Spring Fever!

I absolutely adore the changing of the seasons! By far my absolute most favorite season is Spring! Everything is just so fresh and vibrant *sigh* I can't wait!! Four more days and it will officially be Spring! Though, I'm afraid we'll still have to wait a few more weeks for it to feel and look more like spring... so until that time, I'd like to share some of my favorite Spring/early Summer photos that I've taken from the past couple of years.

Enjoy!

This particular photo was taken at one of my fave places ever, Alstede Farms. They have the most amazingly beautiful selection of "Cut Your Own Flowers" there!

Can you tell I love pink?

This is another fave location. I first spotted this field about 3 springs ago. Then, as it turned out, the following spring I got a job right around the corner from it. The first chance I got I used this field for a shoot and plan to do many more shoots at this spot this coming Spring. Its breath-taking there!

This is another location I adore. Its right down the street from the location above. While I love doing urban shoots, there's just something about nature that totally speaks to me. Nothing like tall grass to add beauty to a photo.

Same location as above. Its so perfectly picturesque there! I am pretty sure that I could just pull up a comfy chair and sit there and stare at this place all spring-time long.

This is called a huymmingbird moth. Had never heard of one or saw one until then!

Not many people know this, but my favorite color as a child was Orange.

One of the many peacocks that freely wander around at the Turtle Back Zoo...

This photo was taken in the "Great Mall" area of Central Park. I did a shoot there this past fall and plan to do some shoots there this spring/summer as well. The canopy trees are to die for!

Lavender Love




I don't know what it is, but I have always loved butterflies. They're just so magical.
The butterfly dance



This was taken at a local arboretum. Another fab locale for photo shoots!
Alone




And speaking of photoshoots... within the next couple of weeks I will be updating with some news on upcoming shoots. So stay tuend if you are intersted in booking with me.


Let the countdown to Spring begin!

That babe sitting in the chair in the middle of all those wildflowers is an amazing image! I just LOVE it! I wish we had meadows like that out here in Nevada.

Aw, thank you! I feel like I've come so far/learned so much (in terms of photography) since then, so when I look at that photo I kind of kick myself for all its little imperfections. Can't wait until that field blooms again so I can start shooting there again this spring/summer!

I think its a matter of people in general just all wanting a taste of what we don't have because I've seen plenty of photos on Flickr of amazing locations in Nevada that make me yearn to do a shoot out there!

Thanks again for the comment! :)
