I grew up in a Japanese-American home where photographs are as important as the memories that are held within them. The few photos that survived WW II not only helped my family bridge the past to the present, but serves as a starting point in understanding our family’s journey, providing a fertile ground for both present and future generations to thrive in love, security and knowing that we all belong to this wonderful family.

Every fleeting moment in life are precious moments. My goal is to capture these precious moments, from the simple joys of everyday living to your monumental occasions and share with you the gift of memories that can be enjoyed for many, many years to come.

Photographs to me are beyond images on paper. They tell stories of love and family. They are gifts that represent life and love and I want to share these gifts with you.
