Savor the Spring Season with Sakura Blossom Portraits

The Sakura Garden Bloesempark in Amsterdamse Bos makes for a stunning backdrop for timeless beautiful imagery of Couples & Families!

While it can seem like overnight the gorgeous Sakura Blossoms begin to bloom, the delicate blossoms only last for a week or two each year so having your photos taken underneath them is pure magic! Read on to learn more about these special Portrait Sessions and how to book yours!

Dates are subject to slight change

It's always difficult to predict when the beautiful delicate cherry blossoms will bloom especially when were planning a session around them, but it's always worth the wait and a little flexibility. Thankfully the KersenBloesem Park or Sakura Orchard is located in my neighborhood so I will be closely monitoring them and working together with my clients.


Because the full Bloom period is almost impossible to predict further than 10 days in advance, when your reserve your session we will put a rough day on my calendar but could possibly change due to the seasonal nature of the sessions as well as bad weather. 

There are 3 stages to the bloom period: The beginning just as the trees are beginning to blossom, when the trees are in full white Bloom, and as the petals began to fall off and turn more pinkish.

Sessions are held early in the morning to avoid crowds both for safety measures regarding Corona Virus and to reduce the ammount of visitors in the background of images. For this reason sessions are limited. If there are no available session times that work for you, feel free to reach out and get added to a waitlist in the event that a spot opens up.

Little Love Notes

What my Clients Say

Melody remained calm and reassuring even though our family of 5 created utter chaos. Despite our one year old's refusal to participate, everything went really well and she some how still managed to get beautiful images of all of us!

- N. Caro

Choosing Melody to photograph me and with my daughter was the best decision ever. Besides being a fantastic photographer, Melody is a joy to work with. She is friendly and lovely to talk to. Very good communication throughout the whole process. I highly recommend her and for sure I will work with her again.

Here's Another Text Section

Text sections are universally useful on a sales page. You can re-use them again and again whenever you need to explain something in more detail, add some storytelling elements or highlight important features and benefits of your offer.

Just make sure to avoid the "wall of text" look that you get when you have a lot of uninterrupted, unformatted text. Break things up with headings, images, dividers etc.
