What a wonderful session with a beautiful family! I have to admit that I was super excited when they called. They are from Laos and wanted to incorporate an Asian flair to their portraits along with a candid, relaxed style. The Japanese Gardens were obviously the perfect fit for them.
I’m always so excited to shoot here. There is such a richness to the environment – especially in the spring and fall. Although the location fee is steep – $75 plus admission to even think about shooting there – I’m thinking it might be worth it! This bridge is my favorite. I swear it was designed for portraits. Plus the kids love coming here to feed the giant koi under the bridge.
The goal was to get a series of wall portraits from the session and we ended up designing 4 square canvases for a particular wall. The album they chose was a hand made leather 8×8 version. It’s beautiful and I can’t wait until they pick it up.
Grandfather and grandson had such a tight bond. Truth be told, neither one of them were thrilled to be in front of the camera but the most precious moments came from the two of them interacting when they thought I wasn’t paying attention.
