With Spring upon us now and the warm weather already here, we were fortunate enough to make it out of East End and down to Hot Springs for an impromptu shoot in the middle of the tulips in Hot Springs. If none of you have ever been to the gardens there, you really should take advantage of them in March. They have literally thousands of tulips in varying bands of color all along the paths.
So after we did a little bit of wandering and made our way out to the tulips, we found a few great patches to setup and snap off a couple of shots. Meet G. She's a pretty interesting girl, though at times it was difficult to get her to give us a natural smile rather than a big "cheesy" one.
And here's G along with the rest of her "tribe"....nice bunch of girls, though I do feel for their father in a few years. Boy is he in for it.....and I digress. Anyway, Mom here wanted some pictures of all of her girls for the office. Since her birthday was right around the corner and you can't beat pictures in a setting full of tulips, it seemed like a perfect fit and an opportunity to get outside.
After a nearly disastrous incident involving a splinter followed by some emergency "surgery" (just goes to show a pocketknife is always handy), we narrowly avoided calling off the whole event and managed to get some wonderful pictures of Em, here, perched on some rocks among the tulips.
See, if you didn't know it, you wouldn't even be able to tell there had been such an epic catastrophe only a few minutes before this shot was snapped....
And, finally, there's little miss spunk. Though she seemed to be rather quiet on this particular occasion, you can rest assured just from looking at her she's sure to get into whatever she can if the mood strikes her...
All in all, it was a great day for photos, and a fun experience for everyone involved. If you haven't ever been to see the tulips, perhaps it's time you take a break and make some time to get down there to check them out. It's a relaxing way to spend an afternoon, but you may want to hurry. The blooms won't last long once the heat really picks up.
And did I mention I really feel for the Dad? It must be tough to be an island of testosterone surrounded by all of these women, but just a few minutes with them and you can really tell despite all of the crazy, mixed-up madness, they are truly a very solid, happy family.
Thanks for stopping by. We'll be posting more soon, and while you're here, feel free to take a look around or drop us a line or two.
