Hello and thank you for visiting my website!

My name is Megumi Ito Bacher. I’m a photographer, visual artist, and mother of two. 

I’m originally from Tokyo where I spent my formative years (I am fluent in both Japanese and English). 

I then moved to Los Angeles in 1998 and studied photography at Santa Monica College. 

Photography has always been an important part of my life and my family's life. My grandfather, who was also a photographer, captured many great moments of my childhood and I’ve always loved being able to revisit those moments through photographs which, with time, might have otherwise been forgotten.

Now that I have children of my own, I love documenting their lives and responding to their questions about their parents and grand parents while they browse through our family photos. In this way, photographs can perfectly capture a moment in time which creates a wonderful lasting memory for generations to come and to bond over. 

My goal is to professionally capture those special moments and memories for you, giving you lasting photographs that you, your family, and your friends may enjoy and cherish always.
