About Sumiko Eyears

Every decade of my life has brought something new. I grew up in Fukuoka, Japan. In my 20’s I worked as an international flight attendant and in hospitality before moving to Australia.

My 30’s were spent working in tourism on the Gold Coast before business studies took me to Sydney where I met my husband. With the 30’s came study leading to a web design business.

In my 40’s, a move to Brisbane was followed by becoming a Mum – my darling son is now 14.

I discovered photography in my 50’s and have been creating beautiful portraits for women and their families ever since.

I have enjoyed all the stages of my life. Now, in my 50’s I feel fortunate to have finally found my passion, what I really want to do for the rest of my life.

I believe age does not prevent us from starting new things. In fact, you may be clear about what you want to do because you may have done a lot of things you didn’t want to do!

I love being a part of someone’s life, even just for a moment – to capture a time when they are truly shining. I look forward to capturing your most beautiful essence right now, in this special over 50’s stage of your life.
