A tiny step.

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” – Lao Tzu +++ 【 N O T I C E 】 Just to let you know that all weekend photo session spots have already been taken until late September, and currently, I am not able to accept NEW CLIENTS for “FAMILY-PHOTO SESSIONS” until further notice. Life style portrait session during weekdays is still available for both new/repeat clients. Sorry for the inconveniences it may cause and appreciate your understanding. MARIKO ©Mariko Evans  

Life is a gift – never take it for granted.

Dear friends, Recently, a sad news hit me deeply. Humberto – who’s a talented artist, great tango dancer, loving father of the 14-month-old boy, and husband to my dear friend Elena, who’s also an inspiring artist with most beautiful soul – had a heart attack, and he’s facing heart surgery which would take a long way to recover.

The ordinary life – we tend to forget to appreciate how precious it actually is – it could be ended and …

See you soon, Japan.

Well, I haven’t finished my packing yet but I’m leaving for Tokyo this afternoon. Thank you for those who have booked a new/repeated portrait session with me, I can’t wait to see you all there…! P.S. I’ll be there for 3 weeks and I’ll update this site/facebook when I can – or I may not. : ) P.P.S. Vancouver, I’ll miss you so much! +++ A girl was seen @ KAWAGOE FESTIVAL in 2015. ©Mariko Evans    

Starry night.

“Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all.” -Vincent van Gogh +++ We’ll be away for 2 weeks and possibly little more. We’re going to somewhere no internet is available – so no updates will be made.  Look forward to our digital cleanse and absolute serenity under the night sky studded with stars again. (The photo was shot last year) Happy weekend everyone and see you when I see you!    

I wish you…

Lovely festive season and Happy New Year… *Here’s the video of this baby & family session, please have a look. :)* Hello, So this is my last post for 2015. As some of you may know, I’ve been keeping 3 sites to post images of different character. However, I’m often being asked; “Are you the same person who posts those diverse types of image?” …and I feel a bit strange about this. Yes, indeed I am, as I encounter beauty in a multitude of forms. These images are my perception of the world around me, and reflect who I am. To …

Before the rain.

“I like the rain before it falls. of course there is no such thing, she said. That’s why it’s my favorite. Something can still make you happy, can’t it, even if it isn’t real.” -Jonathan Coe, Rain before it falls +++ A little announcement: So.
