Today I am ending my personal post streak on my blog with the booming Tidal Basin and Cherry Blossom posts I’ve had going for the last few weeks, in celebration of the coming Spring season. As a mother I can not tell you how important it has been for me to set aside the time and money it takes to have professional family photographs taken. I have always valued great photographs, and wanted to be in the photos with my family, actively engaging and not just behind the camera. We do that on a daily basis with our iPhones anyway! You do not truly realize how important these images are until time has passed you by and you are wondering where the time went… and then you can’t believe that was YOU only a few years ago either.
About this time last year (April 2014) our birth photographer, Sarah Culver, captured precious memories of our little family. Olivia had just turned 1 year old, and we were celebrating our wedding anniversary as well that month.
We chose to have our session at sunrise at the Tidal Basin during peak Cherry Blossom season because… well.. I love flowers. This place is a slice of heaven for a person like me, and is just so surreal with all the flower filled trees and petals drifting to the floor creating this lovely mosaic of pink on the ground. It’s also very iconic to Washington, DC and I wanted to have some clear documentation of location at this point in our lives together since my husband is in the military and relocation is in the future.
