I can't remember a time in my life where I did not have a handful of pets. From dogs and cats, to chipmunks and turtles, and everything in between. When I was a little girl I would carry a critter keeper to all of my brother's baseball games to keep me occupied during the long innings. This is where I got the nickname Elly May. You know, the sweet daughter from Beverly Hillbillies with all the strange pets? All the baseball moms would ask, "Where is Elly May and all her critters?" It was pretty destined from my early years that I would grow to do something that involved my love for animals. Each and every pet I have ever had has filled a special place in my heart, but unfortunately, our best friends can't stay in our lives forever. This is why I have become passionate about capturing the beauty and love our pets share with us every day. I want everyone to have the pictures they deserve of their best friend; framed moments they can cherish forever.
