Thanksgiving weekend we were blessed with gorgeous warm, sunny weather and so I was extra grateful to have the opportunity to photograph a family portrait with dogs at a magnificent 1,000 acre trail park right in the middle of town. Living out in the country for so many years, I had no idea of the existence of this park and was thrilled to have it introduced to me. The dogs have the ability to roam leash free, leading us on a meandering forest walk to a stream bed.

The morning light was gorgeous.

These two lovely individuals made my job so easy. I didn’t ask them for a thing, no direction necessary, they just enjoyed being together, allowing me to document their love. 🙂
