My first senior hospice dog, Tyra, was only given 2 weeks to live. Despite the odds she lived a happy, adventurous, fun filled year with us. I knew I would be heart broken when she was gone and I wanted a way to remember her forever. I photographed her as a way to secure the details of what made her so special and make sure the memories lasted for ever.
I want to do the same thing for you. I wouldn’t want you to forget the details of what is, what was, and what will always be important to you.
I have always been an artist. One of the first creative things I did was change my name. Alexandra was a bit of a mouthful for me as I was learning to talk, so when asked what my name was I said Anja Lou instead. Incase you are wondering it's pronounced with a J sound not a ya sound. Anja Lou became my childhood nickname – And it's stuck with me ever since!
When I am not out photographing I am taking the best care of my senior gal Bella who's 15.5! She is the light of my life!!!! In addition to my photography business I also own Bella B's BARK-ery where I hand make dog accessories of all kinds like collars and personalized bandanas plus I make treats and so much more!
