When little 1-month-old Connor posed for an adorable autumn photoshoot, no one expected a wild deer to show up! Maggie the deer, a local favorite at Sam Houston Jones State Park in Louisiana, was rescued and hand-fed at birth, so she had no problem posing for the camera to turn the chance encounter into a beautiful opportunity.

“Maggie was hand-fed as a baby, so she’s very comfortable with people,” Megan Rion, the photographer at Imagine That Photography who took the photos, told Yahoo Parenting. “But I always make sure that we have one hand right near the baby, because she is a wild animal.”

“We’ve seen her in about five different photo shoots,” Rion continued. “I didn’t even know she was going to show up at the spot where I like to take pictures at.”
