Above and beyond anything else, I'm an animal lover.  All animals.  I'm originally from Maine, land of black flies, frost bite, and a beauty that holds a burning place in my heart.  A few years ago I landed in California. Now I make do without winter.  There are worse things that could happen.

I am hopelessly addicted to the American Saddlebred - a breed that endlessly surprises and delights me.  When I do get the chance to slap my backside in a saddle, I pretend to noodle around with dressage... admittedly in a rather unorthodox manner, but I'm still calling it dressage - so there. 

I worked in the horse industry as a riding instructor and trainer as well as a stable and breeding manager for many years, so I know my way around a horse and photograph them with the eye of an insider.  I have worked with hunter/jumpers, dressage, event, driving, saddleseat, and western horses.  I have handled stallions, broodmares and babies.


My passion is photography and within that is the drive to create stunning artistic images. I strive to capture the essence and personality, the drama and spirit of each individual, whether that be a champion or cherished companion. Large and small, I adore them all.

At home, my husband and I have three beautiful pinto American Saddlebreds, a miniature donkey (who is a local celebrity in her own right), three goats, two cats, a Border Collie, and three chickens. The creatures around us enrich our lives so much. Catching "that look" or "that moment" is a great reward.
