April 2017 – Puppy love…

Where do I start with this post, well I met Kath at a baby shower.  She was interested in photography and was taking some photos at the baby shower for her friend.  I got her details as I was looking for someone to assist me at weddings, its now been almost 3 years and now I cant seem to get rid of her, lol.  Besides being the best side kick ever at weddings, I mean I don’t know what I would do without her, but she has also become a really good friend of mine.  We have the same sense of humour and also love eating anything sweet, which is why we are dangerous around wedding cakes!  Kath and her husband Greg have two dogs, Naiyo (meaning-butter) the Lab and Toshi (meaning – toast) the Bassett.  Naiyo was diagnosed with cancer last year and he spent a few months having chemo but it didn’t help.  The Vet told them he only had a few months to live and they had to make a very big decision.  Kath wanted to get some precious memories of her dog so she asked if I would do it for her.  Her brother also joined in the photos as Naiyo was also very special to him.  Some people who don’t have animals might not understand why its so hard when you lose an animal but they become a part of your life, a part of your family.  Unfortunately Naiyo had to get to put to sleep not too long after this shoot and I am really sorry of your loss Kath & Greg.  I know how much these two doggies mean to you and I am glad you asked me to capture some of these memories for you.
