This photo session was beautiful and bittersweet. I was asked to capture the close relationship between one of my senior portrait customers and her precious dog who was battling an aggressive cancer. We met at their home after school one sunny spring afternoon, and what followed were some of the funniest, sweetest and most poignant moments between Bruce and his girl, Kate.
The funny moments came thanks to the 3 workers from National Grid who were jack-hammering right outside the window where we were shooting. Poor Bruce – the ever dutiful family watchdog – didn’t know whether to bark, whine or run for cover. Thankfully, he hung in there and settled into some beautiful poses with Kate, and what unfolded were the sweet and poignant moments that they had hoped for. RIP dear Bruce…you will be missed.
