Military Vets Gifted With Professional Portraits With Their Pets
What better picture to gaze at than a portrait of your beloved pet?
One veteran of the war in Iraq gets that.
She’s a dog lover.
And someone who has had her share of personal struggles.
Marla Keown tells Fox31 Denver, “When I started going through my own troubles, I realized that I wasn’t alone, that there is lots of veterans out there that would like to have a nice portrait of themselves with their pet, and they don’t.”
Now they do, thanks to this generous and understanding professional photographer.
Marla gives a deeper explanation on her website on why she created Vets With Pets.
She says lost her brother to suicide March 2016 and found herself leaning on her dog, Walker, to get through the difficult times. Realizing that there are a LOT of other veterans out there like Marla – going through crappy times and relying on their pet as emotional support – she wanted to showcase that love and bond between veterans and their pets as well as provide a free image for each veteran that participated. And so came to be Vets with Pets.
And so it is.
