Happy New Year!!! Underwater healer project will be growing in 2014!

Happy New Year, Everyone!! ?????????????????

2013 was an amazing, inspirational and evolving year for me. I felt like I was riding on a roller coaster emotionally and physically everyday. It was definitely fun and dizzy πŸ™‚ Looking back into all the underwater portrait photos in 2013, I had 23 portrait photo shoots including survivors, engagement, family and maternity! I was busy towards the end of the year especially working with 10 survivors in 3 states in 3 months besides my full time job! I managed my time to not lose myself and I think I made it through successful result!


My project, Underwater Healer About Face, helping heal cancer survivors through underwater portrait photography, was featured on CBS, The Huffington Post, The Huff Women, BuzzFeed, Weather Channel, IMDb, AsianWeek etc.  It was an exciting moment and I’ve never felt that kind of chill and goosebumps all over my body inside out. I loved that feeling. (definitely not good for your heart πŸ™‚


I’m currently working on a book of cancer survivor underwater images with their stories. It’ll be in English and Japanese. I’m hoping to extend my project all over the world and reach out to people as much as I can. This is my first book that I’m designing and I hope many people can read it and get inspire.


Thank you so much. I would not have been able to do this campaign without your support! I hope you all have a fantastic new year!
