Rainbow Bridge Sessions

Rainbow Bridge sessions in the Cedar Valley

What is a Rainbow Bridge Session?

Rainbow Bridge Sessions are for pets preparing to cross the Rainbow Bridge due to illness or aging. It is said that when a pet passes away that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to the Rainbow Bridge as they wait patiently for their human. We'll take a step back and slow things down with a calm and relaxed session dedicated to honoring them. You can devote this time entirely to capturing images of your pet or have the family join in if you wish. 

It's never "just a dog" or "just a pet". They become a part of your family and someone you will want to remember forever. A Rainbow Bridge Session helps capture their expressions, their quirks, their paws and little details, and most importantly, the love and bond you share. 


Their session can be held at a park or favorite spot of yours, in the privacy and comfort of your home/backyard, or in my studio in Waterloo. Your pet is my top priority during this session. If your session is time-sensitive, please be sure to share that upon inquiring about availability. Every effort will be made to accommodate your desired date but does not guarantee that I can get you booked on short notice. I typically and booking out 1-2 months in advance, so the sooner the better. 

What's included in your Rainbow Bridge Session & how much do they cost?

FAQ about my Rainbow Bridge Sessions (RBS):

  • Pets must be considered "senior" for the breed OR diagnosed with an illness that doesn't leave them much time.

  • RBS are scheduled Monday - Thursday only.

  • There is a small travel fee for locations 15 minutes outside Waterloo, IA. 

  • I prefer to have these sessions outdoors, but I do have a studio in Waterloo if the weather is an issue.

  • The immediate family of the pet is highly encouraged in the session!

  • I schedule any Rainbow Bridge Sessions from Oct - Nov as that is my extremely busy season. You may schedule a regular family session with me during this time though that includes your pet if desired.


The reality of losing our beloved pets can feel incredibly sad, but Rainbow Bridge Sessions are designed to be a celebration of your friendship and love with your pet.
