Jo contacted me several months back to hire me to take her college graduation photos. She had seen photos I had taken of her for the Special Olympics PolarPlunge.
The event was held in February at Lake Massapoag in Sharon. The "Plunge" raises money and awareness for Special Olympics. Participants jump into the icy water of the lake. Jo is the female in the bathing suit leading the pack.
We communicated several times about her graduation. We were to meet on the beautiful campus of Wellesley College on commencement day to get photos of her in her in her uniform. She was to receive her degree in Criminal Justice and had already landed a job.
Then I got this email from her..........
Just got myself a fur companion. I would love if you could take photos of us !"
I went away the week she got him, so we had to put off the session. By the time we were able to schedule a session, it was already the week before her graduation.
Meet Milo, the German Shepard.
Jo decided to scrap the graduation shoot and concentrate on her love, Milo. If you have a dog, you know the feeling, there is such an attachment that takes place between you and your pet.
After spending some time with them, I know the feeling is mutual between the two of them. What a great time we had.
Thanks for sharing Milo with me, Jo and congratulations on your graduation.!
After 31 years of teaching, I have decided to retire and start a new chapter of my life as a photographer. It has been my passion for about 7 years now.
