Kathryn and Leo Holiday Portraits at Sunken Gardens

Kathryn and Leo decided to use the awesome locations at Sunken Gardens for their Christmas card photos this year. The park even had a day that dogs were allowed in! In addition to the usual great scenery, they had lots of pointsettias; even a giant pointsettia tree to use as a background. The only problem at the Sunken Gardens is trying to find enough time to fit everything in.
Starting out by a small tree near the park entrance.

I always love those in-between moments the best.

We came around the corner and found this huge tree! Score!

I'm always a sucker for a backlit forest.

Let gets comfortable in an area he chose himself for some individual shots.

Found a nice patch of grass to play around in.

The sun starts to drop and creates really intersting light throughout the property.

Despite the great colors everywhere, I still like a few converted to black and white.

Another succesful holiday portrait in the bag and in time for Christmas cards! More posts to come so hopefully I can get caught up again! Check back soon.

Rett's Spooky B-Day

I suppose the Halloween-inspired theme for this birthday party gives you an idea how far behind I am. I've photographed Rhett on several occasions and was glad to be there to shoot this superhero Halloween extravaganza.

The birthday boy shows off his "muscles."

Spooky cupcakes waiting for hungry kids.

The fairest princesses in the land.

Mmmmm, Capri Sun.

Baby eats while the big kids go play.

Plenty of love to go around.

Big brother fixes sissy's dress.

Darth Vader does the jitterbug.

The whole fam gathers for a group shot.

Happy Birthday Rhett! Here's to another year.
