Every now and then I'm approached with someone wanting photographs of a subject that I don't or wouldn't typically provide. I hesitate to take these jobs, or at least accept money for them considering my experience in that subject is limited.
I was approached with one such request from a friend of mine. Sadly, he and his fiancé just had say goodbye to one of their two ferrets a few weeks ago after he struggled with significant health issues.
Not long after their first ferret had to be put down, their 2nd ferret began struggling with similar health issues. I was asked to take some images of my friend and his ferret the day before they had to say goodbye.
It was clearly a difficult and emotional time for them, but I was happy to take the images and give them a way to maybe receive some closure and also have something to remember him by. Below are some of my favorites.
