This is why the consultation is so important: Our senior here really wanted to have her rats in a few of the shots we captured. Her mother had dismissed the idea completely out of hand, assuming that I would not want to deal with that. I am absolutely up for something as ridiculous as including rodents in a senior portrait session. I am so glad they brought it up, because just look at the joy those furry friends brought to the table. We were also able to capture a few with her younger sister, and an unexpected bee or two . . . but the rats were the greatest need for this senior. I'm glad I could accommodate.
