Cherry Blossom Minis

They're BACK for the 5th year! I love, love, love the cherry blossoms around the Tidal Basin in DC. These mini sessions are opportunities to get quick, beautiful snaps of you and your family with the cherry blooms as simply the best backdrop.

Life can be hectic. Let me take some of the burden off you while getting fun, professional portraits: the date and location is already taken care of. You pick the time. That's it!

"I loved the mini session, it was the perfect length for my kids’ attention spans."

We have two peak bloom predictions as of 2/29: the National Park Service predicts between March 23 and 26, and the Capital Weather Gang predicts March 19-23. Both of these fall on the "early" side but it's been a warmer winter. Peak bloom means when 70% of the Yoshino cherry blossoms are open, and after peak bloom the blossoms can get much more susceptible to rough weather, which is why I host minis on the earlier weekend day, vs hoping for them to keep the week after.

"Very happy with the experience and gallery! We worked with Sarah previously and had such a great experience - she is adept at catching those wonderful shots that just capture the essence of your relationship. The cherry blossom mini session was such an awesome way to do some family shots that felt like less pressure."
