The Gilmore family is very special to me! Not only is their daughter Trinity one of my daughters best friends, but they were my VERY FIRST photography clients!! Over 8 years ago we lived next door to the Gilmores. I asked Gina if she would let me photograph her family to start building a portfolio, little did I know what this business would grow into 8 years later!
The Gilmores have not had pictures since then and they thought it was about time for some updates!! They wanted to be sure be sure they included their “furry family member” Tazer. He was such a good boy the whole session! I am always amazed how well trained all of Jim’s dogs are. Tazer roamed the farm and never wandered far, when it was time for him to show his smile, he did exactly what he was told (With the help of a squeaker toy)……Note his head tilt in some of the pictures……I am a sucker for a the dog with a “head tilt”! Tazer even shared his frothy wet tennis ball with me…HOW LUCKY AM I!? The sweetest moment was when Trinity turned to me at the very end and asked “can I please get a picture with me and Tazer together”…….A child’s love for her pet brings tears to my eyes. Our pets are so precious to us and I don’t think we include them in pictures enough! They are only in our lives for a short time, we need to love them hard while we have them! Trinity inspired me to take more pics of my pups and my kids this fall (I have yet to tell my kids….but it WILL happen!!)
I absolutely adore this family and their sweet respectful children! I think they are pretty darn photogenic too! I hope you enjoy this preview guys! More to come!
