Pets and their Humans

I’ve come to love and appreciate the dynamic of pet ownership. In my family we have a beautiful little Balinese cat named Lucy. She is curious, mischievous, and loves to be around people. I love that she’s not a super vocal cat for the most part. My kids love her far more than she sometimes can tolerate, but for a cat, I think she is incredibly patient with them. There is a dynamic she’s brought to our family that I’ve come to appreciate very much. Lucy has brought joy to our lives in unexpected ways, and has become part of our family. We are planning on adding a dog once conditions are right and necessary arrangements have been made, and we are really excited! 

I was touched this past year through the experience of photographing a particular “last” family session with their ill golden retriever. Hearing the history of how this sweet darling had been around before the kids had “arrived”, gave me perspective. How important it is to capture these fleeting relationships in life! Our companions give so much comfort and friendship and their lives seem to come and go so quickly. This sparked a desire in me to incorporate pets (or companions)!  I’m super excited about a new session now available to clients who have the specific need of pet portraiture. I chose to call these sessions “Pets and their Humans” because I wanted to put the companion(s) in the forefront or center of focus, a celebration of their life combined with their human(s)!

My vision is to capture connection, personalities, and spirit. My goal is to give those scheduling a session imagery to remind them of what they had once their companion is gone.  

These sessions ought to be held on location where you and your companion feel safe, and comfortable. Preferably it’s a familiar environment you enjoy being in together. Each session will be customized!
