I have long wanted a kimono. For some reason, I just never got around to it. Once I got this beautiful baby in and saw how amazing it was, I knew I wanted to shoot it in a Japanese garden. The lush greens and tranquility would not only be a great escape for my everyday LA City life, but also a great backdrop. On an added bonus, Scott and I could make a little date day out of it. I had already gone to the Huntington Library, so I did a little Google research and found the Descanso Gardens. Once a family estate, it has now been turned into a botanical garden for all to enjoy. Descanso means "place of rest" in Spanish, and by all accounts it was just that. Due to the atrocious lack of ran LA has been receiving, there are many dry patches and brown seems to have creeped in where it was once a flourishing green. Despite this, Descanso provides a brief escape from the hustle and bustle from the surrounding metropolis.
