The best thing about family photography is that I get to capture intimate moments between family members and highlight how amazing they are together. It was easy to photograph this family because of their beautiful connection. This little guy was their miracle baby and it was so obvious that his parents simply adored him. We met them and their dog Sam at Webster’s Corner Park in Maple Ridge. I really love that Sam was honoured as being part of the family too! Because I totally believe that pets are family members. If you want to include your pet in your family sessions, I say yes!
In the end, we worked really hard on coaxing smiles out of this little guy, and wow was he a hard sell! However, eventually we did get those smiles!
There is nothing quite like a parent’s love and I love how that rings so clear in this shoot.
