•April 2, 2010 • Leave a Comment

The Gardens here at the Studio – now over 1 and 1/2 acres – are in full spring bloom.  Gorgeous pansies are everywhere.  The variations in greens are at their height.  Also, we have added new architectural features that provide different areas for Portrait sittings.

Now is the perfect time to make arrangements for an outdoor sitting.
