Awe, the beauty of spring is such a wonderful thing. We meet on an early Saturday morning in Washington D.C. for their spring portrait sessions with the Cherry Blossoms. The cherry blossoms are what Washington D.C. is known for during the spring. We had just seen each other a few weeks ago for a promotion ceremony, so it was nice catching up to see what they been doing since we last saw each other.
We met at Hains Point for their session to avoid the crowds of the Tidal Basin. We had such a wonderful time, especially the children. I purchased and use Apple Boxes to create different height perspectives for families when I photograph them. The kids had a great time playing with my Apple Boxes. I never thought the boxes would be such a hit for the kids and how they just loved playing with them. By the time we finished their portrait session, I told the parents they just may have to purchase their own set.
What a beautiful family! As soon as I saw this portrait, I knew it was going to be their favorite. I simply adore this family portrait of them.
If you have an opportunity to visit Washington D.C. during spring, I hope you're able to (highly recommend) take a family portrait with the Cherry Blossoms. This is just a glimpse of the beauty you'll see.
