We have it pretty good here in Northern California, there isn’t a long dreadful winter that causes us to hibernate for half the year or make long underwear an everyday must have. We do however- when we’re not in drought- get a substantial amount of rainfall that turns the once golden hillsides into emerald wonderlands. The past few weeks have been magical with all the wild flowers in bloom and the warm sunny days.
Helen Putnam Park seemed like the perfect place to go when Michaelann and I spoke about locations for her maternity/family portrait shoot. Over a year ago, 17 months to be exact, I photographed baby Ryder as a sweet little newborn, he’s now grown up to be handsome cherub with tousled curls.
