About Me

  Thank you for stopping by my site as you can see I love what I do and have many ideas and styles of photography. My work has featured in One Hope wine catalog.  I shoot anything from fantasy which I can provide costumes and makeup. Weddings, where I like to tell a story about your special day. Photoshoots of you and your loved one to cherish forever, Head shots, for agencies or if you just want a to show a different side of you. Animals,  they are your best friends. Maternity, a new beginning of your life. Babies, because they grow up in a blink of an eye. And so much more. 

Although I love to shoot with natural light, I do have an in home studio for more intimate shoots. I also have a 2700 sq. ft. studio you can rent in Riverside that has multiple muslin and paper backgrounds, specialty props, different rooms, makeup stations, catering area, large projection and surround sound system, WiFi and movable studio wall.


A little about me
 I'm a wife and mother of one amazing little man. I grew up modeling when I was 9 years old and was Miss America International in 2001 where I represented my country in Japan which is a step down from the Miss Universe pageant, such a great experience. After that I became a freelance makeup artist for Chanel, MAC, and other companies up until I had my son in 2010. I also studied photography at Golden West College in Westminster CA. in 2001, after years of shooting film, I developed a passion for digital photography. My father was a part-time photographer since I was a child, I learned so much from him.  Now I am in to photoshop and love taking my photography to a new level!
