Another loss amongst our wonderful animal family members.¬† This morning, Belle, a beautiful girl we had the privilege to photograph last fall, passed away quietly with her family members at her side.
Belle was a very spirited geriatric when I met her.¬† Having already survived one round of lung cancer she was full of spunk the morning of our session.
We offer our sympathy to Belle’s family.

This morning I did something I rarely take time for – I went out early and shot for myself.¬† There will be no labor today. Only relaxation.
Sending special thoughts to all of our friends in the New Orleans area.
This was our second session with Brandi. We did an abbreviated session at the farm earlier this summer.
Brandi is the much loved 16 year old Yorkie of Trinh and Jason. They opened their hearts and their home to this little girl when she was already at the advanced age of 11.
She has been living with kidney failure for the last 4 years. She has grown weary and Jason and Trinh (and probably Brandi too) know her days are numbered.
Though she spent most of our session resting (or trying to get away from the dreaded camera!), she rallied at the very end for a bit of her favorite treat- McDonald’s ice cream.
To Trinh and Jason and Brandi – enjoy your final days together and know we are with you in thought and support.
We had such a great time photographing Sky and his wonderful family over the past year.¬† Please enjoy a slideshow of a year of images.¬† Sky’s family included some of their own pictures from his very early days!
