Photo shoot.

The day I found out about Melvin, I reached out to the wonderful and oh so talented Kate of Kate Juliet Photography (Kate With a Camera) and asked if she had time to come snap some shots of Melvin and me (and Jake).  I have a million photos of Melvin, but with time running out, it didn’t feel like near enough.

She was at my house four days later.  Best, of all the best of all the people. My Grandmother was here and my sister-in-law came over with my niece.  There was no sadness, just so much love.

Here is a sneak peek. I am holding most photos back for now, keeping them only for myself for a little bit.  Ones that I have already had made into canvases and hung.  What a wonderful thing photographs are, I can look at these and remember that sunny day, with a bouncy toddler and two wiggly dogs. An afternoon where loved reigned supreme. Well, love and giggles and wags.

If you are in the Northern VA/DC metro area and need a photographer for your any-legged kids, call Kate.  She may very well the calmest person you will ever meet, toddlers and dogs running all about, she somehow captures the beautiful dance.

  1. Oh my, what beautiful photos you can see the love in all these pictures. You my lady are an amazing women and God Bless You for all you have done for oh Melvin and yo Jake. He will forever love you and watch over you. Sending my love, thoughts and prayers

  2. I have a big ‘ole lump in my throat after seeing those. They are so beautiful, candid, and you can just feel the love. Not everyone feels that “deep, down-to-your-bones, in every cell of your being LOVE” that you so obviously have for Melvin & Jake. My babies are my entire world and own my heart and soul, so I just feel for you. What special memories you will have forever in these pictures

  3. Thank you so much for this. As much as I hold and pet Kodi’s paws, this reminds me that I need to photograph them. And his ears and his waging tongue, and his nose and his tail, and, and, and…….
    Thank you.

  4. Beautiful photos and a great idea. I’m looking forward to seeing the other images one day if you decide to share them. 🙂
