I recently had the privilege of witnessing and photographing Scooter’s last sunset with Elena. We spent a beautiful evening together in Far Hills, NJ. The day had been previously full of thunderstorms, but we got lucky. The rain broke and the clouds cleared just enough to give us a stunning sunset for Scooter and Elena.
Scooter was such a larger than life dog when I first met him. I remember thinking he looked like such a majestic creature, like a lion (as he proudly hopped up on top of a picnic table in Verona Park to have his photo taken). He was always up for snuggles, ear scratches, and seemed to be the leader of his doggy crew.
Elena and Scooter very clearly had a special bond, the kind you can only have when you have been through all of the big and small moments and come out the other side, together.
Elena and Scooter, thank you for allowing me to witness your love and bond one last time. It was truly an honor to be able to document these intimate moments for you two.
Scooter crossed over the Rainbow Bridge the next morning. Until we meet again, sweet boy…
