This is one of my favorites photos of one of our recent family photo sessions. I loved working with the Parson's family. Their baby was really cute. His blue and smile were beautiful. When Rachel contacted me, I got very excited when she mentioned that they wanted to include their dog in the session. Growing up, my family always had dogs. They were very important in my life. So, I can really appreciate how important it was for them to include their dog in the picture.
One of my favorite themes to photograph is the love between children and animals.They have such genuine feeling. Dogs, for example, are magnets to my children. Every time they see a dog, they stop and ask the owner if they can pet it. This one in particular is a dog that belonged to a farm that we visited over the weekend. My son fell in love with this dog. And I have the feeling that the dog was also happy to receive all this love from my child.
