Rigby’s Shine Session- Northern Virginia Pet Photographer

I was so honored to be chosen to photograph Rigby during his final stages of Lymphoma.  He fought a good fight, but sadly he succumbed to the disease just days after our shoot.  It was so important to his family to capture him with them before he passed.  Rigby was very energetic on the day of our shoot, excited and food driven!  We even caught him snooping in our goodie bag..

I had a wonderful assistant, Michelle Henry, a good friend and wonderful Veterinarian Technician.  She did a great job keeping tabs on Rigby and how he was holding up during the session.  He did amazingly well!  Here are just a few of my faves from the day..
