Sometimes you need a nudge to know its time for a mew family portrait. I just hate when that nudge is bad news. For the Mcalarney family, it was learning from the vet that doggie Hoya only has a few months left due to cancer. I hate that they will be losing their beloved fur baby, but I am also so grateful they gave me the opportunity to photograph him and their little family while there is still time. I know years from now, they will be able to look back and smile with memories of their sweet dog.
