From the eyes of a dear friend…
I’ve known William for a long time; we’ve both grown up in wedding photography industry. William then decide to steer his career to family portrait photography; new born, maternity and happy family portraits. As always, he succeeds and I am a proud friend.
It was autumn in Japan, such a lovely weather, perfect setting, and amazing ambience. William and Devi, his dear wife and son Max coincidently went to Japan the same time I was there. I was genuinely touched when he asked me to take his family portrait. It was somewhat nerve wrecking. What if he didn’t like my photos? William is such a master in this field, I was worried.
But then I thought to myself, reflected back, I am his friend, I like this family so much, I would just see it from my own eyes, how happy I felt seeing this lovely family. And so I did, I let it flew naturally. I was there, not directing, but talking and chatting to friends whom I know for long. I believe my eyes transfer those feelings to my lens.
Here are the results, genuinely from the heart.
