Pretty Peonies

Pin It

One of my favorite details to photograph at weddings and in general anywhere I travel has to be flowers!  Their color and texture and shape beg me to photograph them.  Peonies are so beautiful, and they top my list of favorite blooms.  They were the focal flowers in my wedding bouquet. And my parents planted some heirloom peonies in our yard for us last fall!  They have been blooming over the past two weeks, and I am smitten with them!  When I saw that a friend of mine had signed up for a floral arranging class featuring peonies, I crossed my fingers that it would work out for me, and it did!  It was so much fun, and just the bit of creative inspiration I'd been searching for!  Thank you to Kindred - the boheme collective for hosting such a fun event!  If you're looking for one of a kind clothing and accessories in a magazine-worthy environment, check them out and tell them I sent you!  I can't wait to go back - I have my eye on some gorgeous items! And many thanks to sweet and talented Jacki of Ladybird for teaching all of us some floral arranging wisdom!  With such swoon-worthy flowers, I couldn't help but have a mini photo shoot!  Lola loves peonies too, so she happily modeled for a few!  Here are some favorites!

I always love photographing this sweet girl!  She's beautiful inside and out.  And she has a such a warm, friendly, bubbly personality!  For the past several years, she's been volunteering her free time working with animals at the local shelter and reading to dogs at the library.  Instead of receiving toys and gifts for her birthday, she asks that friends and family consider donating much needed items for animals in need.  How incredible is that?!  Mason, it has been such and honor and beyond fun to watch you grow up into such a generous and thoughtful person!  Here are a few favorites from her most recent spring portrait session!  Prepare for cuteness overload! We had a lovely spring afternoon with golden sunshine...and this cutie pie's sweet smile!

Hi Mason!

Definitely a favorite!



I can totally hear her little giggles in this one!

 Please do not make me choose just one (or two or three!) favorite, it would be impossible! Love this!

Mason, dear, you are gorgeous!

There is just something about this last favorite that I absolutely love!

Mason, thank you so much for such a fun session!  You are a doll, a sweetheart, and a joy to be around! Your parents must be so very proud of you! Can't wait to see you again!  Hugs!!!
