According to Caters News, the mother bear and her triplet cubs had only been outdoors for a short while when Kokta came across the family in Manitoba, Canada. Kokta, who is from Issaquah, Wash., has been photographing polar bear families for the past few years, carefully learning their first moves. He travels to Canada often to locate polar bear families and photograph them in the wild.
