After our harsh winter here in Michigan,
I was giddy about photographing spring flowers.
As a portrait photographer, I photograph a ton of babies,
so I decided to plop some into the flowers!
It's so much fun...I have been running around to
some of the most gorgeous flower gardens in Michigan this spring.
This garden happens to be in my friend Kathy's front yard.
I drive over every few days because new varieties pop out daily.
My eyes were popping out over her pink peonies!
I pictured a little newborn nestled into the flower.
In late May, I did a photo shoot at Dow Gardens in Midland.
Oh, my LORD!!!!
They are famous for their hundreds of tulips!
They were at peak bloom
in every variety, color and shape!
After the shoot, I photographed the tulips.
I quickly figured out how to frame the flower
to add a baby later.
Now I have a folder packed with tulip photos
waiting for babies!
I love the soft pastels to blur like Monet paintings
for the portrait backgrounds.
In June, I visited the Detroit Zoo with my photo club.
Forget the animals, I spent most of my time in the
exquisite iris gardens which were also at peak bloom.
Gorgeous irises in colors I have never seen before!
So many fun ways to add babies to flowers!
