I don't consider myself a pet photographer at all. The most experience I've had with it is during engagement sessions if a couple happens to bring their pet along. That has always been a fun experience but I am usually just focused on the couple and kind of let the dog do what it wants.
Amy actually contacted me about doing family photos during Thanksgiving. She also asked if I did pet photography because her Great Dane, Grace has aggressive bone cancer and she really wanted some photos of her before she passed. How could I say no to that?
Grace is 10 years old and as Amy told me, has had a good run. She is such a sweetheart and though very large is as gentle as you can imagine. Oh, she likes chicken too.
