As usual, I have lots to catch up on, so here are a few highlights from the last couple of months!
And here are my friends Lucy and Lacy - back for shoot #2 of their Puppy Package in June. I'm LOVING getting to see them grow up! They're still rambunctious and puppy-like but they're starting to get their adult "look". As you'd probably guess with sisters, they're VERY close - they don't like to be apart even for a little while. Their personalities are very distinct and luckily very complimentary and they get along great most of the time. Next shoot they'll be "big girls" - I can't wait!
Kia reminded me of a subject I've wanted to address for potential clients but haven't found a good way to include in my FAQ. The death of your best friend. When I was first distributing postcards to advertise my business, a lovely lady pet store owner who shall remain unidentified told me that "People only hire pet photographers when their dog is about to die". She was wrong, of course, but I remember thinking at the time "And this is a bad thing?" My job is to help you document and remember your animal friends, whether it's at the beginning of their lives or the end. I am so honored to get to do this for people when their pet is dying. Sure it's sad, but it's LIFE and I find these shoots to be poignant and sweet and a fitting celebration of a well-lived life.
Kia's owner had just received a diagnosis from the vet that didn't leave Kia with very much time. She wanted to get some photos of Kia before she started to look sick or different and I was more than happy to shift my schedule around so we could do it as soon as possible.
I will gladly do this for anyone, anytime. Just ask.
