Tokyo Fashion Photographer | Reina (玲奈)


This photoshoot with the enigmatic Reina is definitely one of my recent favorites. What I like about this girl is that she so effortlessly expresses herself for the camera - rather than constructed poses, she seems so natural and relaxed. Reina is amazing with the "cool" type of looks, but she also has a bright and adorable smile! I can tell that she has a lot of talent and can go far.

We did this shoot along with Yumiko at Kagurazaka (神楽坂), a quiet, hilly neighborhood of Tokyo. This area had so many nice backgrounds and interesting settings to use for creating our images. The summer heat left me wishing for some ice cream by the end of the shoot. The humidity has crept up to the point that as soon as you step outside, you are enveloped by the thick air, a cloud of warmth. Not so much when we did this shoot last month, but especially since last and this week. I guess this will be continuing for another month or two before a cool breath signaling autumn arrives on the wind.
