April 1, 2020
I love spring! It’s so exciting to watch everything start to come back to life after winter. And the fact that it’s warming up makes photoshoots so much fun! There is a lot of change that happens in April – June as we transition from snow-melt season to spring blossoms, so not all of the locations start looking good right away. So I’m going to list what I recommend for each section of spring!
- April 1 – 30 : Cress Creek, Beaver Dick Park, BYU-Idaho Gardens
- April 30 – May 15 : All of the above + St. Anthony Sand Dunes, and Egin Lake
- May 15 – June 1 : All of the above + BYU-Idaho Apple Orchard, Eagle Park, and Mesa Falls
- June 1 – 20: All of the above + Kelly Canyon
30 minutes out of Rexburg, 10-15 minute hike. Features lots of sage brush, a gorgeous overlook, and the river. Looks awesome year round!
