About Wag to my Heart
Well hello there, I’m Danyel Rogers the owner & photographer of Wag to my Heart. It’s so sweet of you to stop by and see what I’m all about.
ABOUT – MY LEFT BRAIN/RIGHT BRAIN CAREER
Many people believe you’re either right brain or left brain, however I’m BOTH!
During the week you can find me at Noyes Development Co. where I’ve been their Controller/Accountant since 2006. Yup, you heard right, an Accountant!!!! Insert the left brain aspect of my world. I’ve been in the accounting industry since 1994. (Wow how’s that possible) Shortly after starting with Noyes the housing market started to tank. I was forced to have a heart to heart with myself and what I was going to do.
Next up, all things related to the right side of my brain. In 2008 I started my journey in the photography industry. I did everything I could do to learn and become a great photographer. I read books, watched tutorials, went to seminars, joined groups, and lots of practice. For several years I was doing business as Danyel Rogers Photography. As time passed I realized what my niche was; ANIMALS and the families that love them.
What I was noticing in the photography industry you were either a pet photographer or a family photographer. Wag to my Heart bridges that gap. Include your furry best friend in your senior portraits. Invite the ENTIRE family to your portrait session. Your animals are just as much a part of your family as your children are. At least in my world they are.
Portland , Oregon is a fantastic place to live for dog lovers. We have countless dog parks, special events, doggy hotels, and boutique shops focused completely on dogs. There’s rescues scattered all over the Portland Metro area helping sweet lovable dogs find new homes.
Speaking of rescues, Wag to my Heart is deeply devoted to volunteering as much time as we can to support these non-profit organizations. We photograph adoptable dogs to showcase their true personality. Wag also volunteers to help capture special events to attract more awareness to their cause. Giving back to the community and these animals fills our hearts with happiness. If you’d like more details about our rescue work CLICK HERE!
ABOUT – MY FAMILY & I
The thing I’m most passionate about is my family. My husband and I have been married for 10+ years and we have 3 stunning girls. Many of our sessions include my husband who’s my amazing assistant. Our girls are quickly growing up and moving out. We will soon be empty nesters.
I am mostly known for my obsession with my 3 dogs (Shih Tzu Poodle & 2 Hababi Bears). They are spoiled rotten and come to the Noyes office most days. The dog fixation doesn’t stop with them, which is why I started Wag to my Heart. I stop almost every pet parent so I can say hi to their dogs. I can’t help it. They’re just so darn cute, and make every day a better one.
When you’re a returning client of Wag you will notice my hair is an ever-changing feature of mine. Any profile picture is surely not a representation of my most current hairstyle and/or color. Last month I had mid length white pinup curls and a few months later it’s a purple mohawk.
People often refer to me as a Kate Hudson look-a-like, which is a complete honor because she’s drop dead gorgeous.
A Piece of my Heart
