This is a story about the Schultzes and their incredible family of seven. Frank, their sweet dog that they had rescued on the side of the road a few years back, had been on the decline, and they were hoping for a way to memorialize their family at that moment in time. Anyone who knows the Schultzes is aware that they have a soft spot for animals, always rescuing strays and finding homes for them. Frank was an exception. When they picked him up off the street, he fit right in with their family. Even with a toddler and two other dogs at the time, they knew he had to stay. Frank is the protector and the silent one. He quietly sits in the corner or by the door, constantly watching to make sure everyone is OK. He loves to be scratched, hugged, and loved. There are so many sweet moments and personalities that shine through when I get to spend more than an hour with a family and in their personal space. This particular morning they snuggled in bed, made Snoopy pancakes, cuddled with the dogs, read stories, planted herbs, and went out for cookies. Sadly, Frank passed away a few months after these images were taken. It was an incredible honor to be the one asked to preserve these memories.
