there is something magical about a day at the gardens with children. maybe its the canopy of trees, the lush sprawling greens or the rainbow of flowers. but something just ignites their free spirits and allows them to run carefree under the sun. this was the backdrop of my last shoot. i met tyler and maddie with my own boys for a morning of child's play at the kanapaha gardens. we smelled the flowers, explored the hidden paths, discovered the small living creatures of the land. we simply enjoyed and interacted with nature. until of course, the florida heat crept up on us and ended our little garden party.
but it was fun while it lasted. take a look at some of my favorite images of the smyth kiddos...
