Biography
Inspired by Organic moments and happenings. Family, friends, landscapes. Fashion, art, creativity... These are what make up this collection of photos by Jade Okimoto.

Hawaiian Island born and raised, Jade relocated to Los Angeles immediately after high school to pursue study in the Fashion Industry. After obtaining a degree at The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, she went on a quiet quest of finding her true purpose and talent. It is in this quest she went back to childhood memories...


Since childhood, photography has been a creative outlet for Jade. Days were spent posing friends and relatives in portraits and fashion shoots against backgrounds of natural Hawaiian settings. Taught and raised by a family of Hula dancers, surfers, fishermen, farmers, and artists- it seems only natural to cultivate these aspects and fuse them into her own art. At about age 8, Jade got her first camera. It was a toy camera that printed a Ninja Turtle character in the corner of each photograph. Nothing seemed more exciting than a photo of her brother and hula sister, posing in front of a bougainvillea bush with a Michael Angelo waving in the background! From this point on, 'experimenting' with photography is an understatement...

Today Jade enjoys shooting events, portraits, head shots, landscapes, and other unique art forms. Her style ranges from soft and natural, to raw and industrial. Available for your next wedding, business convention, or family portrait- Inquire now about packages and rates offered!
