  26. All I can say is, if I lived within 500 miles of the Bay Area I’d be on Josh’s doorstep right this minute, beggggging him to take pictures of my baby girl. Josh, a lot of photographers have the technical skill to take great pictures but you also have the passion and the gentle heart to work with animals. I’m so happy for you!! I love to see good things happen to good people.
