“Come to my garden,
Nestled in the hills.
There I’ll keep you safe beside me.

Come to my garden.
Rest there in my arms.
There I’ll see you
Safely grown and on your way.

Stay there in the garden,
Where love grows free and wild.
Come to my garden. “

–The Secret Garden (musical)–

There is something so hauntingly beautiful about that song.  My younger sister and I used to sing this around the house all the time when we were growing up, so of course, this is what has come to mind as I have been going through and editing these photos.  It has already been a week since I began editing, and I still have the song stuck in my head – which I love!!

I am so so grateful for the sun finally coming out in Ohio.  We have had so much rain and so many cloudy days, I couldn’t believe we didn’t have to reschedule this session.  It was an absolutely perfect evening in the most beautiful setting – their backyard!  The love between everyone was radiant and is so evident in their photos.  I truly loved taking each picture and getting to know this family better!  This session fills me with so much joy and I hope they do the same for you as well!
