I adore old dogs, their personalities always make me laugh, I mean, I really wish they spoke to us I would love to know what they think. Anyhow, I had the pleasure to work with a senior pair of 12 years young, and just adorable. Luna and Shadow are Sister and Brother, thick as thieves and partners in crime. We had booked a Limited Edition Porch session for June 6. June on the island is a tricky month, sometimes it is one of the wettest times of the year when it should be going into summer so it was touch and go. On the upside the home they live is had loads of room, and great light so there was a backup but everything cleared up just in time and we got some wonderful images of these seniors.
This is Luna, a graceful aging beauty living the life at 84 years old she still guards her people. They say age mellows you but not Luna, she is spry and attentive as a 35 year old. Luna had a bit of a rough start as she is a rescue pup (thank you Victoria Humane Society for being amazing) but quickly found her furever home with bro Shadow.
This is Shadow, a little bundle of sass and class. Shadow is the chill of the pair, and loves to just watch what is going on at all times. I think it's because he's looking for some fallen morsel of food or treat. He is another graceful senior at 84 as well he's a grandpa basically, but when you look at his face you can still see his quirky little puppy behind the grey beard.
Luna and Shadow's mum was so happy we could make this happen, at their age you just don't know how much longer you will have them around, and she has been planning a session for quite a while. All the stars aligned and I am so happy we could make it happen.
