Savor: (v) to give oneself to the enjoyment of.

So, in the sneak peek for this shoot I mentioned that the dog wasn't mine, nor was the boy. But when I began to go over all the photos from this post, I realized I was a little wrong on that account. Because there's a certain feeling I get when I go through photos of my children. It's a an overwhelming sense of love, mixed with a tinge of nostalgia and sentiment. Sometimes the feeling can create a little lump of love in my throat. So when I went through these photos, and began feeling those same emotions, I realized I was wrong. These may be my sister's sons, but this I know for sure: they are my boys.

Wade Christian, Landon Joseph, and Anderson Kenneth, you make me smile. You were such good little stinkers during this shoot, and I love ya' to bits.

This little puppy's name is Annie. And she is quite taken by her little owners. They are participating in the Fidelco fostering program, training Annie to be a guide dog. And giving her some love in the process.

I know where the term "puppy dog eyes" comes from... Who can resist?

These next 3 make me laugh:

Colleen wanted to take some photos for their family to remember the time they had with Annie. I'm so glad the boys will be able to look back on their little pup someday and smile.

Just one more, because I love Landon's expression in this shot:

And I couldn't agree more with this quote:

'Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.'

-Marc Riboud, famous French photographer
