{ portraits // mato family }

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

Seriously one of the happiest little families I ever did see! I was so excited when Peggy contacted me to take their family portraits, especially since they would all be donning beautiful kimonos and hakamas. The dressing up was also partially in celebration for the kids’ shichi-go-san celebration, which literally translates into “seven-five-three” and is a celebration for children of that age. I remember dressing up and having photos taken for my own shichi-go-san a bajillion years ago, so it brought back sweet memories of having my hair done and sporting a kimono that was so tight I could barely breathe, but made me feel absolutely fancy and beautiful :)

Little Jenna and Jake are seriously so full of personality and happiness, and I loved photographing this beautiful family in such a beautiful setting. Would love to do more sessions like this in the future! :)
