Specializing in photo restoration prior to becoming a professional pet photographer has been the key to producing high quality images. I receive many special requests, such as keeping dogs on leash in public locations for their safety. I make every effort to ensure my clients and their pups are at ease during a session. With a little patience and Photoshop magic, I remove those leashes and any other distracting elements (think drool, eye boogies, etc.) during post processing editing.
Clients who choose a Going with Grace session may also have special requests, especially if their pup is undergoing chemo and they prefer there not be a shaved paw in photos. This is something I pay close attention to and edit photos in a manner that brings out the absolute best in each pet. Going with Grace was founded to encourage having senior and ill pets documented before they cross the rainbow bridge and to provide a source of comfort in the form of timeless and unique photographs. I strive to create an uplifting experience which celebrates the life of each pet and the bond with their human. Clients usually keep in touch regarding their pet and once they cross the rainbow bridge, I add their personalized photo to my In Memory section of my website.
