The Tripawd Name

Tripod  trīpäd (noun): a three-legged stand for supporting a camera or other apparatus.

Tripawd  trīpäd (noun): a beloved three-legged (three-pawed) pet.  

Angel was my own precious little tripawd poodle.  She was hit by a car and narrowly survived.  She endured multiple surgeries including an amputation.  After a long recovery she was back to being a happy, energetic little girl and my constant companion. She passed in 2015 and I miss her constantly.

I tried to commemorate her first steps after the accident using a point and shoot camera, with very disappointing results.  This began my photography journey and I have loved every step of the way. The Tripawd Photography name was a perfect fit, combining the photography tool (tripod) and the inspirational story of Angel.


I have a wonderful husband, 6 rescue dogs, 1 miniature donkey, 3 goats, and 50 or so chickens. I enjoy being outdoors with my husband and animals, spending time with family and friends, home making, reading, pet sitting, and of course, photography. My aim in life, though I often fail, is to glorify, fear and enjoy God for all of life.
