When Annie and I chose Hermann park for her session I did not think we would be shooting inside the McGovernn Centennial Gardens. The gardens require a permit to shoot there and for good reason. A lot of money is spent to upkeep these amazing gardens so its understandable that they would require a fee. However on this particular day the gardens were empty and the security were guards gave us permission to shoot inside! I was so excited to do Annies portraits in the gardens and surrounding area and just love how these turned out.
