Hello! My name is Laura Izumikawa. Or Laura Iz. Or Izzy or Larz. Infinity points to whoever can pronounce my last name correctly the first time! I was born in Tokyo to a Korean mother and a Chinese-Japanese father. At the age of three, my parents packed eleven humongous immigration bags and moved us to Southern California where we still reside. I’ve been working as a lifestyle/wedding photographer for nearly a decade, a job that has taken me to countless beautiful locations and has allowed me to make countless new friendships. I have THE most amazing husband and together we have a daughter named Joey Marie.
I started this blog in October of 2016 after my Instagram sort of blew up over some photos of my daughter Joey being dressed as pop culture icons while she napped. The huge amount of attention we received from literally all over the world was totally unexpected and our fan mail grew day by day. Because there was a need to connect with our fans, this blog was born.
