I am humbled to be an Aspiring Member of HeARTs Speak where artists share a common goal in helping homeless animals find their forever homes.

HeARTs Speak is “is a global network of animal photographers, artists, authors, graphic designers, and advocates who believe in the power of collaboration. We are a partner-based organization committed to making a positive and lasting impact with our members, other organizations and the greater community. We provide our partners access to images, stories, and services that help them further their cause. Together and united in our efforts, we are ambassadors of change.”

My love of animals started at a very young age and their welfare has always been a cause dear to my heart. I knew that until I won the lottery to save them all, I had to find a way to use my photography skills to make a difference. Over the past year, I have been given the opportunity to partner closely with our local rescue, For Paws Sake Canine Rescue, to photograph some of their rescued dogs, playing an important role in helping others see their souls through my lens and not letting their past define them.

I am honored and blessed to be able to work closely with such devoted and giving individuals who tirelessly volunteer their time to help save a dog from of a life of homelessness, abuse and neglect. And to see the affectionate dogs that I have met finally be loved by their own special person is rewarding, and I can’t think of a better way to give back. I love to also donate my services to fundraising/charity events in the pet communities such as fundraising walks and silent auctions. Please don’t hesitate to email me at stephanie@stephanie-photography.com if you have an event you need help with.
