I had the pleasure of conducting an early morning photoshoot with a delightful family in Kyoto! Our meeting time was set at 7:30 am to avoid the hustle and bustle at the Yasaka pagoda viewing spot. Although a few early risers were already taking photos, we managed to capture a beautiful shot with the Yasaka pagoda backdrop minus the crowd. The kids, being friendly and camera-savvy, made the shoot enjoyable. Thanks to their parents’ thoughtful heads-up about the photoshoot a few days earlier, the kids were relaxed, making the entire experience smooth. Our journey continued to Maruyama Park and some local gems in the Gion area, where the autumn leaves were at their peak. With fewer people around, we had the freedom to capture wonderful moments. It was a joyful session, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to photograph your family! Thank you for choosing my services!
