A few weeks ago, Carlye, a former portrait client contacted me in the hopes that I would photograph her dog, Daisy, who was recently diagnosed with cancer. I had previously photographed her four children when they were babies. Her twins which are her youngest are now juniors in high school. Seeing them made me feel old.
She lives in Los Angles and was calling me on the off-chance that I was going to be traveling there from my home base of Minneapolis. It had been about 4 years since I have been back to LA, but coincidentally I was going to be there in a few weeks. I felt like it was meant to be.
Normally, I don't have any desire to photograph animals, but in this case I made an exception and I am so glad I did. Carlye really values the photos we had done of her children and I know she will feel the same about the photo of Daisy.
