One of the things I love the most about spring is all the cherry blossoms that are in bloom!
I had these grand plans of taking Maya to the UW Arboretum or the University of Washington campus, where the blooms are notoriously amazing!
I ended up getting to shoot a family at the UW Arboretum, but having the time for us to go…well, that wasn’t happening. SO…we went a few blocks from our house, and played amongst the many blooming trees there!
I honestly think this was the better idea. It was quick, fun, and not a big production. THAT is more Maya’s style, and honestly, I have to keep in mind what she wants most of the time.
AND, this is honestly a super long post, because I took SO many images that I love!! It all worked out for the best 🙂 This next shot is totally out of focus, but I wanted to get a picture of her FIRST MANICURE!!
She came with me and my mom for the first time and was the SWEETEST! Seriously!?? I wish the streets were lined with blooms like this ALL THE TIME! This next photo is totally out of focus, but it is SO HER!!! She always comes running so enthusiastically for a hug!! It’s getting harder and harder to document as she gets older, but….LOVE!! LOVE!!!
I almost put this as an “outtake”, because…clearly she’s going in for a big BITE! But…I love it. It’s SO HER! Love all these close ups that I got, but this next one…
