Raindrops in July

Japan's rainy season dripdrops on, and the air is blessedly cool thanks to it. Flowers and leaves drink up the moisture, glistening and quivering under the weight. Despite the heavy clouded gray of the skies, it's a beautiful, colorful season. Like the others, this too will come to an end before we know it.

Tokyo Disneyland Family Photography: Land of Dreams

The other day, I had the honor of photographing Elisabeth and Dexter's family during their visit to Tokyo Disneyland! Their sweet little boy, Lloyd, was so excited and ran around the entire time while clutching his beloved Pooh bear. The whole family was in Japan for a trip, including Lloyd's grandparents, and everyone was so nice that it made the photoshoot truly enjoyable for me. Not to mention, it was actually my very first time visiting Tokyo Disneyland, and the last times I went to California's Disneyland and Florida's Disney World were many years ago, when I was just a kid, so it was a fantastic first experience for me. Elisabeth and Dexter, many thanks to you and your family for having me as your photographer during your Tokyo Disneyland visit! :)

Here are just a few of my favorites taken during the shoot:

Mountain Farm

It's the beginning of rainy season in these parts, and a light rain mists down over the treetops, then pours, then stops again. Rarely do I see such trees growing together so thickly, so concentrated in one area. The grass beneath our feet glistens with just-fallen rain. Animals mill about, calm and contentedly, the occasional call of a sheep or goat ringing out over the land. Baby cows gaze at us with wide, bright eyes and extend their tongues to lick our fingers. It's a quiet, beautiful day in these hills.
