A beautiful transformation . . . from a girl to a young lady. Her family and grandparents were there to cheer, celebrate her being sweet sixteen and witness the transformation.
One of her grandmothers immigrated from Japan, kept her kimono, passed it on to her daughter who also wore the kimono at special occasions such as at her wedding, and now she has handed it down to her granddaughter who is now old enough to wear it – one of the dreams of her grandmother was coming true.
Witnessing Mrs.Mikko’s tieing her long hair up, placing layers of silk and tying the Obi (the thick silk sash) on her with help of her mother’s hand was like enjoying an artistic performance, and here we are, how gorgeous she looks and stands. . .
Capturing women in three generations, and families all together!
at a park just a half block away . . . , and then we finished up at my Japanese Tatami room.
I feel so honored to be there to capture the family’s celebration! Lots of care, support and love . . . she is in great hands and I can see her bright future!
I can not thank them all enough to have the opportunity to capture you….
till next time 😉
