Family Portraits ~ Vacation to DC

To keep up with their tradition in LA, we held a mini family portrait session down by the monuments to capture their family vacation here - and Vivian’s two missing front teeth!

DC Cherry Blossom Couple's Portraits

Donal and Fernanda are visiting DC from Ireland! Our session almost got rained out, but the sky turned a beautiful shade of blue just in time for them to dance and giggle their way around the cherry blossom trees. We even saw a precious mama duck with her ducklings.

Surprise Proposal at the Cherry Blossom Festival

On the edge of the Tidal Basin, Ryan proposed to Rachel this week during DC’s cherry blossom festival. They spent the rest of the afternoon strolling among the trees, getting swept away by floating blossoms, and celebrating their engagement. Congratulations!

Magical Cherry Blossom Maternity Session at Sunrise

We met at the Jefferson Memorial at 6am, the night sky just starting to turn pink with the first rays of cherry blossom sunlight. The Tidal Basin was still and glassy, perfectly reflecting the deep blue night sky. A magical morning for celebrating new life. Congratulations you two!

Spring is just around the corner in our nation’s capital! The cherry blossoms will soon bloom around the magnificent Tidal Basin.
Here’s a shot of the Jefferson Memorial during last year’s peak bloom.
