Message from the Owner


Hello everyone!

I’m Mami (Otsuki) Ichihara from Meet The Photo

I was born and raised in Sendai.

On March 11, when the Great East Japan Earthquake occurred, I was working in Sendai..
And soon after the earthquake, my father passed away because of illness.
Fortunately, our house was located inland, so our family managed to conduct a funeral and display a photo of his smiling face.

On the other hand, in the middle of chaos, there were a lot of families who had to conduct funerals without pictures of their deceased loved ones.
This incident made me realize how grateful and fortunate it is to keep photos of those we love.
As time goes on, I feel this way more strongly.

We are living in the era when we can easily leave photos behind or throw them away.
Thus, photos empower people living in the present.
It’s my responsibility as a photographer to bring out that power to the greatest extent.

Photos are gifts for you and your loved ones in the present and future.
Believe in power of photos.
