Jenni - THE PHOTOGRAPHER
My love for photography started at age 15 in my first high school photography class, with my grandfather's hand-me-down Pentax film camera and an all-consuming obsession with the darkroom. I took every photography class I could fit into my schedule, and the first studio session I ever did was in the classroom with my friend's new puppy. When I graduated from high school, my parents gave me my first digital camera, just when they were becoming popular. All throughout college I become known as "the girl with the big camera." When I got my first dog Oats in 2011, I dove back into photography, documenting every moment of my new puppy's life. In 2017 I quit my full time job to manage Appalachian Tails Pet Company, a premium pet food and dog training store in Glastonbury, to dedicate my time to helping pet owners with nutrition, enrichment and inspiring the human-canine bond. With years of experience with dogs and their owners, I'm bringing my two passions together to bring my photography to other dog owners. I love capturing the unique personality of dogs and giving their owners the lifelong gift of their dogs as artwork.
