A Sunny Morning at Cylburn Arboretum
May 26, 2014
We met early in the morning for our session at Baltimore’s Cylburn Arboretum. Little Nolan, big sister Hayley, and their parents were ready for their close ups. The weather and location were perfect for this adventurous family. The once private estate boasts over 200 acres of gardens, trails, sculptures, and greenery to explore. Once I arrived, I knew I wanted to show a bit more scale in the photos. Really have some wide shots of them in the vast gardens. Then move in super close for the moments shared between each other. So we began in the Formal Gardens and worked our way around. We ran, climbed, and laid in the grass for much of the shoot. Hayley became quite skilled with the blue paper parasol. Nolan was at home in a field of little yellow flowers. Mom and Dad were right there with them ready to play and cuddle. This truly was a warm and fun shoot.
