This session hit me in the feels. Peggy, who is one of my roommates from college, reached out to me asking me to photograph her and her precious pup, Meeko. She got terrible news that her pup had a couple weeks left in his life due to cancer. There was no doubt in my mind that I needed to make her proud and photograph their love during this photo shoot with her pup.
Animals are 100% family members and pull special heart strings for myself and many dog owners. I met Peggy and Meeko at one of their favorite parks. We wanted the shoot to feel as natural and as normal as possible. So they played until the sun went down and just spent some quiet and intimate moments together. I wanted to capture them as candid as possible, so I gave them some prompts, but ultimately let Meeko run the show. He really is the sweetest and my heart hurts so much for Peggy & Meeko.
I am so glad I could be a part of this time and leave her with photos with her pup that I hope she will treasure forever.
