Tux was my favorite cat ever. She was this gorgeous little tuxedo cat we picked up as a kitten in the parking lot of our local grocery store. She was covered in fleas and underweight and clearly not in good health. We nursed her back to health and gave her the best life possible. She was the most unique cat I've ever owned. She loved water and jumped into the bath every time we filled it. She wanted to drink from sinks. We had to make sure she didn't climb into the washing machine. She loved our bird - as a friend. She always knew if one of us was having a down day and would climb up on our laps to help us recover. She didn't have the agility that most cats have, making her a bit clumsy. She loved boxes and lived in her favorite Vans shoe box. Tux died suddenly from congestive heart failure at only six years old. One minute she was fine; the next minute she was gone from our lives and our hearts. I'm so grateful to have so many photographs of our beloved Tux. They are the best investment I've made and will forever take photos of animals in her honor.
Why Photograph the Last Stage?
Some people think it's weird, but not me. I believe there is nothing more beautiful than the story of life. A few people have asked why I would want to photograph a horse or pet in its last stage of life. My answer always revolves around love. Losing a pet is one of the most gut-wrenching experiences we face as humans. We are so attached to our animals that when they pass on, it's really like losing a member of the family. To have beautiful photographs taken of your pet is like stopping time. Photos become cherished memories of that special place in your heart where your beloved pet will remain forever. My goal is to document your love, your bond, and the unique personality of your pet or horse. Don't wait until it's too late. I will do my best to rearrange my schedule to make sure we have time for your aging or ailing pet or horse. It would be my honor to photograph your Tux's Rainbow pet. Please contact me to discuss your pet or horse and the session details.
