Behind the Scenes Photos: Shi-chi-go-san Film Shoot

"Shichi-go-san" (Seven-Five-Three) is a traditional rite of passage and festival day in Japan for three & seven-year-old girls and three & five-year-old boys, held annually on November 15. The ages three, five and seven are consistent with East Asian numerology, which claims that odd numbers are lucky. It was a pleasure to spend the day with the Spence family to help capture this rite of passage for young Kairi. The Shi-chi-go-san film shoot was produced and created by Lee Blois. My role on this shoot was photography, here are some of the images from that day below. See the gear we used.
