The Dodge Mansion, otherwise known as Meadow Brook Hall, is an incredible site. Built in the early century this tudor style mansion will leave you in aww. I remember visiting as a child during Christmas, each room decorated more beautifully than the last. There are secret passage ways and secret rooms that would draw even the most skeptical kids attention. What is even more wonderful than the house itself?
The grounds; gardens, fountains, benches, a gazebo, bridges, sprawling landscapes. There is even a miniature house build for the girl of the mansion decades ago, complete with electricity and running water! Can you say spoiled! It was the most perfect place for a photo shoot I have found yet! I could not even get Ava in all the incredible locations to shoot everything I would have liked. I cannot wait to go back! In Ava fashion she was a busy body running my mom and I everywhere and me snapping and attempting to collect a handful of decent pictures. I do not know what it is but shooting your own kid is HARD! Of course, with Ava as the subject there are very few bad pics she is just too cute!
You have to check out the flickr account these are some of my favorites!
I like this last picture so much I even made and exception and used a color photo for my blog banner!!
