Dreamy snaps capture the bond between baby and his best furry friend

It’s the Instagram account that makes you wish you had obedient, cute-as-a-button children. And placid pets. And a knack behind the lens.

Canadian mother-of-three Elizabeth is the clever cookie behind a dreamy Instagram account, snapping beautifully styled images of her photogenic ‘babies’  – her children, her three rescue cats and three rescue dogs.


With light-filled photographs and silhouette portraits worthy of a glossy magazine, it’s the pics of the photographer’s infant son napping alongside pet dog Nora that are something else. The pics even have their own hashtag, #nappingwithnora.


“It’s such a thrill for me to show what a love-filled home we have and, equally important, how awesome rescue dogs are,” Elizabeth says.

“This dog in particular, Nora, had a pretty negative start in life, but is still the most passive and gentle soul there is.

“Our other dogs, Remington and Drake are equally wonderful.

“‘Adopt, don’t shop’ is our motto around here. Please consider this the next time you are in the market for a family pet!”


Elizabeth writes that the family adopted Nora from a rescue shelter seven years ago, prior to having kids.

“Despite having come from an abusive situation her sweet and gentle nature shone through and we knew with certainty she would be a wonderful family dog when the time came. She absolutely did not disappoint!” she remembers.

Elzabeth says she can’t get enough of the strong connection her baby and dog have made in such a short period of time.
