Maria & Erica

I have always had a place in my heart for arboretums.

When I was in high school, I used to hang out in Valley Forge National Park all the time. I love being outside and do about 95% of my shoots with natural lighting. So when Erica and I were looking for a place to shoot, I was shocked that I had never even heard of Tyler Arboretum !

Erica suggested we should shoot there and, let me tell you, I will DEFINITELY be going back to visit ! Tyler arboretum was beautiful ! The grounds were so expansive, the lighting was stunning, and the colors (even in the dead of winter) seemed to glow !

I met Erica and her sister, Maria, at the entrance to Tyler arboretum. We grabbed a bunch of outfits from the back of their car, and headed off to shoot. Maria told me she was a little nervous to start shooting, but after a few minutes (and help from Erica), we were all giggling and channeling our inner models.

We started shooting in this beautiful open field.wp105It was right next to this greenhouse. Unfortunately, the door was locked, but we still snapped some photos outside wpM&E-53wp106Maria liked this wonky little house, and I did too ! wp1We moved deeper into the woods to take some portraits ! wpM&E-33wpM&E-27Off the path a little we found a little white house wpM&E-19I just love these two !
