"Pelei's Eyes"
I had the honor of photographing Pelei twice. Once, with the 3 sisters who adopted and loved her with all their heart. The second time, right before Pelei's life ended after a short and painful fight with cancer. 

Pelei was definitely one of my favorite subjects to photograph. During our first session, she was mesmerized by the camera, the lights, the popping of the lights, and the smooth surface that she couldn't seem to get a foothold on :) 

Just by having her sit still I was able to move around Pelei and capture parts of her that I think show the exquisite beauty of a dog. I'll never forget her, and I'm so so glad I was able to give her girls some pictures to remember her by. 

These prints are 6x9, printed on either 8x10 or 8.5x11 Ilford paper. All prints are titled and signed. I used to print with a lab, but I'm going back to making my own prints. It's more homemade, and it's more personal :)
