cherry blossoms

Cherry blossoms...of course

I've been feeling obligated to go down to the tidal basin to shoot the cherry blossoms this Spring. This morning I rode my bike down to the basin (thankfully I work near by!) at sunrise, and snapped some photos. My favorite shot is of the birdie, getting his [early worm] breakfast. The blossoms didn't have the best showing this year because of the late cold front DC got, but a good percentage of them held up. 

Cherry Blossoms and Babies

I had the pleasure of taking pictures of Amber and Aaron in a maternity shoot during the cherry blossom peak. Amber is pregnant with her first baby! The weather was in our favor and fortunately for us there weren't too many middle school field trips out that night smile emoticon One of my favorite parts of shooting is meeting new people, and meeting Amber and Aaron was no exception. Their little one on the way is a lucky peanut!
