I have joined a monthly Lensbaby challenge with some very talented women! My personal objective to get out and use these lenses more, but with our pets. A Lensbaby is a simple lens with a ball and socket mechanism for use in special-effects photography and can give effects normally associated with view cameras. The creative possibilities for tilt and shift focus are endless! This month’s theme is ‘fresh,” so I bring you “Fresh Smell” with Jack and Julie.

Semi is a most special dog. He is 10 and while blind since he was 5, still enjoys all the wonders of life! Meeting a new friend, high-fives, sitting in his favorite place in front of the fireplace, off leash walks with Mom and sniffing for anything new in the air! I was so honored to be able to capture him in so many of his favorite activities and places. During his off-leash walks he checks in with Mom with a gentle touch of her hand. One of the last photos I took during our time together caught this simple gesture and the love between them really moved me.
As these images were a surprise present for Mila’s Dad, I did not post these images last year. But I sure loved them! Mila is all heart and goofy love, from her smile to her funny sit to always checking back in with us when off leash. Mom is a beauty too – inside and out. I love being able to capture the relationship between a beloved pet and owner – and to be able to do this in a beautiful setting is just icing on the cake!
