Every November in Japan families celebrate Shich-Go-San 七五三 (literally meaning ‘7-5-3’). This is a traditional rite of passage for children ages seven, five, and three. It is common to see little girls dressed in kimonos and boys in haori jackets and hakama pants at their local shrines. This session was to celebrate sweet Sophie (age 3). Many members of her family joined us at this lovely restaurant/tea gardern for her special day.
This family has become very dear to my heart during my time in Japan. There first session with me in 2013 is one of my favorite sessions I have ever done. They are just so easy to work with and fun to be around. I am very thankful for these amazing people and the blessing they have been to my life. I love it when clients become friends and that is definitely the case with this family. It has been an honor getting to know them and photographing their lovely family.
