What is "A Dog's Life a Woman's Story" project?

In March of 2023, I decided to publicly share a pivotal part of my adolescence, detailing the relationship I had with my every other weekend dog Conan, after my parents' divorce. My story ultimately ends at 12 years old with my father's suicide and losing my heart dog. But in the grand scheme of things, I've now realized all these years later, that it was most certainly not the end. It was the beginning of something much greater than I could ever fathom at the time. CLICK HERE TO READ MY PERSONAL STORY.

Would you like to tell your story?

I am looking for women of all ages that would like a personal portrait experience that focuses solely on the love and relationship between you and your special pup. Share a story of a time in your life that was extremely challenging, rewarding, maybe even life altering, when you found absolute comfort in your dog.

The goal of this project is to delve intimately into our own personal setbacks and achievements. Through sharing our stories, we are allowing others the opportunity to relate and share in our experiences, ultimately finding common ground at the center, our heart dogs. Realizing that regardless of the challenges we encounter and overcome, our dogs are there for us in a way that only we can understand.

What are my plans for your story?

Select stories and portraits will be shared via blog posts and social media. Once enough are collected, I intend create a series of publications. In addition, a portion of each session fee will be donated to local nonprofits who's main objective involves working with dogs to help benefit the lives of humans.

2023 Donation

Thanks to those of you that not only participated in this personal project, but that shared with friends, donated session fees and helped spread the word in any way.

What magical editing do you perform?

A.Included with your session:

Leash removal, eye boogies, hair removal from clothing, red rockets, background distractions, etc.

Anything that I view as the artist that may impact the overall integrity of an image, will be removed.

What if I don't want my face or name associated with my story?

A.This is 100% fine and understandable. If you would prefer that when your story is shared, that the portrait chosen for the story allows anonymity, you will have the opportunity to select this as an option upon booking your session.
