Just wondering if anybody has received such assignments before. To photograph people or pets that are going to die. I'm in the process of photographing a pet who is losing its fight against old age and illness. The owner (who is a friend) and family wants to keep this family member close to heart via a family portrait.
This experience has got me thinking and i'm curious to know if anybody here has come across such assignments, particularly for people instead of pets. I'm keen to know how you would approach the job without feeling the grieve of the family.
