Our Maggie sessions come from something that is very personal and dear to me. Maggie Rose was my five year old Sheltie that I rescued from a friend who had a stroke and could no longer care for her. I only had Maggie for a little over a year before she passed away from lymphoma. Maggie was my first pet, and she was where I found a love for animals that I never knew existed. When I lost her I was heartbroken. When I started to pursue professional photography as a full time career, she was one of my first photography subjects. She loved running around our backyard especially when she would chase after tennis balls. Losing Maggie was very hard for me. Even though we were only together for a short period, that time meant so much to me. I am so happy that I have pictures of her that I can look back on. Below is my favorite one. It captures the vibrant spirit that she had and makes me smile every time I look at it.
Saying goodbye is never an easy thing. I created the Maggie Sessions in memory of one of my best friends. For so many people, their pets mean the world to them and I want to provide an opportunity to capture that special relationship. These sessions are offered at a reduced rate and are just for terminally ill or elderly pets. We normally come to your home but studio sessions are also available.
