Yesterday I came out of maternity leave for a very special JOY session for Chopper, the handsome boxer you will meet in this post. I love that these are called JOY sessions because, as I said when I got home, it was fun. Fun for Chopper to have a car ride to the park, fun for the family to relax and take their mind off losing a dear friend, and fun to laugh and see Chopper feeling better in those moments. I began my journey as a pet photographer after losing my buddy Tess, and I can directly relate to a family or individual who has said goodbye to a pet whom has been by their side for many years. These sessions are about heirlooms for the family, and happy memories shared together one last time. Thank you to Shannon and Steve for seeking me out for this session, and thanks to Chopper for being so funny and allowing me a few great shots. You are such a sweet guy.If you are interested in booking a JOY Session for your pet please contact me today, alana (at) abjphoto (dot) com.
