A bit about me: I adore my family. I love a good nap. I love rainy, cool days. Temperatures ranging from 60-80 are my absolute favorite. I love to go country- western dancing, and I love photography and animals. The last two just made sense to do together. I've been doing photography as a hobby since high school and raising and training dogs since I was a child. I have five Border Collies. They keep me busy.  I do agility, trick dog training, disc, and commercials with some of them. My dogs are my models for photography when I want to try something new or to celebrate one of their milestones. They love being in front of the camera. I guess that happens when you're raised in front of a camera. I absolutely love being around dogs- they are always so happy; however, I tend to love being around lots of creatures of the furry typeI
