Sometimes photography can be used to honor life in it's most basic of circumstances. Sometimes you get to be the photographer that bears witness to the most sacred, beautiful and emotional moments in someones life. It's an unearned intimacy--- this brief relationship with those I work for ----that I will never take for granted.
The yellow pup below is Rocket. She was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer at Christmas. She's enjoying her last days with her wonderful, soon to be growing, family. It's such an honor to be present at occasions like this.
Cheers to a life, gracefully lived, on four paws!
