I appreciate your interest in my website.  Prior to returning to Japan to start my family, I spent more than twelve years based in New York photographing streets and people all over the world. While taking a break from shooting for 7 years to focus on my family and raising children, I experienced many wonderful things.  There is nothing compared to being a mother and being part of a family.  As a mother of two children, I witness and appreciate their growth everyday. There are of course challenges and pains associated with raising children as well…Our pictures of birth and our babies will always bring back the wonderful moments and give me the courage to move forward through the difficult times.

It is with deep pleasure and honor to be part of your own important memories that I have embarked upon my shooting with the theme of “HUG.”
