With Lisa in Sankeien Gardens

With Lisa in Sankeien Gardens

The spring was in the air, flowers and trees were starting to bloom, temperatures were rising - time for an outing to the all-year-long beautiful Yokohama Sankeien Gardens. This time it was with my dear friend Lisa. Her outfit matched the color scheme of an early spring garden perfectly and our fooling around resulted in an impromptu portrait session. ・Sankeien Gardens, Yokohama ・2019/03/20 UK Lanc

Olivia's Graduation Portraits

Olivia’s Graduation Portraits

Olivia's parents live in Japan and she studies last year in a university in the US. So when she visited her parents this winter, they asked me to take her portraits for the graduation announcements which will be sent out in May after she passes all her final exams. I call it a total trust in daughter's academic abilities :-) Again, it was freezing cold but Olivia was willing to pose only in her light sweater and a s

Three Sixteens

Three Sixteens

Photographing these three friends was a real treat for me. I know their moms who are delightful to hang out with and their daughters were no different. Although it was more the moms who wanted the pictures done, the girls very quickly relaxed in front of the camera and started to act spontaneously. Their sense of humor was hilarious and their laughter contagious. It was one of the funniest experiences that I have eve

Milai in Zushi

Milai in Zushi

It's always a nice experience to do a photo shoot with Milai. She is an inspiring model, smart, gentle and fun. For this session we went to Zushi, did some outdoor and also indoor pictures and waited for night to come to do most pictures using fairy lights as the only light source. It was a new thing for me, quite difficult to get everything in focus but Milai was extremely patient and we got some nice shots. ・

Little Mermaid

Tessa has always reminded me of a little mermaid when I've seen her passing by the Middle school floor at my sons' school. I was excited when she agreed that our photo will take place on the beach. The sea suits to her natural beauty.

Rising Star

I've known this young man since his elementary school years. He's always stood out from the crowd and had multiple talents so it's not surprising he became a musician with promising career. It's been a delight to take his portrait while he was doing what he likes the most, playing music.

Sweet Sixteen

Sweet Sixteen

Natalie's mom and dad have been our family friends since high school, so when I and Natalie's mom found out we are pregnant at the same time, we were over the moon. Our first son and Natalie were born only 10 days apart. Whenever we all met, we always had the feeling that those two kids look alike. Well, we can't call them kids anymore. This young lady totally took my breath away when I saw her after a year this summ
