Beneath the cherry blossoms


So this was kinda a last minute shoot. Since it's cherry blossom season and I've been seeing a lot of stunning portraits from fellow photographers, I wanted to try shooting at some cherry blossom trees as well. My sister does videography and we frequently shoot together posted her amazing video of this shoot on Youtube. Check it out down below!

The Model

We asked the lovely Rosita for the shoot because it's been a while since I last did a shoot with her, and my sister hadn't done a shoot with her yet.  

The Location

Another shoot at Thor Park! During the week I past by the park and saw a couple of cherry blossom trees had bloom. There were 3 trees with pink cherry blossoms but one also had some white cherry blossoms.

The Shoot

It wasn't a very long shoot because I only really wanted to shoot at the cherry blossom trees. I used my 40mm lens for a couple of shots, but mostly I used my sister's 85mm 1.8 lens. I really need to buy one as well. The bokeh is just amazing and I love me some bokeh! Near the end I took a couple of shots of Rosita laying on the ground with some cherry blossoms in her hair. Fun fact: Rosita was actually wearing a blue top, but I changed it in post because the purple color matched better with the cherry blossoms :)

My Gear

Canon Eos 6D
85mm 1.8 + 40mm 2.8
Lightroom + Photoshop for editing

Thanks for reading, enjoy the photos and don't forget to check out the video at the end!
