In honor of World Pet Memorial Day, I am sharing a recent session. Sweet ‘ol Jelly Roll had a Going with Grace session with me a couple weeks ago. I felt I had to include an embarrassing photo of her jelly “rolls” in the top left of this collage so you could truly appreciate the […]

I am feeling reminiscent and a little heartbroken as sweet Delilah had her Going with Grace session last night. I’ve photographed this family for the past 8 years – before they even had human kiddos. And now they have 3 fantastic little ones. I am so thankful for their friendship and how they’ve trusted me […]

Every Going with Grace session affects me greatly but sometimes the love between parent and pup is so deep, I literally feel it in my soul. I tear up as I finish editing and find my heart longing for the images to bring you comfort in the difficult days ahead. Meet Hudson and Brooke. Here […]

I met sweet Smokey for a Going with Grace session recently. Today, he’s set to have a special last day being spoiled before he crosses the bridge. He will be together again with his late furry companion Autumn. (Her pawprints are shown in the shape of a heart in the canvas shown below) Please keep […]

Jack was so adored and the kind folks at Mariposa ensured his sweet soul was documented on camera to remember always. […]

It’s hard to imagine life without your pet. But one day, the harsh reality hits you like a brick. You’ve been trying to ignore the signs and be positive but your pet’s health has started to decline. Our own Abby is battling Cushing’s Disease along with side effects from her medication which has caused lack […]
