I worked with this Ukrainian family a few months ago and they had such an amazing energy and I so loved playing with them, for that’s what our session was, play! When mama spoke with me last, she suggested we come out to Château de Beloeil for her next session because it was so gorgeous. So here we are a few weeks before my move at a château for more gorgeous family pictures of this amazing family!
I was thrilled when I watched them walk up because I suspected they were wearing some traditional clothes from the Ukraine and I love how unique and personal their choice was.
We explored the grounds and had as much fun as we could and I think it shows through as much as this family’s love for each other.

Evidence of a well-lived life is to get to know people and to enjoy their life for no other reason than because they are happy. I was able to meet this family when I worked at the local teen center and as we both prepare to depart Belgium, they allowed me (yes allowed) to take their family portraits. These teens were a handful despite knowing and liking me (most days) but we still had fun and captured some cute memories.
I have to put this dad on high too–he’s such a great father and is always there for all three of his kids, I got to witness his willingness to put them first, love them for who they are, and let them make mistakes.
