I never considered myself a flower child, but one might think that growing up in the era which I did and parents of the Hippie era that might be possible. Even though they are both incredibly artistically talented and probably enjoyed that time as much as anyone living in it I'm not sure I would ever call them full fledged Hippies. I think all the Hippies became the Yuppies that everyone hated, my parents never went that route.
Here are a few photos of Mami I took in the Aoyama area in Tokyo, Japan. She has the free spirit and party girl mentality somewhat reminiscent of the hippie era. I really enjoy working with people that are free spirited and never take this kind of stuff serious because it shows in every photo and it looks great.
