Shichi-Go-San in Tokyo

This session was six months in the making. Jun (one of my favorite people in Tokyo) asked me in the spring if I could shoot a family session for the very special 7-5-3 event that takes place in Japan. As soon as she said kimonos were going to be involved, I was excited. To say it was an honor that they chose me is an understatement. I feel so fortunate that she and her family trusted me to document this very important time and am so grateful for the opportunity.

The session couldn't have gone any more beautifully. The girls were gorgeous, the boys were handsome. And the love within this family was abundant...

They showed me a fun children's "game" I hadn't seen before. Kind of like a wishbone game with pine needles. Neato!

Jun, I cannot thank you enough for being kind enough to invite me to spend an afternoon with your beautiful family! I enjoyed every minute of it, including the lovely tea in the beautiful room! I am so fortunate that I met you last year and even more happy that we've stayed in touch. I truly hope you love the photos. I can feel the love amongst your family just by looking through them.

Family Love: Preview

It's been a while since I've updated my blog. 2012 has been quite good to me which means I have been busy (but in a good way)! I have lots of catching up to do with sessions from the past few months but yesterday's Tokyo session was too cute to not post a preview.

Happy last few days of 2012!
