Satchiko in Kawagoe x JapanLover.Me Store

Hello, hello!

Just sharing this photoset featuring Satchiko modeling our favorite vintage Skajan jackets from Japan Lover Me Store. This set was photographed by my brother Eric, and assisted by yours truly. My cousin Gil also makes an appearance in this special photo series. The location was in Kawagoe, Saitama (known as Little Edo in our area).

Satchiko told me that it’s one of her dreams to become a model. I actually photographed her for Mimi Claire Sweets (she modeled the kawaii decoden cases Claire nee-chan designed) but we didn’t really publish it because we didn’t notice that there were a lot of wrinkles on the costume she wore (kawaii pastel schoolgirl was our peg haha). I knew that it wouldn’t be our last time to work together, so I told my brother Eric to ask Satchiko if she could model our newly released Skajan jackets (we have 50+ waiting to be uploaded, by the way~).

This girl’s energy is so infectious (in a good way, of course) and I love how she sees things in such a bright perspective. Knowing that “modeling” is one of her dreams and seeing her enjoying and being confident in her own skin during the shoot.. I just couldn’t be any prouder (*older sis vibes lolol*). This won’t be our last, and I am very much looking forward to more fun play x work JLM Store shoots with this optimistic gal. 🙂

And without further ado, I would like to present you Satchiko x JLM Store! Enjoy the photos, everybody! ^_^
