Purple, white, pink, yellow, and green! There are signs of the arrival of spring everywhere. After experiencing over 20 inches of snow just a few weeks ago, going outside now is an extremely beautiful sight. The air is enormously fragrant with trees and flowering blooming.
Towards the end of last week, the Cherry Blossoms reached peak bloom. It was the perfect weekend to go out and capture portraits. While the masses tend to make there way to the Tidal Basin in the Nation's Capital, my family decided to travel to Loudoun County. WOW...the beauty! The roadsides are lined with wild flowers and the trees blooming with exquisite trees with green and white pedals.
Since the weather is much milder and the grass and trees are greener, I had to get outside and capture my growing sons in the beautiful warm weather. Of course, they were happy to get outside and run freely. We spent the day capturing our family fun, enjoying one another's company, and most importantly, making memories.
Have you scheduled your spring portraits yet? Well why not...the temperatures are warming up and the flowers are starting to bloom.
This is the perfect opportunity to capture your family's glow with the earth's new beautiful colors. Capture your son in his suit and your gorgeous daughter in her spring dress. Our studio is even able to prepare your home with framed portrait work to adore your home's walls.
Spring portraits are a gift that makes everyone smile.
It's hard to believe it's been a year already; but it has! I meet this handsome young pilot, Aiden, a year ago to capture him as a newborn. He was adorable and now he's walking and starting to say his first words.
His Mom mentioned he loved playing with Airplanes, so we wanted to capture him as a young airplane pilot in training. When we put on the hat, he loved it. Can you tell?
Happy First Birthday Aiden!
Spring must be around the corner. The National Park Service, based in Washington D.C., has revealed dates for the full peak of the blossoms

It's a great opportunity to capture the family with beautiful spring colors and the blossoms as a nice backdrop. The Tidal Basin is a beautiful location to capture those wonderful spring family portraits.
