Why Bright Eyes?

It’s simple for me. It was love at first sight. And second sight.

My first sheltie, Mickey, looked at me with Bright Eyes.  I had 14 years of memories of that dog that I captured on film!

All of my dogs have had Bright Eyes. It’s how we’ve bonded with each other. Dogs are the most keen observers of humans and true companions as we travel through life.

Photographs preserve those memories.  That’s why when I had the chance to start my own business I choose to combine my two passions of animals and photography!  My style is documentary and journalistic as you’ll see in exploring my website.  My session packages are diverse and affordable.  And the goal is to bring out the joy and spirit of your pet while having fun! My approach is on location—I come to you—using natural light.

Baxter told me that he was a reluctant elf this year as his paws 🐾 are terrible at wrapping presents 🎁. He respectively asked if he could train to be a Santa’s reindeer next year as he’s a fasssttt runner and can herd kids . Do you think he’s making some good points? #doggoneelf #sheltiesofinstagram #sheltielove #shetlandsheepdog #northernvaphotographer ... See MoreSee Less
