Fall is usually considered the busy season for family photographers, but after my first cherry blossom season in Japan, I can say with confidence that photographers here will, without a doubt, be busy as soon as the sakura trees are blooming. When my neighbor asked if I could do family portraits for them among the beautiful sakura trees, I jumped at the chance. And then, I did a few more sessions for other people as well. These trees bloom for such a short amount of time, and they are celebrated throughout the country. Sakura season is real, and it is everywhere. Standby for lots of family photos among these glorious trees.
