The way these clients came into my life, or me into theirs depending on your perspective, is quite serendipitous. Our dogs met first. :)
I was walking Kooper around my neighborhood, which I happen to do twice a day because:
a) He is high needs and spoiled rotten.
b) I love where I live and love walking around my 'hood.
c) We both love our walks together.
d) It breaks up long editing sessions with some fresh air and sunshine and makes me happy.
During one of those walks Kooper very happily approached a SUPER sweet dog named Odi who is just the most adorable, gentle spirited and fantastic dog. Kooper and Odi were enjoying getting to know each other more than just a passing sniff so I started talking to Odi's owner, Delphina, and noticed that she was expecting. We started talking and I enjoyed her company as much as Kooper enjoyed Odi's! Over the next few weeks we ran into each other in our neighborhood a couple more times. At some point I think the subject of me being a photographer came up and I gave Delphina my website address.
Turns out Delphina and her partner Jen liked what they saw on my website and when baby Jace was born they gave me a call. I was completely booked up at the time but I cleared a day off for them because I really liked Delphina and wanted to meet this little guy. I'm so glad I did. We had a wonderful and slightly eventful shoot and I know I was meant to be the one doing this shoot for them.
Jace wins the award for BEST NEWBORN HAIR AND DIMPLES EVER. And I've been doing this a LONG time. So, that's saying something. He was just the cutest, most alert, aware, awesome little dude on the planet. I fell in love with Jace right off the bat and absolutely adored both his mommies as well. They are a wonderful trio.
The whole time I was editing these images I kept thinking the same thing over and over again, like the chorus in a song: "Ain't love grand?!" You just gotta love LOVE, you know? It's a beautiful thing.
Delphina & Jen, CONGRATS on your sweet boy's arrival into the world. I can't wait to watch him grow up in your loving care and tender embrace. ENOY the ride! :)
