Baltimore Maternity Photographer – Spring Cherry Blossoms

As a Baltimore maternity photographer it’s practically a given that we’d be creating spring portraits with the cherry blossoms! It’s been particularly challenging this year though since so many of the flowering trees bloomed in February, right before we were hit with the late March snowstorm that damaged so many of the spring blossoms. The end result is that we’ve been on “blossom watch” for more than eight weeks now, just waiting to find out if we’ll receive more spring color!

Fortunately we hit the sweet spot – a break in the weather so we could get outdoors. After a week of cold rain, we had a single day where everything aligned. The second wave of  blossoms were out, and the ground was dry enough, AND the temperatures were ideal. When so many elements are conspiring against us, we end up being very  grateful that we don’t have the added restrictions of only working at certain times of the day. Because we bring all our own lighting we can create portrait lighting during the times of the day when it’s convenient for our clients, not just during sunrise or sunset!

We were so happy to welcome this family back to our studio (and on location!) again. We first met this family last year during our Limited Edition Holiday Sessions  and we’re looking forward to meeting their new baby in the coming weeks as well for their newborn portrait session!
