Welcome to the Fetching Images website! We are

headquartered in Greenville, SC but provide

periodic service to Houston, TX. I love to travel,

so if you'd like me to come to your area, drop

me a line. There are so many fabulous

photography sites on the web, so I appreciate the

fact that you are spending some time here.

I hope you enjoy what you see and that you will check

back often for new content.


While I haven't always made a living as a photographer,

I feel that I have always been living as one. I asked for

and received my first camera at the age of 8, and I can

still recall the excitement of sending film off in those little

mailers and running to the mailbox every day looking for

my photos. Holding a camera gave me a very different

perspective on the world around me which quickly turned

into a passion to document that world.


And while I continue to photograph a variety of subjects,

I specialize in artistic imagery of pets utilizing natural

light. My goal is to create timeless images reflective of

each animal's unique personality. If you are

considering hiring me for your photography session,

please know that I love what I do and that I

collaborate very closely with my clients to reach the

desired results. I have degrees in Psychology and

Occupational Therapy, as well as years of experience

and training as a photographer. I have lived abroad

and traveled extensively both of which have fueled my

photographic desires as well as enabled me to work

with a variety of clientele.


Be sure to follow along on the Instagram, Facebook, and  Twitter.

You'll find additional work in the online edition of Life + Dog Magazine.


Thanks again for visiting!
