Family: Bailey Canyon in the morning

During a morning photoshoot in Bailey Canyon, I was excited to capture the enduring happiness and love of a returning family. The familial bonds were prominently featured in each photograph, with genuine smiles and shared laughter in each shot. Despite the absence of photographing during golden hour, the morning light provided a fitting backdrop, allowing for the creation of beautiful and timeless images that authentically reflected the warmth and togetherness of this delightful family.

Family: Bailey Canyon

As the sun descended over Bailey Canyon, the whole place turned into this dreamy, golden wonderland. It was that magical time photographers call golden hour, and it gave [Family C] this amazing soft, warm glow that made them look straight out of a fairytale. My style is very journalistic, which means, I approach every session with minimal posing, and I let the family flow at their own pace. We began the session with the family of three sitting on a picnic blanket, and I captured the authentic smiles and giggles in stills. As the sun started to set, we got


Newborn: In-home session with 10-day boy

Photographing 10-day-old baby [A] at the comfort of his home was a heartwarming experience. This was a very typical experience when photographing an in-home newborn session. We started the session with photographing the full family, and ended with baby [A]’s solo portraits on the newborn photography table. The baby boy, still in his earliest days, was a bundle of pure innocence and curiosity. His tiny fingers and toes, along with his delicate features, were a delight to photograph.

I call myself a ‘people’ photographer, specializing in capturing the personalities of people through family, newborn and event photography. I’m originally German-Japanese and was raised embracing both cultures. I was raised in Japan and in many parts of Europe, until I finally settled in Los Angeles to call it my permanent home. My love for photography started at an early age. A fun hobby eventually turned in to a passion when I found joy in taking candid photos of my friends. Naturally, my love for photography turned in to a lifestyle and I was asked to photograph people’s milestones and celebrations. And so, my photography business was born in 2010.
