About Me

A little about me. I grew up in McKinney, Texas.  I’m pretty sure my mom will tell you she saw this coming.  When I was five years old, I took her oil paints and painted our dog, the floor, the curtains, the sofa.  I added a little color to the upstairs den.

It was only a matter of time, before my love of dogs and my love of photography would meet, have dinner, and go on to live a healthy life together. That happened when I started spending a lot of time with my wife’s family, who runs St. Cloud’s Rescue for Saint Bernard dogs.

I wanted to help these great dogs find forever homes. After dusting off my camera, I began photographing the dogs for St. Cloud’s website. That lead to me to taking a portrait of every dog they rescue.

If you don’t know, St. Bernards are a very helpful breed. They encouraged me to start photographing other dogs, too.

So now, that’s exactly what I do. I continue photographing all of St. Cloud’s dogs, and have started helping out with DFW Pug Rescue as well.

I am always trying to figure out the best way to help find forever homes for rescued dogs. As it turns out, following my love of animals and photography does just that.
