Meet the Wasynczuk Family - a super sweet family who booked their first session with me to celebrate their youngest daughter's first birthday! I actually met mom almost 2 years ago at a local playground. Our girls were playing together so we began chatting about our kids and lives (as most moms do on a playground!) She took my information and then followed me on social media. After having their second daughter, mom contacted me to book a portrait session for their family and some first birthday photos for Olivia. Mom knew she wanted to use a more natural location, possibly with a field of tall grass and wildflowers, so I started to come up with a list of recommended spots. I was driving through a local park and saw an open field with beautiful white wildflowers and it happened to be the same park I met her in two years ago! I was so excited when she agreed on this location!
They brought their adorable dog with them and we made sure to capture some family photos with her included. We took a range of photos on a secluded road and empty hillside and then drove over to the grassy field with wildflowers. The sun was starting to set over the back of the hill and field, so by the time we got to the cake smash photos with Olivia, we had a gorgeous golden glow over the tall grass! Olivia had no problems jumping in and eating her cake. Some babies just know to go for it and others need a little convincing....but she needed no help at all! And big sister Emily was standing by waiting for the go-ahead from mom and dad to jump in and help Olivia with her cake! I love the images of the two sisters sitting in the tall grass with a gorgeous sunset behind them, eating cake together...and Olivia's reactions are just priceless!
It was so much fun catching up with the Wasynczuk family and capturing these fun memories for them!
