Meet Mai


I’m Mai :)

(Mai pronounced “my”) and I’m a Motherhood Photographer based in Discovery Bay, Hong Kong. Thank you for taking time to learn more about me. There seems to be many choices in photographers in Hong Kong, and I’m so thankful for your time considering me and my work.

  • I’m Japanese.

I was born and raised in Osaka, Japan.  I moved to the USA in 2007. I was an educator, teaching Japanese at Public High Schools for 8 years. I moved to Hong Kong with my husband in Oct, 2016.

  • I’m a wife and a mom of our fur baby.

My fur baby’s name is Tyson.  We adopted Tyson, a male black lab mix, when he was 4 months old. He moved to Hong Kong with us and is a happiest dog ever! :)

And now we are having a baby girl in August, 2018!!!
You can read more about us on these personal blog posts!!

  • I’m an artist.

I’d love to create images that will be adored for generations to come. Capturing authenticity, connections and emotions that family shares is my absolute favorite.

Please contact me for anything. You can reach out to me by Facebook, Instagram, and Email.

Thank you – Arigatou!
