For over 30+ years as a business consultant, I’ve helped multiple companies and industries change and transform. Now I am bringing my valuable skill sets and knowledge to the field of health and wellness. My current focus is serving others as we mature in age to adjust our mental wellness to have the best health ever, regardless of AGE.
My son and I have found amazing all natural solutions that have helped us stop “necessary” medications, sleep better, improve mood, focus, energy and more!
I would love to share more of our journey with you. Let’s connect!

I am a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) by the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) who specializes in on-location photography of pets and their families.
Dogs are my favorite subject to photograph and I know how to get their attention to capture that perfect moment!
I offer professionally-printed artwork (wall decors, prints and albums). I believe in the value and the importance of using professional grade paper and archival ink to preserve your special memories.
A session with Gaelle Pet Photography starts with a complimentary design session. We’ll talk about your ideas and your goals for the session and how to get ready. This meeting can be in person or online. The day of the session is meant to be a fun and relaxing experience that you’ll always remember. We’ll meet 2 weeks after the session to reveal the images and order your prints. All images will be professional edited and retouched prior to you once you made your choice. Rest assured that I’m there to help you at every step to make sure that the photo and artwork selection is not too overwhelming.
When not taking pictures, you’ll find me practicing yoga, hiking, spending time with my family, traveling or volunteering at The Denver Animal Shelter.
