Rock the Shot’s September Photo Challenge

I recently stumbled upon the fabulous photography forum… and just in time to catch this month’s photo challenge of “pets”! 

Without a doubt, my most favorite “pet picture” to date would be this shot of my oldest with our dog, Ace.  I revisit this shot so often & even have it framed in our home… often finding myself stopping to stare at it as I pass by. 

Of course this picture, shot a little over a year ago on one of those perfect early September evenings, became even more special to our family after we lost Ace this past June.  We still miss him dearly and, in all honesty, still can’t believe he is gone & no longer with us.  He was such an important part of our lives… and there from day one of my oldest son’s life.  Having this picture of them together is so special to me… I am so thankful that I took the time to take both boys out for a quick session last Fall to capture these sweet moments.  I had no idea that our time with Ace would be ending that quickly…

Hope you’ll enjoy my little visit down memory lane… and be sure to check out Rock the Shot’s photography forum at!
