Being a dog photographer has brought me immense joy, laughter and peace. I feel so fortunate to not only do something I love, but to meet numerous dogs who all touch me in different ways. And of course, knowing you all, their caregivers. Getting phone calls to let me know that a dog has passed, is the hardest part and one I wish I could do without. I know how much my Benny means to me, and so my heart breaks to think what you all are going through during such a loss. Such a vast emptiness. Words can’t really say how much I am honored to get to know your pups while they’re here. So thank you.
Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm,
and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.
