If you’re from the general Seattle area, chances are good that you’ve heard of the Tulip Festival in Mt. Vernon, and the Roozengaarde display garden. Mike and I have managed to go up to the festival every year since we bought our house in Marysville – I even went a couple weeks after having my gallbladder removed while toting around a two-month old. Yup, I’m dedicated to gawking at flowers. This year, the nice weather aligned perfectly to get some nice sunshine on the weekend. Since my family was coming up anyway so I could do my step-brother’s senior photos, we decided to go up north on Sunday and introduce more of my family to the craziness that is Mt. Vernon on a sunny spring day.
This weekend my family came up so that I could take my step-brother’s senior photos. It’s not every session where I get to go help shop for the clothes that they’ll be wearing while I photograph them, so this weekend was a little extra fun. Here’s some of my favorites from the afternoon out at Jenning’s Park. BONUS: I even got him to pose for me the next day while we were out at the tulip fields in Mt. Vernon, and surprised his mom! Woot!
