When I photograph the interaction between a family and their pet it is special. The camera lens will only capture the truth. There is nothing contrived about the photo shoot. It’s emotional to the core because a family pet only shows the photographer what is real and true: the unconditional love and bond they have for their owners.
Meet Tibbles who was rescued by Natalie and her family two years ago from Last Hope K9 Rescue (LHK9). These pictures show how Tibbles has adapted to his family and his new life. Tibbles is blind and can only see partially from one eye. That does not stop Tibbles and once he gets to know you and he’s comfortable around you, get ready to be slathered with kisses. I was lucky enough to get a big smooch from Tibbles at the end of our photo shoot. Tibbles did exceptionally well and he was a complete natural in front of the camera.
Here is additional information about LHK9 Rescue League and a link to their website:
“LHK9 Rescue is an all-breed rescue who saves abandoned, neglected, and abused dogs from high-kill shelters through out the United States. Located in Massachusetts they adopt out to bordering states. LHK9 does not have a physical shelter, the rescued dogs are placed in supportive foster homes where they are nurtured, trained, and loved by exceptional foster volunteers. Even after the adoption process, they remain active in your life by connecting families through a Facebook group which offers up support from other “fur-parents” and training specialists.”
