I lived in Logan for two years and never made it to the poppy field once! I was so sad that I never made it work, that I was determined to have a family session this year. My cute little guy is 5 months old and LOVES being outside and the color orange, so we had to make it happen and we are so glad we did.
Making friends in the photography world is sometimes hard, but one way I've found to do it is plan trade sessions, which is exactly what this shoot was. Sierra and I decided to swap family sessions up at the poppies so we both met there and took pictures of each other. We then swapped the photos so we could each edit our own to our liking. I'm so grateful for others that want to do trade sessions and we always have a blast!
Getting to the poppies was a bit of an ordeal. I mapped out the time earlier in the day so that I knew when we'd need to leave by. As soon as we hopped on the freeway and checked google maps to figure out what time we'd arrive, it said it was going to take 45 minutes longer! There was so much traffic as we soon saw on the freeway and right before the exit to Mantua they were doing construction and it was a nightmare there too. It didn't stop us from having some beautiful light though!
I absolutely loved the poppies!! It was such a dream come true to walk through that beautiful half-trampled field. Henry loved all the color and we loved having these new family photos!
I also loved being able to get just a couple with my sweetheart again. He's my rock and my biggest supporter and I love him more than words can express. And I absolutely love dancing with him. Sierra asked us to pretend we were slow dancing, and well, we took the opportunity and actually danced. Whenever we dance, I'm always reminded of when we were young and still giddy over each other and loved to slow dance. My heart still skips beats remembering it!
I definitely plan to utilize the poppy fields more in the coming years, and can't wait to do a bridal session there sometime!!
