I started doing photography and dance when I was a university student. Inspiration from dance influences my photography. Above all, I am interested in femininity and the modern human’s relationship with nature. I have been taking woman’s portraits and photographs of nature since the beginning.
In 2011, I was really impressed by the beauty and power of my pregnant friend when I took her portrait. That was the impetus for launching my own studio for pregnant women. Since then, I have taken portraits of more than 1000 pregnant women.
In 2016, I moved to NY, and I am continuing to create photography incorporating the themes of femininity, nature and dance.
