteer photographer, I was pretty excited. I had always enjoyed taking photos of our kitties at home, particularly after getting my mitts on a DSLR camera. I had also read about and admired Seth Casteel and other photographers who promote the use of high quality photography to increase adoptions of homeless pets. I didn't give a second thought to joining the cause. 

I didn't have a clue what I was getting myself into, but have found photographing rescue cats to be as rewarding as it is challenging. I have now taken photos of over 400 cats and kittens and can honestly say that, while some have been more difficult to work with than others, each one has been wonderful. The only cats who were not friendly and loving were simply frightened - and who can blame them?

​Helping so many of these babies (and grown-ups) in taking the journey to their forever homes is something I am incredibly grateful to have been part of, and in the years to come, I look forward to helping many more of them to be adopted. The fabulous felines of All Cats Rescue keep me quite busy, but I would be happy to help other rescues, and am interested in photographing animals who are not of the feline variety, too!
