We woke up early on a Saturday morning and headed to the Hie Jinga Shrine in Akasaka, Tokyo. It is pretty special for us to be delivering our first child in Japan and I wanted that to be the theme of our photoshoot. We even made an “Ema” for our soon-to-be daughter.
Our photographer, Anatole Papafillippou is awesome and his portraits for maternity and newborn are amazing. I have worked on fashion photoshoots with Anatole a number of times and always feel comfortable and confident working with him. I highly suggest using him for any portraits if you live in Tokyo or near by. For contact information and to see more of his work, please check out his website:
