The Kinder Family || Brookside Gardens - Silver Spring, Maryland

It's always a total treat to work with old friends, especially when you've been watching from afar as their lives grow and change (thanks, Facebook!). It's even more fun when we get to explore such a beautiful place like Brookside Gardens, which was in full bloom for our session.

Little Rosie was a total pro in front of the camera, smiling up a storm and totally embracing the little moments of wind that blew her hair up in to these fabulous formations.

All of these colors and textures were just incredible. And the smells! This Chinese wisteria was just heavenly.

I just adored this session, thanks to Alex and Lindsay for making it happen! -MEJ
