This fam was a joy to work with. JOY. They relaxed and forgot I was there, just how I like it. Kids are always good at cutting the awkward, but these two were particularly good! Did you see my video on Instagram of the little one shaking is bum?? Go see!

This location at the Gala is a favorite for everyone but we were surprised (and I’m sure the other togs were too!) when we were kicked out! The lady was quite nice giving us a heads up that they were closing, but we thought we could just walk around the gate so we brushed it off.

NOPE. There’s no walk around for it. She stood waiting, staring at us and the other folks mid-session.

Also, the Torii itself is roped off, so there was no getting close to it. Thankfully we were a short drive to another beach.

I hope this isn’t my last session there.

We had several weeks of warm Okinawa weather, and this poor March baby got a cold windy day for his pictures! Mama pulled out the Christmas sweater! And despite the layers, his little lip was shivering!

I’m BAAACK!! I took some time off from sessions in January to take a break from editing. I could photograph families all day everyday, but delivering galleries in a timely manner is whole ‘nother animal. I caught up on my blog that was 9 months out of date!

Here’s to hoping that doesn’t happen again.

I was so excited (and maybe a little nervous) to get behind the camera again. Mom worn a gorgeous dress that fluttered beautifully in the wind. Boys had a blast splashing mom and dad in the water! Check out that shot here. 

Mom said that the boys want to do it again! The best!

These two were so sweet, Oki transplants too. We had to reschedule a number of times because of the rainy season, but by the good graces, it held off until we were getting in the car. The sky looks clear, doesn’t it?! Maternity, blue skies, beach, sunset, couple photographer, photography
