I worked with an all Japanese crew, English was limited and I tried my best with my Japanese. Regardless of our language barrier we were able to get some fantastic images.
Photographer Fukishimasan is a well known photographer around Tokyo. He executed the desired lighting perfectly.
Make-up artist Mayumi Sugawa really facilitated the mood and attitude that we had hope to capture in the images. Taking the look from natural and minimal to a sleek and polished.

Hi! I am Chanyn and the author of Stylist Standpoint. I first launched my blog in Tokyo, Japan in 2011 for a community of fashion lovers, gypsy souls and mommies on the go. Stylist Standpoint was relaunched in NYC and is now being reborn in Seattle, WA. As a former fashion stylist and fashion contributor, I love to blog about style for busy moms, kids fashion, and lifestyle in the PNW. If you are a mommy always racing through the motions of motherhood but love a creative outlet, shopping for the kids and getting out of the house. You are right at home here! Guest Bloggers are always welcome with open arms and a virtual glass of wine. xx
