Butterflies + Kids

The annual butterfly show at the Krohn Conservatory opened this past weekend!  This year’s theme is not about a particular region, but from all over the globe.

Saturday was their grand opening and to celebrate, they invited people/kids to wear their butterfly wings for a quick mini-shoot.  I was invited by another local photographer to help out for the first 2 hours of coverage.  Saturday’s forecast was less than ideal: lower 50s for the high, mixed with rain.  It was beautiful! (please catch the sarcasm there)

We photographed outdoors, under a white canopy, just out of the rain’s reach.  In total I photographed 15 winged children.

I take my son to the show every year and highly recommend.  If you can swing it, definitely go on a weekday.  It is packed regardless; but packed to capacity on the weekends.
