END OF LIFE PET PHOTOGRAPHY

REQUIEM SESSIONS

Black and White Dog with Woman During End of Life Pet Photo Session

For terminally ill or elderly pets, I offer special photography sessions dedicated to celebrating their life and love.

 

Requiem means an act or token of remembrance, and these sessions honour and celebrate the relationship between you and your pet, doing the things you love most. 

Saying goodbye to a pet is one of the hardest things to do. They provide us with so much in their lives. They are always there for us; to comfort us, to play with us, they become part of our daily routine, and in turn, become part of the family.


When we can, we give them one last amazing day - cuddles on the couch, a car ride, cheeseburgers, a new toy - before we help them have a loving and dignified end.

I wanted to create a session that would help normalize the grief we feel after losing pet and I want to be there as a support to families going through this tough time. These sessions are very dear to my heart, as I lost one of my own in July 2017.


These sessions will provide you with tangible memories of their personality, face, paws, nose, eyelashes, and most importantly, the way they look at you. The photographs will be something you can cherish, long after those details fade from your memory.

Requiem Sessions are often scheduled at short notice but scheduling them as soon as you feel your pet's time is near will ensure availability and a more enjoyable session for your pet. 


These are for and about the pets in need and their families, they are the perfect way to remember your pet, or to gift to a loved one.

In Memory Of

SHEIK (2010-2018)

Sheik was my Buddha dog and she was my fighter. She is the reason I do these sessions.


I started fostering Sheik in October 2017 and from the moment she came home I knew this was the home where she was meant to stay. She was my first 'foster fail'.

She came to me as a senior at 10 years old and with so much love to give to everyone and everything she met.


Shortly after I signed the adoption papers she was diagnosed with systemic cancer and on the way home from the vet I bought her a big burger and I made her a promise to make her happy and comfortable for the time she had left with us, however short that ended up being.


Every day with Sheik was a gift.

I took so many photos of her but I wish I had someone to capture the details and the connection between us because as much as I didn't want to admit it, sometimes things can happen fast.

July 27th, 2018 she passed away in my arms, safe and warm at the vet. It broke me but it was my last gift to her.

This experience allowed me to support others going through the same grief, and that was her last gift to me.

In Memory Of

SNOOP (2010-2018)

Snoop (Snoop Dog, Snoop-a-loop) was the best and worst garbage dog around. She was a complicated girl and a very large part of why I got into dog training. She came to me at 6 years old with her faults (behavioral and health) that sometimes made her hard to love, but she still brought so much joy into our lives with her snuggles, tippy-taps, her nose boops and her insatiable desire to eat things that normal dogs wouldn't even dream of eating.

 

Snoop fought a long battle with cancer, so when our time with her began to feel fragile I asked a friend to help me with our own Requiem session. She passed away a few months later and I'm happy to have these photos to look back on during the hard days.
