Macro photo of a deep red flower at the Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago, IL
I’ve had a little more freedom the past few weeks due to my sweet new ride. Trusty and reliable fuel efficient transportation has allowed me to return to some spots I’ve neglected. You’ll remember the Garfield Park Conservatory from, well, from my last post. After having fun with my niece, I made a trip back this past weekend by myself for some quality alone time with my camera. Since I’ll be planning a wedding of my own this year (eep!), I’ve cut back on my photography schedule. I want to make sure I give my clients fantastic service, so I’m lightening the load a bit. As I mentioned in the last post, I’m totally booked up for 2012 weddings, but I still have lots of space for portraits. Anyway, back to my point. What was my point? Oh! Expect a lot more personal work to show up on the blog this year. I hope you won’t mind. I fell in love with photography wandering through greenhouses and forest preserves, and I can’t wait to share more of that work with you! Getting back to my roots has been a joy. I hope these photographs bring a little peace and color to a cold January day.

I loved loved loved the name of this plant.

Bringing camera gear into the warm, super humid conservatory from the cold, dry air outside often results in some fogged lenses until the gear comes up to temperature. While it occasionally tries my patience, sometimes I love the results. The fern photograph is a result of a slightly fogged macro lens.
