B Family | Bush Pasture Park | Salem Oregon Family Photographer

August 16, 2021

This precious little family met me at Bush Park on bright sunny day and their little toddler wasn’t so sure about this weird lady with a big camera at first. We let him decide where we should go first and ended up by the creek watching the ducks. I let him have space while taking some photos of their sweet interactions on the bridge and once I showed him how to throw leaves off the edge, then were pals from there on out. I find things work much better when I let kids make decisions and have the time they need to adjust to this new experience rather than forcing smiles or cooperation. Nobody likes that.
