Tokyo Portrait Photographer | Penton Family Session

The Penton Family session had a lot of firsts for me as a photographer. First time photographing “older”  sister siblings, so much fun by the way!!! First time shooting family portraits in the city of Tokyo, all my other city session client’s have been couples. And first time dragging my shutter to capture motion, which you can see in the train picture below. Stepping out of my comfort zone was way worth it in my opinion.  These are some of my favorite images to date, the lovely subjects being the main reason that is so. I love being able to see the dynamics of this family in their photos. We had a blast during their shoot and I think it shows. What do you think?

Below: This is the photo I mentioned where I dragged the shutter speed. No tripod used. Just rested my elbow on me knee and head my breathe while snapping this.

Meg Martin - That picture of this family standing in some sunlight near the shibuya crossing should win awards… it’s amazing! I keep going back to it… it’s a total OMG picture!!!! They are all amazing… but that one definitely took my breath away! Love your pictures, Renee!

Two Down by the River

I am so in love with photographing in Japan. Just so many beautiful places to take pictures. Last weekend we headed to the river with the goal of taking photos of my daughter who just recently turned two. This is such a fun age and she is seriously so full of personality, however I am finding it hard to capture her personality on film. The girl seriously runs the other direction when I point my camera at her. And getting her to smile naturally, forget about it. So we went for a more natural/lifestyle approach and I like how they turned out.

Oh…and did you notice the new look on the blog??? It’s still a work in progress, but I am excited about the direction it is going. What do you think?

Abbey - This is so perfect! Can’t wait to see our session up here on your cute new blog!

Tokyo Portrait Photographer | Kallie & Rick

I am so in love with this city session! I feel so honored to be able to have Tokyo, Japan as a backdrop for portrait sessions. And even more honored to have such amazing support and clients.  I really can’t believe this is my life and this is where God has taken my business. I feel blessed beyond measure. Kallie and Rick were fabulous to work with. We actually started our photo shoot in Shibuya, the busiest intersection in the world. All eyes were on these two while we were shooting, but they just kept posing like champs. We ended their session at one of their favorite diners in the city. I love how we were able to incorporate the city and also shoot at a location that has personal significance for them. AND BONUS…Kallie convinced her man to wear his blues!!! What a fun why to capture their military tour here in Japan.

Kallie and Rick wanted to recreate the iconic image of The Kissing Sailor (http://www I love that they had a unique idea and were so committed to making it happen. Below are two different options. Which one is your favorite?

I think this is by far one of my favorite pictures ever!!! Can you see the Tokyo Sky Tree?

Now for some wall display samples. Love helping my client’s design art for their home!

Carissa (http://www NULL.hookedonthehowards - I love the pictures in the diner! So old school and classic! The second one on the left that’s a little far off with the open sign in it is probably my favorite!

Kate & Tdub’s City Session | Tokyo Portrait Photographer

I feel very honored to have had the opportunity to photograph these two. To be completely honest I was a little nervous because Kate is not just the average client. She is a photographer too (http://katechapmanphotography NULL.wordpress And I know how it feels to be a photographer and really want great images of yourself with your loved ones.  Photographers spend so much time and energy trying to capture awesome memories for our clients and we rarely have the chance to be on the other side of the lens. Kate mentioned that they had not had photos taken since their wedding day four years ago. This is why I was nervous. I really wanted to give these two amazing images nestled in the heart of the city of Tokyo that would reflected their personalities and sweet relationship.

I also want to give a BIG shout out to these two for successfully completing a 365!!! For you nonmilitary folks a 365 is a year long deployment. I thank you both for your sacrifice and pray that God will bless you both for your service.
