I love finding hidden gems! I love skipping over the obvious and finding unique opportunities. Sometimes these gems can be people or business solutions but this time it was a location. Instead of doing the safe and obvious options we have done in the past we went for the risk and it paid off big time. Too often we get stuck as photographers in knowing what works and choosing the path of least resistance. We were trying to decide which garden to photograph this cute little guy in since mine wasn't in bloom yet. We could have easily gone back to the safe place we did older brother but instead tried the wild and crazy unkept yard of this little guys next door neighbor. I know many people would not have given it a second look from the street but it was a gold mine of hidden gems. I could have photographed there all day especially since this little guy is so fun to work with.
Thanks A for sharing your little piece of heaven with me, and I mean both your garden and your kids! You truly are one of the hidden gems in my life and I am lucky to have found you. Thanks for letting me create more wonderful memories of your beuatiful kids.
