At just 7 years of age, Bear’s people received devastating news that he has bone cancer. So we met up at Lamberts Beach to celebrate his birthday with a cake smash and capture some lasting memories. He was still quite mobile, but a mix of his normal laziness and in-built labrador love of food led to him smashing his Barking Mad Treats cake while lying comfortably in the sand.
This session was all about capturing Bear and the love he has for his people, and they for him. All those little details and quirky facial expressions.
The heartbreaking part of owning a pet is that they are never with us as long as we want them to be. All we can do is ensure we give them the life they absolutely deserve, relish in the moments we do have with them, and when they are gone, remember them with fondness and how they made our lives better.
Please note that Lamberts Beach is not an off-leash dog area. Bear was on leash for the duration of his session, and leashes were removed during post-production.
