Kathy and her good old boy Dexter

Kathy is a friend of mine whose been itching to get some photographs done with her beloved old man. Dexter is a complete ham for the camera, a very good boy indeed. We spent thirty minutes doing this session at Glacial Park in Ringwood, Illinois. It has this beautiful endless scenery and we shot on an overlooking natural stone amphitheater. As far as you can see it’s wilderness and paths into the mess of it. I love getting lost in this park when I need some refresher time. Sometimes I’ll even do nature photography out that way.

Kathy had this to say:

“Fantastic work! Ez did a shoot with me and my dog and I am legitimately in tears at how wonderful the pictures are. They did such a great job of capturing my sweet boy and the love we have for each other. Highly recommend.”

I’m glad to hear I wasn’t the only one tearing up at these precious photographs. Enjoy the sappy cry everyone!

Be Kind to Yourself,
