How Blogging Improved My Photography

I would like to begin by saying, I’m not a professional photographer. I’m a hobbyist at best. But I’ve come a long way in my time as a pet blogger. I want to be proud of the images that accompany my text.  As some of you may know, photographing animals is no easy feat.

I’ve always been a creative sort whether art or writing stories.

Adulthood and three children later I really have lost a lot of my previous skill through lack of practice, which is so incredibly frustrating.  When I started my blog, I picked up our gorgeous Nikon and dusted it off.



This blog has become a wonderful excuse to put my thoughts down in orderly fashion and to take photos with a purpose!



I love animals and capturing the way they move. Now as a blogger, I’m trying to capture that in film.


Color and angles are very important to me, but most importantly, I hope to make a connection.  I’m learning a lot. Learning is my favorite as you all know by now. I hope you enjoy my photos and see my growth through them. Thank you for following me on my journey.

  1. Amazing shots! Thanks for the tips!

  2. Your images are beautiful! It’s so rewarding when you photograph something you love and they become creative works of art. Gorgeous!

    1. Thank you so much Elaine! I hope others can view animals the same way I do through my photography. They give me unending amounts of personality and inspiration.

  3. Beautiful photos! I loved photography when I was younger, but then grew away from it. Starting the pet blog renewed my interest too, and I love working on my skills (which were pretty rusty, and still need a lot of work!).

    1. Thanks Jan, I completely feel the same way! I appreciate your comments. Have a fantastic day.

  4. What gorgeous photos you share here. I especially love your top shot. Photographing black cats is not easy, and you did a lovely job there. Keep up the good work!

    1. Thank you, Jean! I completely agree that photographing black fur is hard. To get a good picture of Gonzo I usually have to get him in natural light. In that top shot my cat was sitting at the window basking, so I got these beautiful shadows and highlights. Thank you for following along.

  5. Blogging helped me improve my photography too. Good imaged are a must to be a successful blogger. These photos are really beautiful! I love the angles you captured.
