Prepare yourself for a wonderful pet story full of love and pain, the story about overcoming the sorrow yet never forgetting what we had. Multi-award winning newborn, pregnancy and family photographer Sujata Setia became a mother in 2013 and her baby girl had her best friend Mustang, the dog. Sujata loved Mustang as a son, and everyone loved him as well. Sujata’s clients often wanted to take photo shoots with her pet and their newborn (few can be seen below). A heartbreaking day came and Mustang suddenly passed away, leaving a family devastated. Husband had an idea to get a new pet to make their daughter feel better. Sujata dismissed that thought as she recalls: “I couldn’t bring myself to love another pet like I loved Mustang. So when he went away, I started to photograph babies with other furry creatures. It was my way to deal with my loss, or tell myself that in some form, he is still around. Taking these images have helped me heal and we are soon going to bring home two wonderful puppies and one of them… we will name Mustang.” You can follow this wonderful artist on Instagram and her official page.
