Disney’s Polynesian Resort is an absolute personal favourite to do photo sessions at. And I was so happy when my friend, Crista, chose this location for her parents’ session. Crista purchased this session for her parents as a gift and I am so glad that she did. Her parents are incredibly adorable and it was so much fun to spend time with them. Their chemistry was so cute to watch. Like the cutest. I met them at the Pineapple Lanai, which is where you can get the pineapple dole whip at the Polynesian resort. This is also my all time favourite snack. Mmmm not I want a dole whip. We spent our hour together wandering all the pathways of the Polynesian before we made our way to the lakefront where the overwater bungalows are located. I always like to incorporate the beach photos into sessions at the Polynesian. Typically on a clear day, you can get a great view of Cinderella’s castle in the background.
During this session, I really loved how Crista’s dad was full of suggestions on photo opportunities we could do. It was clear that they were having as much fun during this session as I was. One thing I loved most was that Crista stayed with us drinking her pineapple beverage. I think she loved that as well. I can only hope that I will get to spend time with her parents again in the future. They were so nice and a lot of fun. Near the end of our session, a gardener that worked for Walt Disney World, saw us doing our session, and picked a beautiful flower to give to her mom to put in her hair. It was the perfect accessory and matched her outfit just so.
And a little reality vs. expectation. Crista enjoying her drink.
