Last weekend, I met up with my friend Jenn and her dog, Jasmine.

I’ve known Jasmine for as long as I’ve known Jenn – we met my first year in college.

Jenn was a year ahead of me, but we immediately hit it off. We were inseparable…so much so, that I earned a key to her apartment so that I could take care of Jasmine once in a while.

Now Jasmine…used to run like the wind. On one occassion, I was to go to Jenn’s apartment to let Jasmine out. I didn’t think much of it and let her out to use the bathroom.

If memory serves me correctly, she saw a squirrel and took off. Luckily, I was 19 or 20 years old…and had enough energy to chase her. I learned a very important lesson that day – never take Jasmine out without a leash!

Jasmine isn’t so fast these days. Much like the rest of us, she’s gotten older. Not that any of us want to think about it, but the chances of Jasmine (or Kitty Paw for that matter) living as long as we do are very slim.

So I suggested to Jenn that we take this opportunity to photograph the two of them together. Of course I’m not a pet photographer (if you find a photographer who specializes in this area, they tend to be pure genius), but I do love to photograph families.

And much like the families I tend to photograph, Jasmine gave me a good run for my money. I’ve determined that dogs are like toddlers – they require patience, bribes and silly noises.

Either way, I had a blast. I’m so glad we could schedule this session. Here’s to many more happy years with Jazzy Jazz! I love you girls!
