Blossoms are one of the reasons I just love spring! I don’t know why blossoms are so fascinating to me, but when I think of blossoms, I think of my youth. I was born and raised in the Dutch polder around Asperen, which is part of Holland’s Betuwe region, renowned for its many orchards and fruit shops. During spring time the area is covered under a beautiful white/pink blanket.
Being surrounded by blossoms almost makes me feel like escaping into a fairy tale. Fragility, beauty, hope, romance, optimism, courage: those first gallant clusters of cupped delicate petals symbolize everything that is good in the world.
And of course, blossoms are the perfect decor for beautiful (dreamy) photo shootings. So, my sweet boyfriend and husband-to-be and I could resist taking some pictures in the middle of the beautiful Dutch pear blossoms. I am thrilled to show off the results. You can also find the pictures on my Facebook page.
