Goodbye California, Hello Japan!

California has been my home for the past 11 years.  It is so bitter sweet to say goodbye to a place where I have created so many memories.  From Santa Barbara, where I submerged myself in learning photography and then down to Los Angeles where I continued to pursue my passion and created my own business.  The past eight years I was blessed to work with one of the most influential photographers of our time, Douglas Kirkland, who taught me every day how to see the light and how to create beautiful photographs.  So here's to saying goodbye to: California, all my wonderful clients and friends, my cute little house I have spent the past seven years living in, the perfect weather (oh how I am going to miss that!) and last but not least my maiden name!  Here's to saying hello to: Marriage!, a new chapter in my life, new friends, exploring a great country, yummy sushi, and pursuing my career as a photographer with new clients! Excited to say that all these goodbyes will eventually be replaced with so many wonderful hellos :)
