Sunset Session at Bea Hive Farm
The setting: Bea Hive Farm sessions
The characters: Cody, Natalie & Avery
The crew: two horses, a pig, and birds galore
The feeling: joy, wonder, and excitement
Photographing families at Bea Hive Farm this year was a dream. Let me tell you the easiest way to get a genuine smile from kids: animals. Well, that and large fields of wildflowers to smell and pick a bouquet. Both will do the trick! Luckily, both were present for the Gunderson family.
Avery was in farm heaven. She waddled with the ducks. She chatted with the horses, stroking their noses. Then, Avery almost took a cat home (just kidding, but given the option, the Gunderson’s would be +1 fluffy cat!).
The Gunderson family is always excellent to work with and this year was no exception! A little fun fact is that I went to high school with Cody, so photographing him and the family he’s made is a true joy for me.
Last year, I had the pleasure of working with the family at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. That particular session, we faced drizzle and cool fall temperatures. This year, the family was fortunate to have a nice sunny day! Be sure to go back and watch 2018’s Moving Portrait to see how Avery has grown so much in just a year!
