Tokyo Family Photography: Kimono and Fall Colors

What a joy to photograph Annie, Osamu, and their sweet daughter Rosa in her breathtaking first kimono! The bright yellow gingko trees and red maple leaves were displaying their full colors, making vivid backdrops for this family photoshoot. Thank you all, I had an amazing time!

Tokyo Family Photography: A Sunny Afternoon at Home

It was lovely to shoot some photos for Carole's family on a perfectly warm, autumn afternoon. I just love photographing a family in their natural interactions with each other, and it's heartwarming to see each member's care for the others.

Tokyo Portrait Photography: Hatsue and Jeffrey

Not long ago, I had the pleasure of photographing Hatsue Nakamura and Jeffrey Trambley, who perform opera together and are two of the coolest musicians around. They were so friendly and just overall a lot of fun to shoot with, especially as they came up with quite a few creative ideas and weren't afraid to be silly during the process. Hatsue and Jeffrey, thank you both so much!

A few snapshots of Shibuya from some weeks ago. This part of the city just has a unique atmosphere about it, and no matter how many times I've been there throughout my over five years in Tokyo, passing through for train transfers, for work, shopping, meeting up with friends... I find Shibuya sort of fascinating.

Tokyo Portrait Photography: Adam

A while back, I did this portrait photoshoot for Adam. He brought his daughter along to the shoot, and it was so much fun to watch them interact with each other. It was easy to see their strong bond, and inspiring to hear from Adam that he hoped his daughter would grow up strong and adventurous.
