Spring in Traverse City Michigan is almost magical, the snow melts away unfolding the pressed grass from a long weight of winter snow. Traverse City is nestled in the pinky of our mitten state, the conditions give way to near perfect growing weather for cherries. A lot of our local farmers depend on a good harvest. Every spring the orchards open their blossoms to a beautiful array of white blooms. They look like giant cotton balls on our trees. They are simply beautiful. This is one of my favorite times in Northern Michigan. It is a sign of a new beginning and new life for our city. That is one big reason I love to have my maternity and newborn sessions in the orchards of Traverse City. The symbolism of new life beginning is just gorgeous to me. This stunning Momma rocked her session last spring. She is so beautiful inside and out!
