Studio Tour

In my last blog post, I spoke of the absolute nightmare condition the studio was in when I got it.  After 4 weeks of construction and another few weeks of fine tuning, I finally have the space dialed in.  It was no easy task bringing the space from a warehouse to a sophisticated studio space.  It was a joint effort between me and my interior designer Sandi Kaneko Interiors.  Sandi elevated the space by guiding me in color palette curation, finishes and furniture.  I’m so glad I hired a professional rather than trying to DIY Ikea everything.  The space is everything I envisioned and more!

Mid-Century Hideaway Family Session

When Yvonne and I were planning her session, the words “cool Mid-Century modern house” surfaced and my ears perked up like a curious puppy.  A noteworthy session in the works indeed!!

Why at-home family sessions?

20% of my clients decide to invite me to their home for family portraits.  Its a different, relaxed energy when you get to photograph people in their own space.  The images captured at home are some of the most genuine, intimate and candid moments I could hope to capture.

Arriving to the Mid-Century Hideaway

On arrival, I toured Yvonne & Michael’s Mid-Century modern hideaway and was in a photographer’s paradise.  High celings, floor-to-celing windows, gorgeous wood…  We even went to the garage and planned shots of the kids with their Porsche (you know I love me some cars).

Last time we photographed Yvonne & Michael to celebrate their only child Madison’s birthday (pictured left) & Yvonne’s baby bump and THIS time, their newest addition, Joelle, was turning 1, so to add to my delight, we planned for a cake smash too.

On the “Sachiko Studio favorite things” list, this shoot checked most of those boxes:  Mid-Century home shoot, cake smash, car shoot, documenting family growth.  Check check check!

Here is what 2 hours with Yvonne & Michael’s beautiful family was like!
