When my co-worker purchased a gift certificate from me as a Father’s Day gift I knew it would be a few months before they were ready to schedule their session. Her family had been through some big changes in recent months and hadn’t had pictures done in some time so she was excited to have something different than the usual portrait studio shots. Due to her Dad’s limited mobility we decided to do the photos at her parents’ home where he’d be most comfortable and their dogs could roam freely. Her boyfriend also joined in the fun, so we snuck in a few couple photos of them as well. The entire time they joked and laughed with each other, making it fun for me to capture their genuine smiles. Even the dogs smiled. And that is the sign of a happy family!
