Saying Goodbye

A phone call like this is never easy.  A dear friend asking for a few moments to be captured because they know these moments will be gone soon.

A session like this is never easy.  Seeing the pain and fear of loss of a beloved family member.

This truly amazing family lost their precious Clay.  A long time four-legged member of their family.  I was so nervous about this session because I did not want to let this family down... for they are too special to me.  I did not want a depressing light to be cast on this.  I wanted to capture Clay's life and all of the love surrounding him, and the love for their newest fur-family member, Winchester.

Thank you for the honor of wanting me to be there for this very emotional time.  You are all a blessing to me.
