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.
