The Covert Family- Northern VA Poppy Field Portraits

“you and me baby and the daffodils
the kids growing up in the rolling hills
and love will be enough for us”

Northern_VA_Poppy_Field_Portraits_Covert01***EDIT: unfortunately this lovely field of poppy flowers has been turned into a highway instead. This was truly just a random field off of 66, not an actual farm/garden/location, and we may or may not have jumped across a few lanes of traffic to get to it. It has since been turned into part of their new construction, and no longer blooms.***

my sweet friend katie has a thing for poppies. and i have a thing for portraits of her cute family. so naturally, when she discovered a huge field full of poppies off the side of the road, we had to make a little bit of magic happen :) i’ve now photographed Cedar Belle in a field of lavender and a field of sunflowers, and now poppies!
