It's one of the tragic realities of life that our pets are never with us long enough and every one of us has had the thought, "I can't imagine my life without you." Our pets are our family. They make us laugh, sometimes cry, but always love us unconditionally and whether they are by our side or not, we will always love them forever.
I offer Silver Sessions to celebrate the older dog in our lives with their silver muzzle or face ticked with a few gray hairs. Sometimes it may be at the end of their journey here on earth or for those that have recently received an unfortunate diagnosis, but are still their happy selves. These sessions are crafted to honor and celebrate your pet and the relationship you have together. Silver Sessions aren't about pictures of dying pets; they're about capturing the little things that make them special to you; the expressions, the spots, the whiskers or their paw in your hand while they're still with you and as you want to remember them.
Each session is offered expedited scheduling to accommodate emergency situations. If you are aware of someone who is losing a beloved pet, gifting a Silver Session is a caring gesture of acknowledgement to the receiver of how special their pet is to them.
Why should you do a Silver Session?
These sessions create images that acknowledge and honor your family member and the bond you have with each other in a dignified and beautiful way; this will often help you through the grieving process to come. It's also inevitable that some details of your pet will fade from your memory over time. The images and prints that results from a Silver Session will give you touchable memories to celebrate your pet forever.
When should you schedule your pet's Silver Session?
If your pet has progressed to the point where you wouldn't want to remember them this way, then I suggest you simply focus on enjoying the time you have left with them and be grateful for the pictures you have when they were healthy and don't try to force new photographs that may be painful to look at once their gone.
A Silver Session can be in the studio, a local park or at your home; the fee is $160 which includes the pre-session consultation to collaborate on the look, feel and location of your session, scheduling of the gallery reveal, assistance with selecting your favorite images for printing and delivery of your final custom art pieces. All print products are sold separately.
