Adventure Awaits with Angela Schneider of Noses and Toes Pet Photography | Season 2 Episode 005 with Marika Moffitt of Dirtie Dog Photography
Today's episode is a conversation with my friend, Angela Schneider of Noses & Toes Pet Photography. Angela is an incredibly talented photographer (and writer) based in Spokane, Washington. Her work is adventurous, emotional and awe-inspiring. If you've been thinking about getting out of the city for an adventure with your dogs, get in touch with Angela to plan an amazing session.
"I focus on pets - mostly dogs - and their people. My goals with a session are twofold: one, to showcase your dog in the beautiful, incredible, amazing landscapes where we adventure and romp in Eastern Washington and North Idaho and, two, to find that sweet magical moment where there's just you, your dog and my camera. Nothing brings me to tears quicker than seeing that one image, that one frame that says 'I love you and you love me.'" - Angela

"You can't control anything, cutie pie." | Season 2 Episode 001
Welcome to Season 2 of the Seattle Pet Collective podcast!
You have heard me say this before, but collaboration is my love language. Season two of this podcast is going to be full of so much love because it is going to be all about collaboration with some of the most wonderful women I know. A few months ago, I realized that the next step in my journey with this podcast, this community, is to bring more voices, more hearts and more joy to this space. The best way I know how to do that, is to bring in my friends. So, that's what we've done.
I am so freaking excited to welcome my friends Lauren, Tracy and Holly to this journey of sharing stories with the Seattle pet community.
In this opening episode, we talk about how weird 2020 has been, what we have learned and what our hopes are moving forward. We have big plans for what happens next with Seattle Pet Collective, and we are excited to bring you all along for the ride.
Please check out all of these amazing ladies, and support the incredible work they do in our community:
Lauren Hartley, owner of All Dog Kind
