I first met Murphy three years ago when he was adopted from Golden Retriever Rescue of Atlanta. He was about 11 years old when he was abandoned at a county animal shelter and GRRA pulled him so that he could find his way to a family that would give him a loving home to live out his golden years.

It took no time at all for Pete and Victoria to fall in love with this sweet boy, and in the three years he’s been with them, he’s visited nursing homes and become a loyal companion for his sister Maggie, a senior herself who has lost her sight and looks to Murphy for help when she needs it. I went back for another session to capture some images that would celebrate the time they’ve had together.

The bonds that have formed between these four are as if they’d been together their whole lives. I feel so honored to know this sweet boy and to have such compassionate and caring clients.

One of Murph’s favorite things in all the world? Car rides!
