Frogs & Snails…and a Horse! {Maple Ridge Maternity Photography}

Frogs and snails and puppy-dogs’ tails, the final chapter.

Let me preface this last post of the Zeron family by saying that I am not an equine photographer.  In fact, before this session I’d never photographed a horse!  So while these images may not be technically correct as far as horse photography is concerned, I hope that I was able to capture the bond between Shannon and her precious Gracie.  In my photography my goal is to capture images that portray the emotion and relationships between my clients and those they love, and Shannon and Gracie were no different.  There is always such a special bond between an animal and it’s human, no matter the type of animal, and that was what I hoped to document in these images.

We finished our session in some beautiful golden light near the edge of their farm, overlooking a field, a forest, and the mountains.  It was simply stunning!  The most moving thing about that time, however, was the special moments Wyatt spent with his mom and dad.  Since he had told me that his favorite thing to do with his daddy was to ride the tractor, Les brought it out to capture a couple of images on.  It’s the cutest little tractor I’ve ever seen!
