omiyamairi photos at the local shrine

I filmed the wedding day of the bride and groom almost 2 years ago so it was great to be get an email from them again. They had had a baby and would I be able to photograph their visit to the Shrine (お宮参り)?  Wonderful to see the couple and family again. This time the parents were not only proud parents but also proud grandparents – her mother held the baby throughout the Omiyamari ceremony and her dad spent most of the time gazing at the baby adoringly.

Wonderful opportunity to catch up with the couple again. Next up on the Japanese calendar of photo chances is shichigosan (七五三) so hopefully I’ll be able to take those as well. Not sure if I will be able to hold the camera steady in 25 or 30 years when the baby has her own wedding though!
