I will bring some models and reflectors to practice portrait photography. One of the models is seven months pregnant so you can practice for a maternity shoot if interested.

We can stop and go as often as you’d like; stay in groups or go solo. There’s so much to see and photograph! We can stroll along the Great Lawn, relax at Mirror Lake, wander through the Gazebo Garden and discover the peacefulness of the Asian-American Garden.
