Everybody dreams of a field of flowers for their family portraits, but wildflowers come and go with the weather and they can be hard to predict. I had just completed this family’s session and said goodbye as we drove away in opposite directions. On the way home, I spotted this patch of wildflowers on the side of the road, so I quickly called the family and asked them if they’d be willing to turn around and come back. I’m so glad they did because we got some beautifully spontaneous pictures with the light just right, natural smiles and a little breeze in the air.
Little Joseph is raised on a farm, so he fell right into place in this field of poppies and lupines.
I’ll never stop loving pictures of daddy snuggles.
I’m so thankful for families that are willing to play along with my wild ideas!
