Missy + Sampson

Some people you meet in this lifetime are just instant connections and good vibes. That was Missy.

I met Missy through mutual friends and bam just like that we clicked and then she realized what I do for a living and was SO excited to do a shoot with her sweet pup. Sampson is 16 years old. Yes you read that right. 16 and still a pretty fast fur baby. He doesn't let blindness or old age slow him down and once we hit the beach for this session he was pretty much like "See ya guys, I'm heading for the water". It seriously warmed my heart shooting this session for Missy and sweet Sampson. Missy got Sampson when she was 20 and he has been through everything with her. My own little fur baby is going to be 13 this year and it just reminded me that I have had Milo since I was 20 and what we have been through together. I cherish him so much.

Our pets are our first children usually and they are with us such a huge chunk of our lives. They are the best.

I am so grateful Missy decided to choose me to document this for her and that she can have these pictures forever. 

I absolutely fell in love with Sampson and his mama is gorgeous inside and out!
