Ella was rescued from a shelter many years ago and was adopted by a really amazing family. I had the opportunity to meet Ella this last Thursday evening. She was such a sweet, gorgeous, soulful little girl. We spent an hour hanging out in the yard, enjoying some peaceful moments together with her family.
Ella’s family recently found out that she was very, very sick and would have to be put down. So while this photo session was EXTREMELY sad (it really took quite a bit of effort to keep from bursting out into tears while I was there) I marveled at the beauty of this family, and how much love there was that day — for each other and for sweet little Ella.
The day after these photos were taken, Ella crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge.

Rest in peace, sweet Ella. You are so dearly loved.
