evening picnic in apple tree garden

Malminkartanon Omenatarha, Helsinki

Before our family shoot, the trees had already dropped their beautiful white flowers. During the apple tree blooming season, the garden is usually full of people, just admiring and taking photos of all the beauty dozens of apple trees create.

I think we were actually lucky since the garden was practically empty during our shoot and we got the most magical evening light.

I loved how relaxed the family was and the kids barely noticed that I was there.

There wasn't a shortage of running, jumping and exploring, but that's all part of it all and I think it's super important to let the kids be kids during a shoot because then you can really capture their true personality.
