Ready for My Close-Up

Is your pet ready for their “Close-Up?” When I first conceived of the idea for Bell’s Furry Friends Photography (BFF Photography for short) I thought about all the ways I could get my name out there. Then, it came to me as I was cleaning. An exhibition of my work! Isn’t that always the way? As […]
