Let’s See the Cherry Blossoms — Kelsey Gerhard


Once upon a time I lived in Washington D.C. and the annual blooming of the Cherry Blossoms was a big deal.   A serious big deal.  Just thinking about it brings me right back to growing up in Chevy Chase and driving to the see the cherry blossoms blooming every Spring. Kelsey Gerhard did a great job capturing this gorgeous show.  I  love her girls with these blossoms.  Its the softness and the color of the blossoms juxtaposed with her girls that got my heart on this shoot.

“The weather is beautiful here in the DC area today and it had me thinking of this impromptu session I did with my own girls among these pink flowers last spring.

Spring around here means cherry blossoms (!) and they are such a unique and gorgeous backdrop for photographs. My girls were just wearing some new dresses they had gotten from their grandmother (pink, patterned, and maxi – pretty much what they were into at the time). It wasn’t terribly planned, but I knew they were comfortable and confident in their fun clothes.

In DC in the spring, we are so happy to see snow of pink petals replace the real deal. I am thrilled I got to capture my daughters enjoying every minute of it. I treasure these photographs!”
