Celebrate Your Pet’s Legacy: End-of-Life Photography to Preserve Your Pet’s Story

Losing a beloved pet can be one of the most challenging experiences a pet owner can face. 

I know I’m not alone in saying I wish our pets could live longer. 

Since we all know the pain of saying goodbye is inevitable, many pet owners throughout DFW contact us as that time draws nearer to celebrate their furry friend’s life with an end-of-life pet photography session. 

In our studio, we’ve decided to call these extra special photo sessions “Legacy Sessions.” 

We are honored to be a part of these photography sessions and know it’s an incredibly meaningful way to honor the life and memory of your pet. It’s a special experience and the artwork becomes more and more treasured over the course of time. 


It’s Our Honor

My team and I consider photographing your pet’s Legacy Session an honor that we’ll never forget. Each pet holds a special place in our hearts too. 

We recognize we are capturing an important and unforgettable part of your family. 

We’ve been at the end of the journey ourselves and truly believe it’s important to acknowledge and memorialize your love in a beautiful and dignified way. 

As our memories fade some over time, you’ll be able to look back on the artwork and treasure your tangible memories.

The Experience

When it comes to end-of-life pet photography sessions, my team and I believe that the experience itself is just as important as the final photos. 

Our goal is to go above and beyond to create a customized photography experience that’s designed to be the best day ever for your pet.

My team and I always focus on living in the moment, keeping it positive, and meeting your pet wherever he or she is at. 

That means no matter what the circumstances we will find a way to keep you smiling, make sure your pet is treated like the VIP (“Very Important Pet”) he or she is, and capture the best images possible.

Naturally, we understand this can be a time when emotions are running high, and we want to ensure that both you and your pet feel comfortable and at ease throughout the session. Rest assured, my team and I always create a calm, relaxed environment that allows your pet’s true personality to shine through.

During the session, you’ll have the opportunity to truly live in the moment with your pet and create lasting memories that will stay with you. 

My goal is to capture what you need and most often this includes candid moments of you and your pet interacting, as well as more posed portraits that highlight your pet’s unique features and personality. 

My team and I will coach you all along the way to what will photograph the best from location to poses to ideas. We are here to help you make the most of your photography experience.

As we all know, every pet is unique so what we capture is always unique to your pet and that specific moment in time. This process is all about celebrating the special bond between you and your pet and creating a tribute that honors your pet’s life and legacy.

About Your Photographer

I’ve been in your shoes. When I started Jenna Regan Photography over 10 years ago, my family looked a little different.

In just the last 5 years, I’ve said goodbye to one horse, three dogs, and one cat. 

It never gets easier for me to face the fact that we just can’t keep them forever. 

I once heard “The pain is the price for the love.” I know without a doubt I would never want to miss the years of happy memories we shared.

I can tell you from my heart that when I look back, the portraits I have of them are some of my most treasured possessions, and being able to look at them in my home has brought me so much joy and healing. 

That’s the gift I hope to give to you.

In Loving Memory of…  Josey, Clyde, Jack, Ace, and Quincy.

How do you know it’s time to schedule an end-of-life session for your pet?

If you’re reading this, the time is now. It really isn’t something to wait on. We have never had any clients say that they wish they waited longer. Yet far too often we hear about pets we never had the chance to work with and it’s heartbreaking for everyone. 


Legacy Sessions for senior or terminally ill pets always receive priority booking. My team and I will do everything possible to schedule you right away, including moving appointments if necessary. 

Please don’t hesitate to reach out and share your circumstances. We never want you to feel like you’ve missed your chance. 

That being said please know you don’t need to wait until the end to contact us. We are happy to schedule a legacy session at any time in your pet’s journey. 

What if my pet has special needs?

My team and I can honestly say we work with pets of all ages, breeds, and levels of abilities. All pets are welcome here!

During our initial phone call and later at the Portrait Planning Appointment, we will strategize on how to best accomplish what you are hoping for. There are so many possibilities for strategies that my team and I can use to help bring together the photo session of your dreams!
