Jen contacted me after finding out her dog was sick and realizing that she didn’t have any good photos of him or the three of them together. I didn’t have any openings until the following week, but in these type of situations when you really don’t know how much time you have left with them, I ALWAYS find a way to get them in sooner rather than later. Things can change so quickly.
I ended up moving some appointments in my calendar, so I could photograph them the next day instead. Needless to say, it was an emotional affair, but after the end of the session, and when she thanked me, it was a gentle reminder of why I’ve stuck with this path as long as I have. Despite the ups and downs, the uncertainty, the rejections, the loneliness of striking out on your own, and the sacrifices, this makes it completely worth it.
Thank you Jen and Vince for sharing your day with me so I could create images of your beautiful Chip. I hope that these bring you comfort over the years to come.
