Summer is just around the corner, you can almost taste it. Let me take you back to Spring for the moment. One bright joy that comes out of Spring is the explosion of colors everywhere, especially here, in Canberra. The beautiful colours of pink and white of cherry blossoms that are sporadically spruced up around Canberra can easily lift your spirit up, and make you happy and joyful. If you do not suffer from hay fever, spring easily can be one of the best and most beautiful season here.
These portraits were taken at the beginning of Spring. Ideally, if cherry blossoms is what you are after as a backdrop of your outdoor portrait, it would even be worth it to brave the cold at the last two weeks of winter. Some beautiful blossoms have been known to pop out when we Canberrans are still bundled in our warm jackets at the end of our winter hibernation. Once they popped out we have only 3 – 4 weeks to enjoy their vibrant colours before they change into not-so-exciting green foliage.
These two families were just so lovely to photograph. Small moments make special images, as you can see in some of the images above. I love to capture those moments. The lovely colour backdrop certainly didn’t hurt.
