As a photographer, I have been fortunate to witness the power of imagery and its ability to freeze time, preserving memories that we hold dear. However, like all human beings, I, too, have experienced regret, particularly in not having the opportunity to capture photos of my rottweiler, Athena, before she crossed over the rainbow bridge. This personal regret has led me to become an affiliate photographer with the Tilly Project, a non-profit organization offering end-of-life sessions for pets. Through my involvement with this heartwarming initiative, I have found a way to give back while honoring the memory of my sweet and deeply missed Athena.
The Tilly Project: Preserving Lasting Memories
The Tilly Project provides end-of-life photography sessions for pets, capturing precious moments to help owners hold onto cherished memories forever. Saying goodbye to our pets is an immensely painful and heartbreaking experience. The Tilly Project recognizes the importance of capturing those final moments together, providing comfort and peace during this time. Affiliate Photographers are based all over; some offer free sessions, while others offer low-cost options. Each photographer decides to choose what is best for them and their business.
The Impact of End-of-Life Sessions
End-of-life sessions are profoundly personal and allow pet owners to express love, gratitude, and farewells. Through my lens, I aim to capture the unconditional love, shared memories, and unbreakable bond between pets and their owners. These photographs serve as cherished keepsakes, reminding owners of the joy their companions brought into their lives.
The Tilly Project exemplifies the healing power of capturing moments, providing solace during challenging times. Let us embrace the gift of end-of-life sessions, ensuring no cherished moments go unrecorded or unappreciated.
I currently offer End- of-Life Sessions in Eastern North Carolina: Wilmington, Jacksonville, New Bern, Sneads Ferry, Hampstead, Topsail, Emerald Isle, and Wrightsville Beach. I offer a select amount of complimentary photos with the option to purchase additional photos or the full gallery.
