Several months ago I did my first Peaceful Heart Session with Allison and her schnauzer Max. I had long been considering doing discounted sessions for terminally ill pets. It’s a unique, extremely personal service that full-fills many pet parent’s desire to capture their pet’s essence. These are my favorite sessions because you bear witness to the intimate bond between human and animal. And on top of that, you’re privileged with the opportunity to capture and immortalize that connection. There is nothing more profound.
I was contacted by Allison’s daughter, who gifted her mother this special gift. Max had been diagnosed with cancer and she wanted her mom to have some true art of Max. Thankfully the day before our shoot he visited the vet and received some medicines that gave him some pep to his step. He was active and bouncing around for our shoot! His mom was so relieved. Max underwent treatment for his ailment over the past few months and sadly this week he passed away. He had a wonderful life and often traveled with his mom to work to hangout! He has many brothers and sisters that will miss him too. It was a true pleasure to meet you Max and I’m so glad I was able to capture you. Your likeness adorns your mom’s house and she will always smile upon your sweet face!
