Rose Garden

Most of the time the first question people ask me about a shoot is, "Where should we have the shoot? What looks good in pictures?" Of course, there are many answers to that question, but for the most part the background of a image isn't as important as the face that the picture is of.

It helps when the shoot is held in a lovely place, but it's not essential. That said, I was so excited to get to do a shoot in the Rose Garden in Tyler Texas. It's one of my favorite locations and provides pleasing natural backgrounds, and look at the gorgeous kids I got to shoot there!

This is the eldest, Blake, who has the coolest green/hazel eyes. He was a total gentleman and so easy to work with.

This is Lauren who is a total ham! I think she would have been delighted if I blew off the family shoot and spent the entire session just shooting her. :)

This is Kate who, in the interest of diversity, wasn't so thrilled about having her picture made. However, we got some pretty shots of her too, it just took a little more effort.

I adore freckles! I was so delighted when I met Kate and saw her lovely face.

We did get some shots of the entire family as well, but I'm leaving those off the blog so those of you who know this family will still be surprised when you get your Christmas cards! :)

I don't think so, but it sounds like a great idea! If you know of any pro-life groups that would like pictures from the life chain, I'm trying to make them available to more groups.
