"I first found photos of Ai’s artwork on Instagram. I had been looking for something similar for a pregnancy belly art project. She was quick to respond both in English and in Japanese and was very accommodating of my requests.
The project itself was done in a little less than 4hrs and professionally photographed all in her studio in Yokohama. I absolutely loved my bellyart and cannot recommend her enough. She is brilliant and so very easy to work with. Thank you Ai for capturing such an important part of my pregnancy journey. Arigato Gozaimashita." (O.T)

"Ai-san had been very patient with me - right from answering my endless queries till the time the photos were posted. 

A talented person who knows her piece of work and does it with ease.
For my belly painting she collaborated her and my ideas together and made it into a beautiful piece of art.

Thanks a lot for making my maternity photoshoot a memorable one!!!" (R.M)

"Thank you so very much for the incredible photoshoot session! I’m usually really self conscious in front of a camera, but you’re so kind and made me feel so comfortable. The costumes, flowers, how you directed me to pose, and the photography is so perfect, it’s hard to believe one person can be master of so many things. You’re very talented! I already love the raw photos!
Thank you so much for this one of kind magical experience, for sharing your art with me, and for making me feel beautiful today. "(T.N)
