Tokyo Portrait Photography: Daichi Yokota of club-D music

I'm happy to finally present these portraits of Daichi Yokota of club-D music. A talented music composer and producer, among numerous other roles, he has handled the music projects of such artists as Mai Kuraki and Gackt. With big help from Samantha of Letters Impromptu, I had a lot of fun creating these images set against the beautiful backdrop of nighttime Tokyo! Thank you so much, Daichi-san and Samantha!

Tokyo Portrait Photography: Stacey

Simple, clean portraits outside in natural sunlight will always be my favorite. Lately, the early fall weather in Tokyo is just perfect for taking a stroll outside in late afternoon. I can't believe how beautiful the sky is these days.

This photoshoot with Stacey happened on that kind of afternoon, with a wonderful breeze flowing through the air. I was honored to help shoot her first portraits in Japan, and I'm so happy with how they turned out! Thank you, Stacey!

Tokyo Portrait Photography: Sarah

Hi, everyone! I feel like it's been ages... Apologies for the lack of updates all around! There are times when I really get into an updating and blogging frenzy, sharing day after day of posts... and then there are times when life itself just catches up to me, but in a glad sort of way. Thinking about what I really want to do and the many things I still want to accomplish. It's a good feeling!

Today, I'd like to share one of my very favorite recent photoshoots featuring the amazing Sarah! A talented actress and dancer, I first met Sarah almost a year ago when shooting some cast portraits for a play's program. It's unbelievable that a year has already flown by since then...! Sarah's expressive power and natural aura made this shoot so easy, not to mention fun! Thanks to her preparation and skills, we shot through about 5 different outfits/looks in an hour and a half.

Sarah, I can't wait to see where the future will take you. Thank you so much!
