One of my goals at Vivid Moments this year is to feature a lot more portrait sessions. As much as I love weddings, portraiture has and will always be dear to my heart. With that said, I introduce to you Sahar and her super adorable dog Nelly. Sahar is a friend I’ve gotten to know over the past year and who happens to be one of two main faces behind Modern Mint Events, a rising star wedding event company.
For our photo shoot, we took a stroll around Granville Island where we were greeted by the warm sun, a blessing not too often seen on a winter January day in Vancouver. Nelly quickly became the center of attention as soon as the camera started clicking, and she would continue to hog the spotlight until near the end where Sahar and I got some one on one time.
I never owned a pet before, nor am I allowed to where I live. Though if I had the choice, it would definitely be a dog. The way I saw Sahar and Nelly interact was almost like watching a mother playing with her child. Kind of funny considering that as recent as 2012, I was still scared of dogs due to being chased by a few of them as a kid. What changed for me was back in early 2013 when I held my friend’s puppy in my arms, whereupon she smiled those adorable puppy dog eyes back into mine. I’m happy to saw that I’ve learned to love dogs ever since 🙂
