SESSION NOTE ~ Beamie was in foster when she came for her session. She had been living with Jasper and his humans for a few months so she had a sleddie buddy helping ease the transition to living inside a house and all the weirdness that goes along with it.
All sleddies new into foster care with the Victoria Humane Society get a GPS collar. In Bea's case, it came in handy when she went on her solo adventure.
I photographed 4 sleddies during this session (Jasper, Beamie, Mary Kate & Ashley) - and when they weren't posing for their session, they were squishing up on the 'sleddie sofa' -I know it was more of a 'security in numbers' thing, but it was pretty adorable and they seemed comfortable doing it, so we just took lots of photos.
