It wasn't until I was 30 that I truly figured out what I wanted to do in life. That animals were a true passion. I spent 10 years working as a photographer in the portrait industry running my studio. I had followed what I thought was my dream and yet I wasn't entirely fulfilled. Once I discovered pet photography, I felt energized and it quickly became all I could think about. I soon realized that although I enjoyed it, it wasn't only the photography that kept me smiling all day, it was working with the animals!
Ever since I was a child I have genuinely and truly love every animal on the planet and In the past 35 years, I have never been without a pet. I have had dogs, cats, parrots, rats lizards, fish turtles, hamsters, and truly loved horse back riding. As a child I was always catching insects and other creatures from my backyard pool and would nurse them back to life in my shoebox "animal hospital". Watching any creature just be would amuse me for hours.
Since starting Pup Strut I now feel more in tune with all life, nature and the earth. This new life has brought me an understanding of who I am. I cannot imagine my life without animals surrounding me. I am so happy as a Gravenhurst dog walker, I get to enjoy the outdoors and see my furry friends everyday!
Animals are genuine, loyal and non-judgmental and will give you more love than your heart can hold – no strings attached.
Chew on this...
Hi, I'm Natalie! I’ve always had a connection with animals for as long as I can remember, I feel at ease, relaxed, I am genuinely happy when with them. I have a great deal of respect for them and feel we have so much to learn from our pets.
