What an amazing beauty the gingko tree is! Only to be outdone this day by the beauty of this family. I always have fun with my families, but this family was a special treat. Cathryn was just filled to the brim with imagination and William loved spending time with his whole family. There was substantial effort to ensure we would be able to get the often fleeting beauty of the leaves when they change color, from green to this stunning gold color. The leaves all and create this golden blanket, perfect for playing in. Its not surprise we were not the only photographers in this spot this day.
The ginkgo tree is actually something I've loved for quite awhile. A fun fact about me, the jewelry I had hand crafted for my wedding was actually of gingko leaves. I lived in Chicago at the time and similar to New York City/Brooklyn, the trees are abundant in Chicago. Anyway, it touches my heart in a special way.
