This sweet family had a unique request for their session location – they wanted to spend the day at the lovely forested retreat Land of Medicine Buddha. Special places make for special portraits -

We explored the trails, finding prayer wheels, chimes, Buddha statues, and lots of great places for the little one to practice walking -

There’s nothing quite like Fairyland when you’re little. The possibilities for playing, exploring, and making new friends are endless, and everything is sized just right. I hadn’t been back to Fairyland since I was small, so I had a blast trying to keep up with this energetic toddler as she and her mama showed me [...]
