Hi! I’m Cheryl and I’m based in Lansing MI, where I live with my family, which includes Grizwold, a big lug of a german shepherd, and Gracie, a sweet pitty girl whom have both have stolen my heart.

While I wasn’t born with a camera in my hands, I sure was born to love dogs!!!   I AM that CRAZY DOG LADY!  I can be walking down the street and if I see a dog I go completely weak in the knees.  My passion is photographing dogs. They are faithful, loyal and so loving, and this should be reflected in photography.

I got started in photography well over a decade ago when I was involved in dog rescue.  I’d chase my foster dogs all over the place on hands and knees trying to snap that perfect picture so they could find a forever home.  My love for dog photography is as strong as ever and if I could do it 24 hours a day I would.

I am thankful, and beyond grateful that through this learning and growth, I have gained clients that have also become friends. I love having the opportunity to capture moments for the people that trust me with their memories.
