Meet Gracie, she is the bestest friend of C’s. Gracie is about 13 years old now, and has grown up with C since she was 3 years old. They just adore each other, and a few years ago I took some images of them together to celebrate that bond. We created some fantasy conceptual images that C and I collaborated on, she had some great ideas, and we had a blast. Fast forward 4 years and I get an inquiring from the family regarding an updated session, specifically for Gracie, and C.
You see, Gracie got into a bit of a row with a raccoon and although she won the little tussle the whole thing caused her family to realize how special and how short our pets lives are. The incident also induced some nightmares for C who began to worry about losing her bestest friend. As a young girl, your dog or cat really is your everything. I mean you tell your bestest’s all your fears, dreams, and frustrations. And this is the type of bond that they have. So of course when we booked in right away, in one of my favorite spots to shoot sessions and even with the threat of rain we had moments of gorgeous light, lots of laughter, created memories and captures some beautiful pieces.
