These photos by Washington DC photographer Juliette Fradin just scream spring! Such a great use of light! And I absolutely LOVE the fact that the photos are of a mother with her older child! Too rarely do we see family sessions were the children are pre-teens or older. I just love it! -Sandra
the light and color in this set of images just sweeps me off my feet. the connection and tenderness of of this mother and daughter feels like something they will be able to hold on to forever. what a beautiful thing to freeze time with your baby, as she grows wings. the joy is palpable and as as real as the gorgeous spring blossoming around them.
"The Cherry Blossom Festival is something very unique in Washington DC and attracts lots of tourists! To avoid the crowds, I shot this session early in the morning as the sun rose. The scenery with all these beautiful flowers everywhere is so delicate that a session with a mother and her daughter was absolutely perfect. Relationships, especially with pre-teens, can be sometimes challenging but it was amazing to witness such a great complicity between them and to capture love and laughs along this lifestyle session. The morning light was absolutely amazing which helped a lot for the general atmosphere as well."
