This session was such a special session for me. I received an email from one of my childhood best friends, who’s since moved across the world to New Zealand and has started a beautiful family with her hubby. She emailed to inform me that she would be back in town to visit and wanted to get some family portraits of not just her immediate family, but with her parents, and her siblings and their significant others. While it’s been a good while since I last got to see my dear friend Jen, it’s been even longer since I’ve seen her family. Probably a good 15+ years. So it was amazing to see these familiar faces again after all these years. But another part of what made this session so special is that Jen’s brother Chris, and his wife, brought their dog Tyler along for some photos. Sadly, this was the last photo session for Tyler. He passed away just a few days later. 🙁 But it makes me incredibly glad that I was able to capture some precious moments of Tyler with his family before he went to doggy heaven.
