We picked this lavender field location last-minute for their son’s first birthday family portraits and I couldn’t have been happier about it. The fields made me feel like I was in Provence!

I love his rust-colored pants and suspenders and Mom’s lace dress — they fit perfectly with the romantic scenery.
