I have to admit, when Paige and Josh called us to do a photo session with them and their dog Robotron, I wasn’t too happy about it.
I know, that’s weird right!? Usually I (Breanna) start off a post by saying something like “When Paige and Josh called us to do a photo session with them, I was so excited that I actually squealed out loud and had to run to the bathroom because I was going to pee my pants!”.
Well you have to understand, this session was not a normal session. The reason Paige and Josh wanted to have the session is because they’ve recently received some bad news about Robotron’s health so they wanted to capture these last moments with their family all together while they could.
Now you know why I wasn’t super excited to get this call from them. It was different than the normal celebratory photo sessions we typically do to commemorate important times in people’s lives.
Actually, maybe this session wasn’t different at all! We were in fact commemorating their lives and time together, which is a very celebratory thing!
Robotron was still feeling great so we were able to get some great shots of him and Paige playing together as they’ve been doing since he was a puppy…
… as well as some photos and of the whole family cuddling as they’ve so often done together since Josh entered into their duo and made them a fully unstoppable team.
So really, we’re celebrating…. we’re celebrating all the time these 3 have gotten to spend together.
And we’re celebrating Robotron’s awesomeness. Because not only is his name freaking cool, but he is as well.
He was definitely one of the easiest dogs we’ve ever shot. He gave us some cute and playful moments to work with, as well as some posed times where he patiently sat still while we found just the perfect angle after we’d placed him in just the right lighting.
Believe it or not, most dogs don’t really value the significance of what we’re trying to do or respect the fact that we’re working really hard to make them look their best! But Robotron seemed to sense our desperation to get the money shots, so he kindly obliged and bowed to our whims. Thanks dude.
We truly felt honored to get to be involved in such a special moment in Paige, Josh, and Robotron’s lives. This is a beautiful family and we’re so happy we were able to capture them just as they are now. Thanks Robotron, I hope you know that you’re loved and you’ll be missed. You’re one of the great ones. Good boy.
