Jennifer Johnson was the winner of a complementary session I donated to the YANA gala fundraiser this year. If you haven't heard of YANA, it is a great organization that provides families with financial support when a child is receiving medical treatment over in Vancouver.
Originally this was going to be a family session, but the Johnson's are moving to Ontario very soon and unfortunately Jennifer's husband has to go for work earlier than expected. So, it became a sisters and dogs session instead!
We went to my favourite location, Kye Bay. For April, we have been having some pretty amazing weather. There were people suntanning and playing in the water while we were there.
The two dogs, Buddy and Max, were happy to be at the beach but I think they had other things in mind than posing for pictures! They were quite happy walking up and down the beach with the girls.
At the end of the session it was time to play! Buddy looked like a puppy as he splashed in the water. Sadly, Jennifer informed me this week that Buddy passed away from cancer shortly after our session. He will be missed terribly by the family and will remain forever in their hearts. Jennifer said that the timing was just right for their session, and that now they will have some great portraits to remember Buddy and the time they spent in the Comox Valley. All the best to you in Ottawa, Johnson family!
