San Francisco Urban Garden

When you love something, nothing will keep you away. 

Emily and Danny were thinking of having a different photoshoot than their last few, like shoot in the city surrounded by cool architecture instead of a garden.  Their kids, Aurora and Dex, had a different plan.

They were drawn towards all flowers, fallen leaves, and wandering petals.  They collected them on large crunchy maple leaves and held them with care, so they wouldn’t get blown away.  Even in a location where 95% of their surroundings was concrete and metal, they’d find the small patch of nature and head there with great big smiles.

  1. These are amazing pictures, Annie! These are the best pictures we’ve seen of Dexter (not to take anything away from the great work you’ve done in past years, haha). Thank you for the great venue suggestion, and for the fantastic photo shoot!

    • Little Dexter was the most smiley I have ever seen him. I’m so glad he remembers me, so he didn’t need even a second to get comfortable. 🙂 I love the solo shot of him (above) because that was his special look for his mommy! ❤️ My son (when he was little) looked at me differently than anyone else, so I love that I captured this look on Dex!
