Erika Nielson | Portland Portrait Photography

Erika contacted me several months ago to have me shoot her Hatachi photos – a Japanese coming-of-age tradition celebrating a person’s 20th birthday. We met up this past Thursday at the Hoyt Arboretum in Portland and I photographed her wearing a gorgeous red and orange Kimono. I’ve never done anything quite like this before, but it was a really fun experience to learn a little about a new culture! Kimono and hair styling by Toshimi Tanaka.
