Cherry Blossom Minis

Sorry, these are now sold out!

They're BACK for the 4th 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 will send you a Style Guide that you can look through and think about what kinds of outfits you want to wear, with tips for everyone. And I'm always here if you want help - send me a pic of your options, and I'll give you my professional input!

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

We have two three peak bloom predictions: National Park Service predicts between March 22 and 25, the Capital Weather Gang predicts (updated) March 19-23, and NBC Storm Team4 predicts March 15-20. I also have my own experience from years of offering these mini sessions. I think we'll get most trees popping early, and I worry about a cold snap coming later in March

"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."
