I have lived in the Washington, DC area for the past 15 years and I can only think of one other time where I traveled into the city for the Cherry Blossom Festival. When Amanda contacted me before Christmas to plan for some family portraits when her son, Dexter, would be 6 months old I knew it would make for the perfect backdrop! Little did I know that almost every other photographer that exists would also be there! Okay, so maybe I'm over exaggerating a bit, but it was CROWDED! Luckily, my clients are super laid-back and Amanda and John were no exception, along with Dex who was a total ham which made for some awesome images!
