|About||Happy Beautiful Wealthy (HBW), is a place that you can share your happiness in life, your natural beauty, and your wealth in love. I want to know YOU!|
April 2015, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Sept 2015, I had brain surgery to remove it. From that day on, I deal with daily constant and chronic pain. I've also been diagnosed with a rare form of epilepsy. While I try to not allow these things to get in my way, I do have days where the best thing I can do for myself, is stay in bed. The camera has helped me with dealing with some of the pain, providing a distraction, but it's not as effective anymore. And that is still okay. It's become something I truly love to do for people.
I love life and I love all of the beauty it holds. I love the many different and unique faces and personalities I get to work with. What sets me apart from other photographers is that the pain is what helps me create BEAUTY. I consider myself a natural photographer. I don't usually work with props and I also create each photo session according to each person. I don't have an individualized style. It's all person to person.
I chose Happy Beautiful Wealthy for the name of my work because my Grandma Kimie had a part in my name, Kiyomi. The way it's written in Japanese has the meaning of happy, beautiful, and wealthy. I felt that every picture I take has the opportunity to meet all three expectations, especially because each and every person has all of those within them if they truly choose to see it.
