Let me also share some of my recent works.
First up, it’s Yukiko and Hiro. Back in 2011, this couple asked me to photograph when they tied the knot. We had fun photographing them before they were officially married, shooting on the typical Melbourne graffiti lane ways, then ‘just married’ couple on Melbourne street, before ending up on the tram restaurant. Check out some of the photos here. This time, I was asked to photograph them with their first baby, Sota-kun.
Next up, this is also a family I’ve photographed a few times in the past. I photographed Eisuke-kun for the first time when he was still a new born baby of one month back in early 2011 (photos here). Then the parents, Kumiko and Keisuke, have asked me to photographed them again when Eisuke just turned 1 (photos here). This is the first time we meet in the hot Osakan summer, and instead of shooting in their store or out in the park on a humid day, they suggested their favourite aquarium, ‘Kaiyukan’. They have annual membership and visit the place quite frequently. It makes sense to record the growth of their son in a place that has been a part of his life so far.
As you can see, my approach to family photography is candid snaps using natural light, not formal portraiture. I believe people will show their natural, ‘real’ expression in such a set up, and I am able to capture the way they look, as their loved ones know them.
If you like your family and loved ones photographed in your family home, favourite hangout, or just at family milestone events, please enquire by email, including brief description of what you want photographed, date start/end time, location and your contact details (phone number). I can produce an enlarged print, photobook or any other format that you wish.
