Jennifer Gonzales is a Michigander turned Texan and is loving it. She became enchanted with photography at the tender age of six. Someone gave her a dollar store pixie camera with a flash stick. Santa had also brought her dog that year, and she used up all the film (and the flash stick) immediately by taking pictures of him. All the photos came back with a red cast to them and most came back totally black. But one turned out (still tinted red) where Jennifer had done a portrait of her dog and she had caught the fleeting expression on his face that she loved best. She still cherishes that photo.
Jen's photo "Patiently Waiting" is featured on page 55 of the 2010 Paws For Charity Art Book.“I love animals, I love photography, I love helping others. This project ties all three together, in a way that speaks to the heart on all levels. It is an absolute honor to be involved in Paws for Charity.” - Jen
