Know someone looking for a reason to have a photo session with their dog? This session will convince them.
Meet Jenna and Freddy’s pup, Koda. He is a loving husky who enjoys snacking on watermelon, chasing after the soccer ball, and eating all the treats. He was also recently diagnosed with stage 4 leukemia.
When Jenna first reached out about doing a family photo session with their dog to celebrate Koda’s life, I immediately knew that this was the kind of session I was made to do. But I was also low-key apprehensive that I would be too emotional during the shoot 😅 I’ve always been in the camp that I would rather lose a loved one in an instant, rather than know for weeks/months that they’re dying.
Our hour together was nothing but full of laughs, fun, and an amazing dog cake baked by Jenna. There were no tears. I know that hasn’t been the case for them the entire time since they got Kola’s diagnosis, but I can tell that they’ve really embraced giving Koda the opportunity to live his life to the fullest for the rest of the time he has left. I am so grateful that I was able to document their unconditional love for Koda.
There are so many reasons to include your pup in your family session — like, they will make you smile and laugh and they are part of the family after all. But also, they might not always be here. And you’ll want to remember the good times.
