This Grotto family photography session was a new one for me, and a lot of fun! I hadn’t been there before–it’s got a little system of trails at the top of the big hill, with all kinds of plant life, statues, fountains, ponds, and more. It’s lovely and very calm among the tall trees. It had been a rainy week, so we were a little nervous. Luckily, the rain held out until the end of our session!

This was a very stylish family–I loved little E’s fedora! He had a great time exploring and playing, especially when we came across the labyrinth. He had a *blast* running in circles around that. 🙂 I love how little kids play with such simple hearts. E’s mom brought the Max costume that she had handmade, so we could do a few photos of E in it. Oh my goodness, it was too, too adorable!
