This is one of the most photographed spots at Longwood Gardens.  It seems there should be an “X” marked on the ground and a little sign that says “Kodak Photo Spot” so that everyone stops to take a photo here.  It is a beautiful location no matter what the season!  Typically I shy away from shooting images that make their way into most everyone’s portfolio because I’m looking for something unique, but I really do love this scene.

The tulip display at Longwood Gardens is always worth a visit.  The challenge is to come away with photos that don’t have people in them because the crowds are very large at this time of year!  I shot almost exclusively with my Lensbaby on this visit because I wanted a softer look to my images.

Gabriel has settled in with his big brother and sister and is growing fast.  He’s 11 months old, almost always up to something mischievous, and he’s become a super model seemingly overnight.  Getting him to sit still long enough for a few photos is a challenge, but we’ve pulled off some blog worthy images, like this one!


If only I could give up my real job and just be a beach bum!  I’d sit by the sea, listening to the sounds of the waves and gulls, and then wander the shore looking for seashells.  Just dreaming………!
