Hi there, I'm Sheila.
I grew up with my nose in the story of Black Beauty, and there I found my love of horses. Childhood brought riding lessons and my very own horse! Involvement in 4-H, along with competing locally and nationally sealed the deal. I lived and breathed horses. By the time I ended my riding career, I had three World titles and numerous regional awards.
As for my love of dogs, I grew up with just one dog, but promised myself I would have at least five when I was an adult. I met my husband through our dogs! Love of four-legged friends really is a family affair.
My interest in photography began in high school, as I wanted to forever remember the horses I saw around the ring at shows. I began to realize that we have these best friends for just a snapshot of our life, and keeping actual photos of them would forever preserve the sweet memories we stored up together.
So you see, this is more than just a job; this is the accumulation of my life loves. It’s my passion.
We have owned and loved many dogs and horses over the years. I enjoy the companionship and love dogs bring to their owners. I’m also a lover of mutts and rescues, and spent time serving the Allen Animal Shelter as pet photographer and advisory board member.
When I’m not up to my elbows in furry four-legged friends, I enjoy my human family, antiquing and scrapbooking our adventures. Plus, I’m always sporting tennis shoes; I have over 30 pairs!
Interested in working together? It would give me great joy to preserve memories with you!
"Let a horse whisper in your ear and breathe on your heart.
You will never regret it."
