Inspired by the rich world of kimono patterns, fascinating history, colours and tradition, I decided to share my skills and knowledge with others. In November 2018 I created INKIMONO.
I offer kimono experience with a professional portrait photoshoot on location. I offer personalized styling ― I will choose a full kimono outfit based on your personal style, favorite colours, style, any requests you may have.
I often add some historical and cultural background of kimono while dressing! I believe that knowing what you wear, where it came from, what’s the story behind it, makes you appreciate it more and get even closer to Japanese culture. With my photoshoots I can also offer hairstyling (done by me) and a makeup option (done by a makeup artist).
I use only authentic, often antique and vintage silk kimono and obi.
For portrait photoshoots I use Canon 6 EOS Mark II. I edit photos using Adobe Lightroom Photoshop and provide professionaly edited high resolution images.
— before the shoot I will prepare a full kimono outfit for you (for friends, partners etc) based on your personal style, things and colors you like, and any requests you may have. We discuss my suggestions on the day and it's okay to make changes to it.
Please note that unedited data is not provided under any circumstances -- only edited photos.
If you'd like to bring your own kimono for the photoshoot -- rates will remain the same.
Currently I am booked until the end of August, however you can always email for availability information.
I open my schedule 4 months in advance. September 2023 will open on May 1st 2023 and so on. If you don't see any available dates on my calendar, it means I am fully booked for the next 5 months and haven't opened the next month yet. In some cases it's possible to book in advance, please email if you'd like to secure an appointment earlier.
