I tend to hide things pretty well, but honestly after the photo shoot with Christy Arias and Furever USA this morning I couldn't. Going over the photos she took with her husband and Mitchel tears started to come down my face. When I lost Copper almost 2 years ago, he was the last remaining part of a chapter in my life. Copper kept me going when I wanted to give up. Losing him I felt I lost that light. Then Apollo showed up, in all his beastly happiness. He walked through my front door as if he already lived there. Mitchel and I were still fresh in our relationship and I will never forget when he came over and this big black, wiggly dog came running up to him. You could feel the cracks starting to mend, and the light returning. We became more and more a family. While Christy was taking photos and having fun I was just taking it all in, watching like I always do. She was truly capturing how my family has become whole. Something I didn't think could happen, but there it was the broken pieces finally mended. Christy and Furever we can't and I can't Thank You enough. You greeted us with the warmest of welcomes. Listening and learning about Apollo's story. This is experience is something we will not forget. Even while reviewing all the photos, her husband was so funny and sweet. Helping us in this experience, the viewing room again welcoming and comfortable. Furever is on a mission to help change the stigma of rescues, that they are all not broken and beyond repair. Well we can say this, our rescue, our happy wiggly lab mended us and brought a new blended family together. For that we will forever be grateful.
We began this experience to give back to the rescue community and support our favorite local rescue organization, we ended this experience with with the perfect picture display for our home featuring the little ones who run it! The staff was so welcoming and patient- our dogs felt safe and comfortable, which is very evident in all of the pictures. They scheduled two different slide shows to accommodate our schedules so we could be sure to have enough time to puck our favorite photos- which was not an easy task as every single picture showed so much love and each of our dogs individual characters. This is an experience I would recommend over and over again. Thank you Furever Reno!
Jasen and Christy are AH-MAY-ZING. and of course Erin too! let me just tell y'all... I was not expecting the experience I got... AT ALL.. I have never ever been a more teary mess about a photo slideshow in my life, like full on tears streaming down my face with my eyeliner going with it. My Pugsy is 10 years old, and the absolute love of my life... hes been with me through everything in the last 4 years I have had him and I wouldnt trade a single moment for anything... and that's exactly what Christy caught in our session... she captured the emotion, my boys unique personality, the connection between me and my best friend and everything in between. Thank You for creating such a special experience, Thank You Jasen for dealing with my madness as I tried to narrow down my photos (hard feat... they were all PERFECT)... Just Thank You for the special memories you captured of my boy and I... Pugsy and I are Furever Grateful ❤
This was a beautiful experience from start to finish...... from working with local photographer to sharing our rescue dog stories..... it was amazing! The staff were super friendly, patient, and helpful gathering our info about the fur babies. The finished artwork is amazing and gives me joy at work and home as well! Definitely recommend to all my “dog people.”
