A Lovely Afternoon at Confederation Park
Mom, Dad, Daughters, and Dog: A Mini Session in Confederation Park
Down in Confederation Park, we met up with Chester and his humans for an outdoor Mini Session. His family has his mom and dad and their three little girls – which are nine, six and three years old; Chester, being the senior citizen of the bunch at thirteen-years-old! That’s 91 in dog years. This was a special shoot for his family because they wanted a session with Chester while he still has the energy to run and play.
We started with group shots of the whole family in a lovely shaded spot down by the water. The area had great open spaces for Chester to relax, and several different opportunities for unique poses. Down at the water’s edge, the girls all cuddled up to their family pet. We then moved into a groupings of the family with their faithful companion.
Chester’s two favourite things are carrots and balls, so we used them as tools to keep him looking our way. With the help of a strategically placed tennis ball, we got a few great top-down shots as Chester looked up at us. With carrots as a reward, we also had him running around the meadow, enjoying the space.
We then grouped the three sisters in several adorable poses. First, with the help of their mom, they climbed a tree that they affectionately dubbed ‘Banana Tree,’ because of its resemblance to an open banana peel. Then we had them lay in the grasses and flowers, heads in hands, feet up. Chester then snuggled right up beside them, putting an adorable final touch on the mini session.
We had a great afternoon with Chester and his family, and we hope they enjoy their photos as much as we enjoyed taking them!
