‘Joy Sessions’ by photographer Sarah Beth captures the final moments between elderly or ill pets and their loving owners.
As many of us are aware, pets act as our playmates, companions, pals and confidantes throughout life. Armed with their comforting cuddles and unconditional love, it seems like we can tackle any hurdle. When it comes time to say goodbye to our cherished comrades, many owners would appreciate a memento or keepsake, which is where Sarah Beth comes in.
Sarah Beth explains the process, saying: "I enjoy capturing closeness, physical interactions between the owners and the animals… It’s wonderful when the pets are still looking and feeling good, but I’ve had quite a few where we can’t do anything more than lay on the bed, so we get what we can, and try to give the owners the best possible memories of the shoot.”
