I was born in Hokkaido, Japan and grew up in the city of Sapporo. I have lived in Tokyo, New York, San Francisco, and most recently, Yakushima, Japan. I love travelling around the world. My heart has brought me to Los Angeles where I reside with my three children.

During my travels, I could see a different sort of beauty regardless of where I was. Everywhere I went I encountered people who shared with me their laughter, tears and joy. I have always been a dreamer. I have big dreams and little ones too. My current dream is to see everyone be happy and have their dreams fulfilled.

Even in our everyday lives, there are unexpected moments that make us feel ‘alive’. I would like to shine light on those moments through my lens. “Lumiere Photo Studio” was named with this wish in mind. Let me help you find and capture your special story.
