I had the great fortune to photograph Jupiter in February. He was very sick and was scheduled to end his life the next day. My friend Jakki asked if I would be able to come to her house to take a few photographs of him alone and with Jakki and Keith. Boy, it was difficult to not cry while capturing the love between this dog and his family…I have my own dog and it made me realize how close we get to these beautiful creatures. She’s my girl! I love her so much.
While retouching these next few images I cried…. I felt the pain that Keith and Jakki felt that day. I know they miss him very much but know he is in a better place. Please celebrate life with your loved ones today…you never know when it will be the last day you share together.
