It's Summer here in Melbourne and with that the Jacaranda trees bloom with their gorgeous purple petals. I come up with ideas that I would love to photograph, especially during the holidays. The search for a Jacaranda tree with low branches began! Driving around I spotted the most beautiful tree in the front yard of a house that just happened to have the owner out front for me to ask him if I could possibly photograph his tree. He began to tell me the local history and also found out he knew of my father, talk about a small world!
A couple of days later (after the rain had bucketed down), I was a little concerned that the petals would have been washed away but it was still standing strong. Here's a preview of adorable Audrey, the toddler with the cutest ponytails!
