Freya of the snow
In case y'all wondered where I went... It's watching after this fluffernutter. This July I welcomed Freya the husky puppy into my life. She will someday be my skijoring buddy (the little training we've done shows she is a true to her breed natural). She's one of the smartest pups I've ever met and my buddy. Not so great off leash.... but we're working on it. I love my girl. 
In the Glade
So I've been absent for awhile now... Much has happened in the last few months, I swear I have a good excuse. I moved, I was married, I bought a house, I got a puppy, work has been busy and I've been training this little rescue horse with a friend. My in-laws lived with us all summer while they built a house (I hate it). Also, my computer has decided to be painfully slow, I can barely stand it these days. 

But in other news- I bought a new camera and I plan on doing more photography. You shall see more when I have a moment to myself and a moment to go through the bajillion photos I've taken. 

Above is myself and Artemis. Long story short a friend and I adopted her in December of 2015. She was malnourished, unkempt, and had no idea how to be a horse (separated from her Mom and others at three months). Using mostly natural horsemanship (and our own crazy methods) we have come far. This horse who could not lead in a halter... hell if I'm being honest you couldn't even catch her in the pasture. Now she lunges, longlines, stands in the crossties, lifts all her feet, goes on obstacle courses and we've started riding her. She's got the most gorgeous trot and looks damn flashy with her tight turns. She's an amazing horse who has come so far, and taught us much in the process. She wants to please and loves to work. Artemis pays attention to body commands, voice commands, the lariat position, and signals in the saddle. I'm so proud of her.

It's been ages since I was last online. I have so many photos to upload it's unreal. I just haven't had the time. Or a fast enough internet connection. 

My picture Noir (Previously called Streetlamp Spider) has won the Champlain Valley Fair's Best in Show (overall Photography) and First Place (street lamp) for 2014! I never expected this, but hey, it happens. I'm so glad my first year entering was a success. This will not be my last!


Once again I am open for commissions! Mostly looking for practice. I'd like to try scenery- but don't expect amazing things from that! 
  • Listening to: Purring Loki
  • Reading: Real Simple Weddings
  • Watching: Bourne Identity
  • Playing: Skyrim (as always)
  • Eating: Steak and Rice

JustChasingFireflies's Profile Picture
Artist | Student | Varied
United States
Hello! I recently graduated college with a double major in Anthropology and Environmental Studies with a minor in Wildlife Biology- though I really just want to study wolves.
I love photography, and I love drawing animals (especially fantasy)- though I've never had any classes or instruction on either.... I just sort of wing it.
I'm sorry I have so many pictures of cats. I have two in my apartment, and three back home... so I tend to take lots... I'm not a crazy cat lady don't worry. I love dogs.

My hobbies are broad. You may call me a jack of many trades, but not a master. I am a bit of an old soul and very outdoorsy! I am a hunter, an archer (I even make my own bows) and I love learning and using primal survival techniques. I love dog training and have trained my dog in the sport of skijoring (he pulls me while skiing on Nordic skis). Though I am an avid Nordic Ski endurance racer I have been doing Taekwondo for the last four years and am very close to my blackbelt! I love history and exploring historic homes and places in my hometown.
This is all kind or random. No rhyme or reason. I'm okay with that.

That's all for now. More later???

I'm here on DA to learn and get feedback.

If there is something you'd like to see more of, or a commission you have for me, I am usually open and would like to hear! I don't bite! :)

I am nearly always open to commissions!!!
