Elizabeth Park in Hartford, CT is the oldest municipally operated rose garden in the country. It makes for a great place to shoot. I have shot there several times with CONNetic Dance
The roses come into full bloom at the start of summer, so I set up a shoot with one of my belly dancing models Lisa, AKA Carrara Nour. As a professional dancer, Lisa collects belly dance costumes like photographers collect equipment. And she had just acquired some new ones and was ready to do a shoot.
