2019 Pet Sitting

If you know me, you know, I love to win, I’ll take that dare and I never want to be like everybody else. 

So last year a buddy of mine challenged me to do a personal project that would last more than a day(I like to get things finished and move on to the next thing).  To say I was not thrilled about this challenge was an understatement. 

I took it in stride and began to love it and look forward to the trips I made that put Reunion Tower, a Dallas icon, in my path. I didn’t go out of my way but when I did travel this way i would open my sunroof, slow down and shoot Reunion Tower rain or shine. Anytime I drove by, somtimes it was 3 times a month and others 3 times in one day. 

A friend informed me that it was against the law to hold your smart phone and drive. Damn Her. I’m not a rule follower in general, it was the $300. ticket I could get if I continued with this project. There are days when I think about doing it anyway. I miss it. 

I shot over 1600 images in the short time I worked on this project. Here is a snippet of my work. I used the app 1second everyday. Cool stuff.





How it all Began

Raider(above) and his sister Slash were my very first dog sitting clients. I believe it was Thanksgiving 2012, though I’m not really sure. Not that it matters. Pet sitting wasn’t on my radar. A friends co-worker had their dog sitter cancel on them and was frantically looking for a replacement. My friend, Lisa mentioned I should take the gig since my photo business is slow during the holidays. I didn’t and still don’t have any of my own so, I was like what the heck, I love animals, I’ll do it. That’s how my pet sitting business came to be. I have about 75 clients so far. If you live in the DFW area or are will to fly me out, I’ll travel anywhere to take care of your babies.





Cuddle up with Bees

Bees don’t need a pet sitter, I know. A fun fact about me is I used to be a beekeeper. I could sit for hours just watching them work. The photo is of some of my bees! I put this image on all kinds of products including the pillow above.

My cuddle buddy last week. I so enjoy my time with him. Millie, his sister isn’t as cuddly and is too wiggly to get a photo of her.

Stop by my Animal Love board on Pinterest. Some of my art is there along with some of my friends work and a few things I found cute, sweet and adorable.

I’m always taking photos of animals with all the pet sitting I do, so I thought it was time to share them with you guys. I’ve added about 20 animals images I’ve shot over the years, with more to come of course. Check out my page where you can get them on a multitude of products from clothing to housewares and so much more.
