As a DC family photographer, I have spent many spring months over the years searching the area for the best places to take family photos during cherry blossom season. What I’ve come to discover is that our are is full of so many different types of blooming trees! You always hear about cherry blossoms, especially in the DC area, but magnolia, apple, and peach blossoms are all just as magical. Today I am going to share some images of my favorite locations to capture family photos during the spring months 🙂
My Super Secret Magnolia Garden
Do you love beautiful light? Then this spot is just for you! Located in Bethesda, a MD suburb right outside of DC, there is a little patch of land where the sun sets just right and lights up the prettiest magnolia trees you’ve ever seen. These trees typically blooms around the beginning of April, so if your family is interested in a sunny, pink blossom session, make sure to get on my calendar by March in order to schedule your session during peak bloom.
Is a stone walled garden surrounded by cotton candy pink trees more your style? Allow me to introduce you to the Glenview Mansion! This Rockville, MD property has rows and rows of beautiful trees that typically bloom around mid-May. The perfect storybook location for your family photo session.
This location is definitely a little bit of a hike…but if your family is up for an adventure this spot is totally worth it! Rows and rows of beautiful blooming trees make the perfect backdrop for your spring photos. I especially love this spot because we can choose between white blossoms or pink blossoms. Sometimes it seems like pink blossoms get all the attention in the spring, but white blossoms are definitely my personal favorite 🙂
Does your street have tree lined roads that bloom in the spring? Maybe a little park on your block that has that perfect tree? If you’ve followed me for a while, you know how much I love in-home family sessions. And who’s to say we can’t take your in-home session outdoors? 🙂
