They grow up so fast

My own daughter is turning 5 soon and she's been asking about her annual photo session. Lately with all the craziness going on in our world she's been a bit contemplative, looking at photos of all the people in our lives that she loves. We headed out to Elizabeth Park in the West End of Hartford this past week to take advantage of a beautiful day, get out of the house, and take some photos so we will always be able to remember what she was like at 5. Most people think of the beautiful rose gardens in the park. Don't get me wrong, the rose garden is absolutely amazing but there are also some amazing, less visited spots that make for absolutely whimsical, romantic photos.

We had a blast in the cool of the shade setting up these photos. I will cherish them forever.
