Late last year, I heard from a group of friends who wanted to collectively offer a gift to the Nowak family. The group thought that the Nowaks would enjoy a portrait session in Tokyo since they would soon be moving on from their life in Japan. Of course I was happy to provide a gift certificate for the Nowaks and looked forward to scheduling their custom session.
After receiving their digital gift, the Nowaks promptly contacted me and set their family portrait session shoot for a day in early winter. Here in Japan, winter doesn't mean frigid temperatures or heaps of snow. In fact, winter in Japan is more than pleasant and kids generally do a great job out and about in the brisk air (In all honesty, it is my favorite time of year for family sessions in nature or in the city).
While it was chilly on our scheduled date, the Nowaks were still ready and keen to head into the streets of Tokyo.
For an hour or so, the Nowak family and I strolled through the backstreets of Shibuya, opting to skip the hustle and bustle of the main thoroughfares for the calmer alleys that locals are familiar with.
The Nowaks and I had a great time together. Their young son had a wealth of energy that I was eager to keep up with. In the end, we created a wealth of images that will not only serve as a reminder of their time living in Tokyo, but of the time when they were a young family.
