Message from the artist

~ As a mother of a child ~

My first pregnancy was in 2018.

I recognized,  for the first time in my life, the miracle of life, and the preciousness of getting pregnant as a woman. I felt that every woman is a warrior to get through this tough and amazing work.

The experience of pregnancy and giving birth to a baby is much honorable as our ceremony of being adult and wedding.  So I want to praise the moment of pregnancy with the most beautiful and gorgeous attire in Japanese culture - Furisode Kimono, which is used for other important ceremony for woman.


Every time I take maternity photo and do bellypainting for my clients, I feel so happy and be passionate to be a maker of their beautiful memory.
