Occasionally I will get a request for photo restoration or retouching work and while it’s not an area that I specialize in, it is something that I really enjoy doing. Today I thought I would share a special project that I recently completed – this is Buddy, a very special dog who recently passed away from cancer. Buddy’s mom had a few pictures that she loved, but thought that they could use a little work. She wanted to use the image below for her Christmas Cards this year, and I’m really pleased with how it turned out. I’ll admit that doing this kind of work can sometimes be bittersweet – my heart always goes out to those who lose a special companion, but I also understand how important photographs are in keeping the memories of our loved ones alive. I’m so happy that I could give Buddy’s mom a smile, even if it was through tears.
