If you’ve ever loved a dog, you know how strong the love between a dog and a person can be. At times it is overwhelming to think of my dogs dying, even though it probable that I’ll outlive them. These photos from Paw Prints- Pet Portraits by Charlene are so touching, don’t be surprised if you find yourself shedding a few tears.
From Charlene: “I was contacted by Carolyn to photograph her senior dog, Smidgen (girl) and her younger dog, Chumley (boy), as a Devoted Hearts session for Smidgen. Carolyn’s love for Smidgen is palpable when looking at these images, and the emotion is both heart-wrenching and beautiful.”
I don’t know if Smidgen’s devoted hearts session was booked because she is a senior dog, or if she had a bad diagnosis. I’ m hopeful that she’s still keeping Chumley in line and their mom company! If not, I know these photos are a wonderful keepsake of a life well loved.
If you haven’t booked a professional photography session with your senior dog, I urge you to find a photographer and book a session. Joy Sessions is a wonderful resource to help you locate a professional photographer.
