Our studio is equipped with state of the art digital technology which optimizes our ability to capture precise image detail and color fidelity while simplifying elements such as cropping and retouching.

Bonnie Illies
Animal Intuitive & Animal Healer

Since 1998, Bonnie Illies has been helping animals to heal when other methods have failed. Bonnie's clients appreciate her abilities as an Intuitive that enable her to see what is at the root of the animal's concern and, as a Healer, to help their animals recover from a variety of emotional and physical ailments. The process begins with a phone consultation in which you provide only the animal's name, age, and species. Bonnie prefers not to be informed about your animal's condition or symptoms until the end of the session — allowing her to get the animal's side of the story first.
