Studio Session for 2 (of 6!) Dogs: Skye & Emma

This session starts with a story! I’m currently working with a lovely veterinary clinic in Gulf Breeze to decorate their front lobby/waiting area, and a few weeks ago, one of the vets asks if he can purchase one of my gift certificates as a Christmas present for a client of his. Of course, I say! So I send him the gift certificate, head off to Christmas break, and don’t think about it again until I’m back in town again in January and working through my to-do list (which is so long it isn’t even funny)… anyways, at that time I get a random phone call from one of my VERY FIRST clients, an absolutely wonderful woman named Teri! Several of my clients call to catch up every now and again, see if the Navy has sent my husband and I out of the area yet, or tell me about dog- or photography-related news or events they think I’ll find interesting. One of the last times I saw Teri, she recommended Inside of A Dog, an absolutely fascinating book about how a dog thinks & experiences the world (which I highly recommend)! So we begin to catch up and I start wondering what book she’s going to suggest to me now… aaaand you’ve probably guessed the end of this story: Teri got the gift certificate from the vet! Ha! I love how life comes full circle like that! :)

It turned out to be perfect timing, too, because Teri & her husband had recently acquired a new dog, Skye. So they brought Skye into my studio, along with Emma, a Cairn terrier mix. I met Emma at our session two years ago, but she was a tiny puppy at that point, and I was shocked to see how much she’d grown and filled out since then! I absolutely relished the chance to spend more time with this family, and now after two sessions, we’re going to plan the best gallery wall display that’ll show off images of each of their six dogs!

I love Skye’s rare red coloring – and look at those EYES! Teri & Danny, it was a pleasure, as always! I’ll see you again soon!


Oh, one more thing: I didn’t have time to go digging through my archives today, but keep tabs on the Facebook page this week! I’ll post a photo of Emma two years ago next to one of her recent images! I bet you’ll be surprised at how she looked as a puppy!
