As I sit here writing, it is pouring rain outside as our monsoon season begins. The rising humidity has reached its peak and now is getting an injection from the downpour that opened up a few hours ago. My balcony is ankle deep in water and I feel a longing for the nicer times of the year. So, today we’ll journey back to spring and meet the Wiesner family.
Taylor, Jeremy, and their son Parker were here during some of the most pleasant days we’ve had all year. It wasn’t too cool or too hot and the air was clear. One such day, we headed out to Changgyeong-gung together to get some family pictures to remember their time here.
Parker was all giggles and energy for our whole session. His affectionate and fun-loving personality shone through on and off camera. So, we had no troubles getting quite a few different locations into our short session.
We started in the beautiful spring grass. Seoul really comes alive for a few weeks from the end of April to the middle of May, and it seemed like a waste not to spend a few moments in the garden area of the palace while it was so beautiful.
Then we headed over to make use of the gorgeous traditional architecture. Changgyeong-gung differs from the other of Seoul’s palaces in that, for the most part, the paint is left to its own devices. Whereas Gyeongbok-gung, Changdeok-gung, and Deoksu-gung get a regular touch up, Changgyeong-gung still has some peeling paint and faded colours that give it a much more endearing feel. Coupled with the gorgeous light of late spring, we made some beautiful images on this afternoon.
Are you visiting Seoul? Please do get in touch to book your own family session while you’re here. In the meantime, please enjoy the images!
