I got an email in April that broke my heart.  Coleman, a super handsome 10 year old Golden Retriever, had undergone a splenectomy in early February and was subsequently diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma, a vicious blood cancer with no cure that is prevalent in goldens.  It’s the same cancer that Camden is battling right now.  Coleman’s family had brought him from their home in upstate New York to the beach for “one last visit” and while they were in town, they wanted to capture some photos of him in his element.  I was truly honored to do this session for them and I LOVED meeting Coleman, who was such an amazing model!  We had so much fun at their beach house and then exploring at the beach.

I’m happy to report that Coleman is still doing well and beating the odds!  I wish him nothing but the best as he continues to fight hemangiosarcoma… a disease we know all too well in this household.  Here are some of my favorites from Coleman’s spring time Folly Beach session…
