Kona | Loch Raven Dog Portraits

Posted on Dec 12, 2014 in Lifestyle, Nature, Portraits | 2 Comments

I am so excited to share this fun family session at the Loch Raven Reservoir with Kona and her family!

While I usually work with the two-legged variety of clients, I couldn’t wait to meet, and work with, Kona. I’ve known Kona’s family for a while now, having photographed her Mom and Dad’s engagement and wedding (along with her Aunt & Uncle’s wedding, too!) and I also had the pleasure of photographing her big brother, Melvin, TWICE! This time, though, it was Kona’s turn- and goodness did she deserve some time in the spotlight.

Kona was diagnosed with Cancer earlier this year and her Mom and Dad have been making sure that Kona has received the best possible care since her diagnosis. And, I am pleased to hear that Kona is now in remission and only has one more treatment left. Kona is cancer free! Now that is a gift for the holidays!

On a personal note, I know that I wish I had made it a priority to have family images taken with our dogs. They have since passed, and I can’t tell you how much I wish I had some images of us all together, rather than just a few snapshots of them playing in the yard or laying on the couch. I am so glad that Kona’s family has made this a priority!

And so, I bring to you, Kona- the super dog- along with her amazing family…
