And to capture them interacting naturally and peacefully, Kusumose asked them not to look at the camera as the father told them a story, hoping that would usher in an intimate and engaging scene between the family of five. “Then this graceful frame came up,” says Kusumose, who clicked the shutter just as one of the daughters couldn’t help but peek over at him.

Photographed on a using Nikon D3S and a 180mm f/2.8D lens.
