What a fun afternoon this was! I cannot believe I never posted these.
They were taken almost a year ago. Sarah and Redline had such a great time hanging out together! Sarah always loved going outside and specifically spending time at the beach. Years ago we would plan our trip to Kiawah from North Carolina but have to wait to tell “the girls” so they didn’t think we were leaving right then. After finally moving to the area and as age caught up with Sarah, she was having difficulty staying on the beach for long. My mom and I decided to take her to the pool one day with Redline. Redline has never liked getting her furry feet wet, whether it’s a simple rain shower or on the beach. Sarah was more than happy to jump right in the pool (with supervision of course)!
These photographs remind me why I fell in love with a camera and photography. The moments that make up the best parts in life pass so quickly and it’s very easy to get lost in the noise of daily life. For me, photos have the power to revive memories, bring you back to those beautiful moments and remind us of all the smaller things that make this life so wonderful. I remember the warmth of the day, Sarah’s excitement to jump in, Redline’s hesitation of the water, Sarah’s cold wet nose and Redline making sure she was ok after getting wet.
