This family contacted me to say "tulips are my absolute favorite!" And like most people in the area, including myself until recently, they had no idea the gardens even existed.
As with all my shoots, I learn something new every time. From this shoot, I learned how short children's attention span really is. Look at those smiles the first 2 minutes of our session! I knew they would wear out fast, but I've got to bring my best work quickly! All-in-all I think it was a huge success, and it allows me to get plenty of candids of them running wild in the garden and enjoying their gummy worm treats.
Sherwood Gardens is quickly becoming my go-to outdoor photo shoot location. Each weekend it is over run with families and photographers taking advantage of this idyllic setting and all too brief tulip season. Next year, be sure to take advantage of my mini-photo shoots. I offer brief sessions during special times of the year such as this - Cherry Blossoms, Fall Foliage, and now the tulips!
