Washington DC Cherry Blossom Photo Session
If there’s one thing I love about the Washington DC area it’s cherry blossom season. During spring cherry blossoms can be found all over Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia. For about a 2 week period from mid-March to mid-April Washington DC sheds its dreary gray winter coat and comes alive with a sea of pink blooms.
So of course every spring I have to drag my toddler out for some Washington DC cherry blossom photos.
Now for these Washington DC cherry blossom photos I go all out for her, like I said I’m OBSESSED!! She’s got a ton of princess dresses and props for the occasion. I’ve taken her to all of my favorite cherry blossom locations in Maryland and DC.
The best part about spring is that the days are just starting to get long and I can get her to the locations at the perfect item for those golden hours.
Sometimes I even drag my tripod with me and take a few mommy daughter selfies (check out my Instagram if you want to see those). Don’t ask me why, but she’s so much more cooperative and susceptible to bribery when daddy is not around.
This year I’ve got big plans for her, I might actually take her to see the cherry blossoms around the Tidal Basin, which I haven’t done since she was about 1. On that outing we were definitely too late for cherry blossom season, having just gotten back from Bangkok, and were greeted with mostly green trees.
I’m currently thinking of what to bribe her with as I type this. Gummy bears and M&Ms are usually my go to. Sometimes though I like to get those surprise toys that you buy from vending machines.
If you are planning a trip to Washington DC to see cherry blossoms, I have a guide for some of my favorite photo spots here.
