I miss Ace more than you can imagine, and although I have other pictures of him, none of them capture his personality like the ones you took do. Thank you so much!
“You don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone,”
…sang the legendary Joni Mitchell, on her ‘Ladies of the Canyon’ album of 1970.
Surely we’re all shortsighted about a great many things, but her lyrics miss the mark when it comes to your dog. You know exactly what you have.
Your dog is a cherished family member. A truehearted companion. A best friend, who, like a magical, medieval alchemist, has taken the clumsy, imperfect love we humans are known for and trasmuted it into something impossibly pure. What you’re given, you’ve received back a hundredfold.
Courage, dear heart. While the thought of saying goodbye can be overwhelming, today is a time for celebration. A time to shine a spotlight on the tremendous love you share. To create an enduring memento, and ensure your memories will never fade.
Here’s my promise: Honoring your pet with a Rainbow Bridge Session is a gift your future self will thank you for.
I’m Ashley Hahn…
…longtime photographer, friend to all dogs, and mom to 2 elderly pups who are absolutely forbidden from ever leaving me!
Because I’ve been there before, I understand the waves of emotion you’re feeling, as your time together begins to wind down. But I also know the importance of celebrating every single moment, the joy of slowing down and being fully present, and the immeasurable value of having beautiful photographs to hold onto.
There’s a sweetness to these Rainbow Bridge Sessions that’s hard to put into words. You’re reflecting on your relationship, sharing your favorite stories, and creating a permanent visual record of your love.
It’s the tribute that every dog deserves—but especially yours.
How does this work?
Get started by clicking the gold button below, or reach out by phone or email. If you’re in a time sensitive situation, please know that I’ll move mountains to get you scheduled as quickly as possible. A bit of easy (digital) paperwork and a deposit is all you need to get on my calendar.
Our time together is more than just a photo session—it’s a celebration of life. We’ll turn your extraordinary relationship into tangible memories you’ll reach for again and again. We can meet somewhere meaningful to you and your pet, or hold our session in the comfort of your home.
Within a few weeks, you’ll get a private online gallery filled with the best images from our session. Choose your favorites to download and enjoy, or order professional prints and artwork directly from your gallery. You’ll also receive a custom digital watercolor, lovingly made from one of your photos.
What we have once enjoyed, we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.

Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of pets will you photograph?
I’m primarily a dog photographer, but will happily photograph your horse or other furry, feathered and finned friends. I’m sorry to say, severe allergies prevent me from photographing cats.
Am I able to be in the photos with my pet(s)?
Absolutely—I wholeheartedly encourage you to join your pet for some of the images. Capturing your relationship right now is especially meaningful, and I have a variety of flattering pose ideas at my fingertips.
Can my other pet(s) be in the photos?
Your session fee includes one pet, but you’re welcome to add additional critters at $25 each.
Do I need to supply my own treats?
I’m well-stocked with delicious treats, but if your pup has any dietary restrictions, please do have something ready. And be sure they’re the good treats—this is no time to hold back!
Can I get the digital files?
But of course. Your package includes 10 high-resolution digital files that will look gorgeous when printed, along with a lovely digital watercolor. You can purchase additional images for $100 per photo, or get the entire gallery for an additional $500.
How do I access my images?
You’ll receive all your images via a private online gallery where you can download your photos, share them, and even order your prints.
Do I need to print through you, or can I print elsewhere?
For the highest-quality prints, order directly through your private online gallery. There, you’ll have access to a top-notch print lab available only to professional photographers. You can certainly print elsewhere, but I can’t guarantee color fidelity or print quality.
How quickly will I get my photos after our session?
You’ll have your images within 6 weeks of our shoot—and often much sooner. I may share a sneak-peek on social media right away, with your permission, so be on the lookout for that.
What if I don't like any of my photos?!
While I’ve never had that happen, I do want you to feel totally confident about booking your session. That’s why you’re covered by a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you’re not delighted with your images, we’ll either schedule a re-shoot, if possible, or I’ll refund your session fee. It’s just that simple.
Okay, so how do I book my photography date with you?
Once we’ve chatted and made sure we’re a good fit, I’ll email you a digital contract and invoice. As soon as you’ve signed the contract and paid a 50% non-refundable retainer, the date is officially yours.
Thank you again, it was very difficult to only pick (the photos) we did. You captured amazing memories for us.
