My name is Lynette, the owner and photographer behind Willow Bee Photography. I always say that photography is my passion, and animals are my life. It seemed obvious to combine the two and become a pet photographer. I was born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, which couldn't be a better place for photography! When I'm not photographing you can usually find me at a concert, comedy show, stargazing, camping, sledding, or playing a seemingly endless game of fetch with Cordelia. I've had almost any pet you can think of. Rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, hamsters, cats, dogs, chickens, and even goats. I currently have 2 dogs, Willow & Cordelia, a formally feral cat named KitKat, and a rabbit named Peter. Random fact, Peter got his name from the TV show Fringe, not from Peter Rabbit. While I love all my fur babies equally, Cordelia is most definitely my main model. She works it for the camera.
I have not one but TWO tattoos dedicated to Willow. Her paw & name on my wrist, and her portrait on my left shoulder, behind my heart. Animal welfare is extremely important to me. I am a big believer in volunteerism and philanthropy. When I was younger I volunteered with the Humane Society for SW Washington doing dog socialization. Later in life I volunteered with the feral cat coalition of Oregon, assisting in surgery during spay and neuter procedures for feral cats.
