I will fight anyone who dares to say dogs are not part of the family. I mean, really, come at me.
But on a serious note, I’ve done several sessions recently for families who fur babies aren’t doing so well and every single session is a reminder to go hug my boys. When I went to Jazz’s home, it was pretty easy to see she wasn’t doing so well. But I could tell she was trying to be strong for her Mom & Dad. She was in the final stages of kidney failure and she fought hard.
I met Jazz’s mom at our local creatives group meet up. I’ve always liked Jessica. She has the sweetest, soothing voice and her presence is calming. She is one talented photographer and appreciates a good bagel (we need a Greenfield’s date soon lady!). And after helping her husband through his kidney transplants (yes, plural, and in two separate transplants) to have their sweet girl fall victim to the same terrible condition is unfathomable. This session was tough but I am so thankful Jessica invited me into their home and shared Jazz with me.
As you can see from the photos, this session was from the winter time. I waited a few months because I can only imagine the heartache these two went through, but also because a few months ago they got a new pup named Chance and I really think Jazz would approve. <3
