Worldly Winnie

This is a story about an amazingly gifted pet photographer named Grace Chon.

A few years ago I met Grace. She turned out to live up to her name and then some. Ever since she handed me her card with a little Boston Terrier face on it, I've been stalking her and her website:

Did you go to the site yet? Do yourself a favor and check it out.

After Sadie and Quincy passed, I lost track of Grace until fate brought us together again while we were freelancing at the same company. Quincy had passed away a week before and I wasn't doing so well. In a daze I passed by one of the art director’s giant computer monitors and stopped short.

“Is that your Boston?” I squealed (I make weird noises when it comes to BTs).

“It’s Rose McGowan’s, I shot for a magazine,” the sweet art director smiled.



We hugged, and Grace got stuck listening to me talk about how much I missed my dogs. Her compassionate heart is beyond words. So loving.

Earlier this year when Peter and I adopted Winnie, I made a promise to have Grace take photos. I refused to miss out on the opportunity again. Turns out Winnie is a wonderful model. But the real kudos goes to Grace Chon and her incredible God-given gift. She captures the very essence of an animal's soul. It’s no wonder her photography graces so many magazines and homes.

She's like the dog whisperer, only better:

She will go to any length to get the shot:

The experience was wonderful.

If you have a pet you love dearly, contact Grace. She will make sure you have something to hold and cherish forever.

Also, I'd like to note that Grace does a ton of work for rescues. Her photography has saved the lives of many abandoned dogs and cats.
