"Old dogs, like old shoes, are comfortable. They might be a bit out of shape and a little worn around the edges, but they fit well."
-- Bonnie Wilcox 'Old Dogs, Old Friends'
If you are facing the loss of a pet due to age or illness, a Cherish Session is a wonderful option to celebrate your special bond and create images of your pet you will cherish once they are gone. These photo sessions are offered specifically for pets that are nearing the end of their lives.
Cherish Session usually take place in your home, where your pet feels safe and comfortable. Each of these sessions is unique, just as each pet and owner relationship is unique. If illness has already taken hold and your pet is fragile, it will be a quiet, gentle time with lots of holding and petting. If a serious diagnosis has been received but your pet is still feeling good, we can make the session a joyful event for your pet, with special treats and perhaps a trip to their favorite play area to capture them at their best. These sessions are priority--I will drop everything and make time for you, even the same day or evening if your pet's condition is deteriorating quickly. If you are interested in a Cherish Session contact me to discuss details and availability.
