It’s been a rollercoaster for Hannah Stonehouse Hudson the last two years. 

In the summer of 2012, Stonehouse Hudson snapped a photo of a dog named Schoep swimming with owner John Unger in Lake Superior.  I don’t have hard statistical data to support my next statement, but I feel confident proclaiming it to be one of the most virally popular images of the Facebook era.  In turn, it put Hannah’s Stonehouse Photography business on the national stage. 

Joy turned to grief a few short months later when Hannah’s husband, Jim Hudson, tragically drowned in Lake Superior.  Jim was a professional fishing guide and a pretty famous one at that.  I’d never had the pleasure of meeting Jim in person, but I was grateful to have interviewed him on FAN Outdoors radio on KFAN just days before the accident.  I’ve also never had the pleasure of meeting Hannah in person, but I’ve admired from afar (Twitter, Facebook, interviews, etc.) the grace in which she’s handled the ups and downs of life these last two years. 

I’m excited to report Hannah will join Billy Hildebrand and me on FAN Outdoors this Saturday morning at 6:30AM.  We’ll talk about Schoep, Jim, fishing, dogs and her exploding pet photography business.  She’ll also teach us her five steps to taking better pet photos ourselves.  Hope you’ll tune in to what should be a fun and inspiring show.
