This was such a beautiful end-of-life pet portrait session. Faith looked great and after ten straight days of rain in the Dallas - Fort Worth metroplex, we were blessed with sunshine on the morning of her session at the Grapevine Botanical Gardens in Grapevine, Texas. The tulips were in bloom and everything looked fantastic, including Faith and her human, Rachel.
Rachel knew her time with Faith was limited and wanted beautiful photographs of her cherished pup to keep her memory close. Scheduling the session soon after receiving the diagnosis was key in creating gorgeous images of Faith. We don't want to remember our pets as sickly, or not looking themselves, so timing is important. If you know the time you have left with your dog or cat is limited, don't delay. I prioritize Silver Sessions in my calendar and will make every effort to accommodate even the shortest of timelines.
Something for the Wall
Unable to select just one favorite image for the wall, Rachel chose a 12"x12" story print with four of her favorite images to hang in her home. Story prints are printed on 100% cotton fine art paper and are finished with museum quality, acid-free archival mountings to ensure against fade and yellowing and are completed with a classic black gallery frame. She also ordered an image block for her desk and a 20-page album with all her favorite images from the session.
Less than two weeks after her session, Rachel informed me that Faith had crossed the rainbow bridge and expressed relief that she didn't delay and knowing that she would always have these portraits.
