Jasmine was born and raised in New Jersey. She entered the Fashion Institute of Technology with the desire to be the next Manolo Blahnik but graduated with a bachelor's degree of Photography instead. After assisting for fashion photographers, she met a pet photographer that needed extra help. Being a lifelong animal lover, she was a natural at making sure the animals were at ease and creating a fun environment for them. She immediately realized animals were way more interesting subjects than models. Jasmine moved to Brooklyn and started working in doggie daycares throughout Manhattan. She reveled in every aspect of pet care from being an activities director; to a chef; to a trainer; to a masseuse; to her favorite role of all, being a friend to each and every animal she meets. She feels tremendous satisfaction for having the opportunity to be inspired daily by these extraordinary four-legged friends.
