Every once in awhile you hear a story and your heart melts a little. That was the case when I heard about Ella’s Bucket List.
A few months ago my husband, Marty, read about Ella’s story. See Ella is an amazing pup that was rescued from a shelter in 2017. She was rescued and ended up with the RescuedOhio Family (a local animal rescue in Columbus Ohio). They joyfully helped Ella deliver her puppies and find amazing forever homes for them. And Ella’s foster Mom’s ended up adopting one of her puppies, Tormund. Ella was so grateful!
However, her story became a little more complicated in October of 2017. Ella was diagnosed with cancer. And after a few surgeries and unforeseen challenges, it was determined that Ella should be allowed to live the rest of her days pain free and enjoying life!
So Ella’s foster Momma’s created a bucket list and on that list was having family photos taken. That is where I come in!
I had the honor of capturing some amazing pictures of Ella and Tormund this past August. And Ella’s foster Momma’s Brittnie and Kaitlin.
This story really melts my heart, because these individuals that volunteer their time to these animal rescues are such amazing people!. They receive no compensation for taking these animals in to their homes and caring for their needs. They provide love and training and food and health care. The spend their time bonding with these animals and working hard to find them forever homes. They are angels if you ask me.
You see, this is near and dear to my heart, because we lost our sweet Zoey (a Cocker Spaniel) four years ago to cancer. So it was an honor to help Ella mark off family photos from her bucket list. I am sure these images will be treasured for years to come. I hope Ella and her family enjoyed them as much as I did taking them!
