Celebrating love, laughter, and the spirit of halloween
When I was a kid, I LOVED dressing up for Halloween. The house I grew up in was located on a dirt road, in the woods, at the top of a hill, with practically no neighbors. Needless to say, there was no trick-or-treating on my street. My only chance of collecting fistfulls of teeth-rotting, insulin-spiking, nutrient deficient candies was to be invited to a friend's house. The best part was always dressing up. My mother would work for hours on end creating my costume. I helped her by asking every 2 minutes if she was done yet, just to make sure she stayed focused and motivated. My costumes ranged from fortune teller, to equestrian, to clown. So it's no surprise that I was overjoyed when today's session ended in a costume parade (of sorts).
We began the session at Croydon Creek Nature Center which sits on a 120-acre lot of land in Rockville, Maryland. I love the soft, golden light of the morning sun in autumn. It streamed through the grasses of the Croydon Creek meadow and made for the perfect portrait setting.
We walked across the massive lawn to reach the Glenview Mansion, a house built in 1926 with enough gardens, walkways, arches, and stone staircases to make it any photographer's dream.
And then the grand finale. A dinosaur skeleton, a werewolf, and the world's most adorable astronaut...
