All photographers know that golden hour is the most beautiful and magical time for portraits. Most clients, however, can only get on board with the evening golden hour timeframe. Enter: this family. My good friend and neighbor who also happens to be a fabulous photographer herself was all about getting some sunrise sakura photos, and I am so glad we did. The light was gorgeous on this particular morning, which made this family’s photo session of their last sakura season in Japan all the more memorable.
