I’ve just finished up a session tonight. It was a special one, a lady and her beloved dog. This dog doesn’t have a lot of time left here on Earth, and we captured their relationship for his human to remember forever.
I am so pleased that we were able to get the session done, since I’ve had a few that I didn’t get done before…well, you know. It is always one of my biggest regrets, hearing “I always wanted to put Jimmy in our family photos… We just kept waiting until next year.
There are no guarantees, don’t wait for next year…make sure you include your pet in your family portraits, have him or her photographed alone as a puppy and an adult. By all means, take a lot of snapshots! I hear time and again, that portraits of loved ones who are gone are the most treasured possessions.
Do your best to have no regrets. Keep those memories forever!
