Springtime and cherry blossoms are my favorite time of the year. I have been photographing my daughter with the cherry blossoms since she was born.
This spring we found a beautiful spot in Central Park where several cherry trees created a beautiful, enchanted pink haven. Emily had a lovely time collecting the pink petals from the ground, walking barefoot on a soft pink carpet made of petals and dancing, twirling among the cherry trees.
Cherry blossom festivals or as the Japanese call them Sakura festivals are popular in New York City and around the world. I have visited the Brooklyn Botanic Garden many times in the past to enjoy the cherry blossom season.
Many cherry trees have a short window of time when they are in full bloom and I am happy I was able to enjoy them this year at their peak in Central Park, New York City.
