Spring will be here officially on Saturday, but I’m already seeing its unveiling – grass transformed from brown to green; buds on the trees ready to burst; early spring flowers in bloom. As rain soon will give way to glorious weather, I wanted to share three location ideas perfect for spring photos.
“The first blooms of spring always make my heart sing.”S Brown
Shaw Nature Reserve
Spring blooms will soon burst and between March and April, the daffodils around Pinetum Lake bring a blanket of lovely yellow. The reserve hosts a variety of gardens and trails that boast beautiful foliage year-round. You could spend countless hours here capturing beautiful moments with your family.
“Spring won’t let me stay in this house any longer! I must get out and breathe the air deeply again.”Gustav Mahler
Since last year, front step (or front porch) sessions have become quite popular. I actually did a handful of these fun, social distanced sessions last year. As people tackled home renovations this past year, it often included landscaping. Showcasing not only your family but your yard in a photo is a win win!
“A little flower that blooms in May. A lovely sunset at the end of a day. Someone helpingSam Cooke
a stranger along the way. That’s heaven to me.”
Laumeier Sculpture Park
This internationally recognized sculpture park has been a favorite place for me to take photos during the upcoming season. It boasts a lovely field, two impressive buildings and lovely blooms. This year, I’m excited to be hosting my spring/Mommy-and-me sessions here on Saturday, May 1. (Want to be the first to learn about details? Drop your email for me here.)
