I took the nicest family to Blake Garden in Kensington for a photo shoot the other day. If you’ve never been to Blake Garden, I encourage you to do so. The garden and a magnificent mansion is the official home for the President of the University of California. It’s open to the public during weekday hours. You can go for a wonder in the redwood grove, stroll among the flowering formal garden, picnic on the great lawn or climb on a massive rock and enjoy the Bay view.
Mary, Dan, Matthew and I tried out a few different places for our shoot. Since 2 year olds like to move around, we played and had a good time. I love Matthew’s curiosity and his playfulness. In addition to having a fun time, I like how the portraits are free-flowing and capture the day and the energy of the time-of-life of this family.
