Often times I photograph families in Japanese parks, so when this mama wanted a family session with an urban look I was beyond excited. It is fun trying new things. Keeps it fresh for me. Instead of going in to Tokyo we kept it local and photographed in Fussa, which is just outside the gates of Yokota Air Base. Merri wanted everyday elements of Japan in her session. So we embraced all the signs and wires and bikes that we could for a real Japanese feel. I hope these photos will always remind this sweet family of their time in Japan.
