Peonies at Wild Hearts Farm

Peonies hold a special place in my heart. In 2009, I had my first child. That Mother’s Day I received six potted peony plants as gifts. Those plants lived and bloomed at my home in NE Seattle for many years. When my bestie and I started Wild Hearts Farm in Tacoma, the peonies moved to their forever home in the shadow of the glasshouse.  They’ve since gained many new friends and have flourished into a field of pink blooms.

Family of Four in a Sea of Pink

This Spring I photographed a beautiful family of four & their beloved fur-baby in the peony field at Wild Hearts Farm. As we explored the peony field, I captured candid as well as thoughtfully curated moments of them together in the blooms. 

The Magic of Peonies

Peonies have a way of making any photo session feel extra special. Their vibrant pink pops of color make for a whimsical setting. Just perfect for family photos, childhood milestones, and senior portraits.

  • Family Photography: Peonies provide a beautiful backdrop for capturing the love and connection between family members.
  • Childhood Milestones Photography: Celebrate your child’s first birthday, high school graduation, or any special occasion amidst the peonies for stunning photos that you are sure to love.
  • Senior Portraits: The peonies’ beauty make a beautiful backdrop for timeless high school senior photos.

2025 peony sessions will open for booking in January!

The beauty of the peony fields at Wild Hearts Farm is fleeting. Blooming just once per year for three weeks. This family photo were taken mid-June at golden hour (2 hours before sunset).

These coveted golden hour session on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings at Wild Hearts Farm will fill up quickly. Contact me here to be notified when sessions are released.
