"They are our family and we want to remember our time with them. We'd like you to capture their personality before is too late".
These were some of the requests I received from Oscar and Ajax's parents. They are both pure breed Rhodesian Ridgeback. Oscar is 3 years old, and Ajax is 11 and he had suffered from cancer. They wanted to celebrate their life shared with their pets now that Ajax still had some energy left.
They booked me for a 2h Lifestyle Dog Photo Session to ensure we had the time to capture their personalities and not to rush things.
During the consultation, they told me that Oscar loves to play soccer, that his tongue is the longest tongue they've ever seen and that he is a jumper. When I asked about their senior dog Ajax, they were clear they wanted me to capture his quiet personality. He likes to observe things passing, laying around and cuddle.
So with all these things in mind and with my camera gear, this was the end result.
And here a selection of my favorite photos from the session.
