Traditional Kimono Portrait Session| Orlando Photo Studio | In studio Portraits| Portrait photographer
Mona, the mother of these two gorgeous girls contacted me and expressed to me she wanted simple in studio portraits of the girls in Traditional Japanese Kimonos. I was so excited for this project because Kimonos are gorgeous and Mulan wears one that looks similar to a Japanese Kimono right? I understand she's Chinese but that's the closest experience to a Kimono I've seen in real life!
For every client that steps foot into the photo studio I want to ensure its an experience and not a cookie cutter feel. Each client has their own vision of what they would like to see on their walls. And portraits are family heirloom pieces that are handed down for generations. The challenge was on and I thought about what color background would look best for the colorful Kimonos. The garments are brighter and for younger girls and they get darker in color as the girls get older.
In studio portraits, should we smile or not smile? Serious looks only? I learned that feet have to be together at all times and everything underneath the Kimono must remain hidden and out of sight. So I thought a jumping shot would look really awesome, but then the undergarments would show. So lets just stand cute and smile! The Background was seamless paper from Savage in eggshell. Wonderful color right! Below are just a few in studio portraits from the session. I love the colors and designs.
