Sweet Ginger’s mom called to ask about end of life pet photos for her elderly dog. Yes, I could meet them that week and photograph their girl in the City of Orange. They chose Eisenhower Park, which had plenty of beautiful spots for me to photograph their family all together.
Senior dog, Ginger, enjoyed all the snuggles from each of her girls and even posed for a photo with her younger crazy sister, Luna. They are an adorable duo, right?!
We DID photoshop a bit on that one and grabbed another image of Ginger that was better to pair with Luna. I’m all for keeping everyone comfortable and not forcing anything.
Getting one good family portrait WITH the dogs of them all together was on mom’s list. We got it!
For that hour at the park for Ginger’s end of life photos, we went at Ginger’s pace and took it easy. She was a happy girl enjoying the extra attention. Here she was, being gently set down by her sis.
Ginger’s family now has digital files and printed artwork to remember her forever! We narrowly missed that opportunity as I got the news that only a week or two after their portrait session in Orange, mom told me Ginger had deteriorated over the weekend and went to Heaven.
I hope these heartwarming images bring a smile to their faces for many, many years!
