End of Life & Memorial Pet Photography

With great care and honor, we offer end-of-life pet portraits for those who want to celebrate their beloved pets. We understand firsthand that losing a pet can be more painful even than losing a human, and we're here to help you create a beautiful and lasting tribute to your best friend before they cross the Rainbow Bridge. Haute Dog Pet Photography was born from the need to make my heart dog live forever, and his memory inspires me to create a meaningful photo session that creates a legacy and celebrates the life and love that you shared with your pet. Contact us for priority scheduling.

Vicky: A Memorial Pet Portrait Session

Linda contacted me late last year to schedule a pet photography session for her three Schnauzers. Sadly, Vicky passed away unexpectedly before we were able to meet her. We took a few months to let Linda grieve, then met to photograph Emmi and Lola. It was important to us that Vicky was still a part of the session, so I asked Linda to bring her collar and a special photo. As the sun began to set, Vicky made it known she was there in spirit visiting from the Rainbow Bridge, casting rainbow orbs across the portrait of her family standing by our vintage truck.

Remi: End of Life Dog Bucket List Photo Session

We proudly partner with Live Like Roo to offer end of life portraits to pets facing a cancer diagnosis. Remi the pit bull was the recipient of a Live Like Roo bucket list photo session. Professional photo editing isn’t just about removing leashes, sometimes it’s about remembering your pet’s best self, the way you want them to stay in your heart. Remi was battling intranasal cancer, probably not dissimilar to the one that took our Mastiff's eyes, and eventually her from us. It was important to Remi’s parents that his face looked as perfect as they knew it, and I felt that in my core not having been able to look Kimber in the eyes when we said goodbye. We edited Remi’s portrait to the best version of himself…the one that will grace his mom and dad’s wall in his memory.

If your pet has shaved fur or visible wounds, we will discuss posing and editing options to ensure their photos look exactly how you want them remembered.

Midas: An End of Life Horse Portrait Session

When Midas no longer had quality of life, Jackie made the difficult decision to lead her horse to the Rainbow Bridge. The morning of his euthanasia we paused to celebrate their bond with a brief end of life photography session. While maintaining the sanctitude of their last moments together, we created a series of farewell portraits so that a piece of him would live forever.

Roxy and Riddle: A Memorial Pet Portrait Session

We began photographing Roxy, Riddle, and Roux in 2020. When their pack grew in 2021, we celebrated the addition of Raider with a second pet photography session. Sadly Riddle passed away in 2022. His mom had one of the portraits created in her first session turned into a tattoo in his memory. In 2023 she requested a pet photography session with her special girl and wanted to incorporate Riddle's legacy. We took these portraits to remember he is always with his mom, and when the time comes, Roxy's portrait will be commissioned as a complementary tattoo on her mom's arm.

Whether you seek to commemorate your dog or horse in their last hours before they cross the Rainbow Bridge, celebrate their life as they grow old, or create portraits in memory of pets lost, we are honored to be a part of your grieving process.
