The peach orchards in Fort Mill South Carolina are a sight to see every Spring. They bloom in April for about two weeks with the most beautiful shockingly pink flowers. We never know exactly when the blooms will reach their peak so everyone is stalking the orchards come April every year! This year was a little out of the ordinary… we had unseasonably warm weather at the beginning of the month, which led to the trees blooming about two weeks earlier than they’ve ever bloomed. Then, a few days later the temperatures plummeted and we got SNOW. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Carolinas!
The Ockers family has been a client/friend of mine since they were pregnant with their oldest son. Now they have three gorgeous kiddos, and we finally were able to venture out into the orchards for their daughter’s milestone session. The snow and freezing temps did alter the beautiful pink blooms quite a bit, but there was a bit of pink left and we were determined to make this happen. We had a wonderful session despite mother nature’s attempts, and captured some really special images that Mom loved.
