In the tapestry of my life, the threads have always been woven with the grace and strength of women. From the tender age of 13, I found myself enveloped by the wisdom of three remarkable women: my mother, my aunt, and my grandmother. It was my grandmother who imparted a profound lesson – the art of creating a sanctuary for women, a space where they could unfurl their souls without fear of judgment, and to embrace, even when understanding eludes.
For over three decades, I’ve stood behind the lens, guiding women through a journey of self-expression, a voyage that commenced within the pages of high school yearbooks. It was in the year 2000 that Japan became my sanctuary, a place where the delicate cherry blossoms whispered secrets only a heart attuned to their language could comprehend.
In 2002, amidst the vibrant tapestry of Japan, I encountered the melody of my life, my wife. Our symphony commenced in harmonious union in 2003, and the crescendo of our love was echoed in the arrival of our precious child in 2005.
Since embarking on this creative odyssey, I have earned the trust of women spanning the spectrum from novices to seasoned professionals. It was in 2007, when the seeds of my devotion to the art form took root, germinating within the realm of online art schools. By 2012, I had taken my place on the professional stage, a stage illuminated by the radiant spirits of the women I’ve been blessed to capture.
In the pages of glossy magazines, the pixels of web features, and the tangible embrace of print, both myself and my work have found their voices, echoing the celebration of feminine strength and vulnerability. In the annals of 2020, my company unveiled a masterpiece, a Yoga book that captured the grace of movement and the serenity of stillness.
With every click of the shutter, I bring to bear a rich tapestry of wisdom, drawn from my yoga teacher training, the mosaic of my life experiences, and the symphony of coaching that orchestrates my own journey. My mission is an unwavering commitment – to serve women through the alchemy of photography and inner exploration. Through my lens, I seek to nurture not only the external beauty but also the luminous flame that resides within. Together, we embark on a journey to tend to the heart’s garden, cultivating a spirit that radiates both ease and confidence.
