Every once in a while I have a shoot where I wish I could do just a little more, be just a little better at my job and have just a little more time. This shoot with sweet Lily was one of those. At the time of the shoot, Lily was suffering from lung cancer and while she was getting around okay and enjoying treats and love and the sunshine, she was very easily tired and mostly just wanted to be in her comfy spot resting. She was so tolerant of me clicking away at her and she tried so hard to do what we wanted her to do, it was heartbreaking. She made me want to be a better photographer so I could do justice to her generous spirit and give her owners something beautiful to remember her by.
