The other day, I wanted to show a new client some ideas for photo session sites in the local area. The Rose Garden was one of them. But when I looked at past blog posts, they were nowhere to be found. And this was one session I really wanted to share…so many personal faves.
Around October, Autumn colors begin to dominate the area. The changing of the season from Summer to Fall usually means that flowers, particularly roses, have passed their blooming stage and withered away, anticipating the beginning of a new cycle. This is often a worry when it comes to photos but luckily…we live in California. The municipal Rose Garden in San Jose still blooms, though not as much as in the Spring. October in the Rose garden still offers vibrant colors, gorgeous backdrops and an endless number of picture-perfect spots. Add a wonderful close-knit family with a daughter bubbling with the non-stop energy typical of an 8-year-old and a son with tweendom attitude, embarrassed by the slightest public display of affection and you have the makings of a particularly fun and sweet session.
Sooooo many images to choose from…next post, we’ll take a look at how we created a gorgeous display for their living room wall – certainly an eye-catching focal point.
More to come…stay tuned…
