The sun is are the flowers

...But sometimes, so are the clouds. This is Washington after all and if us photographers could predict Spring weather in this part of the world, we'd have the golden ticket. We do have another grand photo op this time of the year and based on the location we help you pick, you can see yourself standing amongst some of the most beautiful blooms in the world. This is no exaggeration.

You can take your pick from the cherry blossoms to the tulip fields, the tall magnolia trees, camelias or even the ferns. Everything comes alive in April and May. There is no shortage of beauty for you to feature in your family's photos.

dress in layers

The weather can go from warm to cool to cold so preparing with a light sweater or jacket is a good idea. I usually recommend carrying one large rugged backpack with jackets, snacks and water (it should be okay for you to put this pack on the ground).

wear light colors

The flowers are going to be vibrant, so it would be best if you can let them do their thing while you do yours. I recommend neutrals or pastel versions of colors. If you need tips on the best palette, I send over a document giving you advice on what to wear. Pinterest is another great option to look for inspiration. Just look up "Spring family photoshoots" and see what comes up.
