After a couple months of planning, the execution worked out perfectly. Mike reached out to me beforehand to discuss his vision. His lucky lady, Alex, wanted the cherry blossoms, and we delivered. However, it took some luck and precise timing to make these beautiful shots happen. Springtime in Washington DC has emerged slowly this year. It was only a few days before their arrival that the cherry blossoms started to bloom. Luckily, warmer temperatures in the days leading up to the shoot accelerated the timing of the peak bloom. I was thrilled that spring arrived just in time to provide a beautiful backdrop for Mike and Alex’s special moment.
I’m just getting back into the groove of blogging. I’ll start this year off with last months xmas baby shoot. I photographed Natalia shortly after she was born at my home studio earlier last year and had a pleasure documenting her at such a special time during the holidays. As someone who doesn’t have any kids at the moment, it’s really special to get a backseat into some peoples lives as they being their next chapters in life as parents. On a special note, this was my first shoot using the new mirrorless Nikon S7. I’m loving the results so far. Vibrant colors and unique sharpness. I hope to share more photos from the new camera in the near future. Enjoy!
