Cherry Blossom Minis | Northern Virginia Family Photographer


As a Northern Virginia Family Photographer I LOVE cherry blossom trees! Like love them so much we’ve been planting 2 trees a year along our driveway. They are combination birthday and Mother’s Day presents for me! Of course they are tiny little trees right now but hopefully, by the time the boys graduate high school, they will be AMAZING!


Till then I have my very own super secret location here in Fredericksburg where I do cherry blossom mini sessions for past clients and those that sign up for my mini session list! If you are ever interested in having a mini session with me I suggest signing up for that list so you’ll be the first to know all the details about my next event!

I pulled this cherry blossom mini session together super quick as we were facing possible bad weather and I didn’t want to lose the blooms! I was so excited to see some of my favorite past clients and marvel at how big all the kiddos are getting! The kids loved playing with the blossoms and we even were able to make it rain petals on them which brought out the biggest smiles.

If you have been anywhere on my website then you know how much I love photographing my couples and families as they move through different chapters in their lives. Being able to watch their kids grow up in front of my camera is a great joy of mine! It’s why my favorite hashtag is #photographerforlife!
