At the end of each year, I like to honor those 4-legged family members that have crossed over rainbow bridge. I like to think their spirit lives on and they are still by our side - just in a different form - secretly giving us slobbery kisses as we sleep... Rudy - Rudy crossed the bridge just days after our session. However, her shoot was filled with laughter and smiles - the perfect way to say goodbye...

Shelby - Shelby fought a long, hard battle with cancer. Her Angel Session captured her while she still felt good and her perky ears and long tongue showed off her personality.

Scooter - Scooter's mom did each. and. every. thing. she could possibly do to keep Scooter comfortable before he said goodbye. He really didn't want to leave such a wonderful mom.

Pepper - I've photographed Pepper a couple times - the last being at the beach. I hope she is now chasing the seagulls leash-free.

Goodbye in 2013

Our pets come and go faster than we could ever imagine and they certainly never leave our hearts. Many hugs to all the pet parents out there that have had to say goodbye in 2013. {{{hugs}}}
