I love love love when folks come back! I think its particularly with our transient military lifestyle. We’re not in one place long enough to build multi-year friendships. But these were just 6 months behind us in arriving on Oki. Also, we both love the name Reid :D  family, child, murasaki mura, okinawa, japan

Last spring had an influx of families squeezing in a last photo session before leaving the beautiful waters of Okinawa. For these guys, it was also their first! family, beach, water, blue, rocks, kids, fun, photography, photographer

I am determined to catch up this month on the last 8 months. Fall is the busy season, but what was my excuse in July?!

This in-home newborn session was a dream – once I got there! I’m typically good with directions and but I had to make a few calls to find them :) . But the view from their apartment was AH-mazing! And who has heard of a wrap around porch in an apartment?! The perks of living off base! Mama had great style in her house and made for easily gorgeous images as you can see -

This was my most prepared mama. She contacted me in the spring for her summer maternity session for something grassy. As it would turn out, complications put her in the hospital with a short leash for 5 weeks! She slept on an L&D mattresses for 5 weeks! The most uncomfortable mattress ever. I’m so glad she was game for doing her maternity photos in the hospital! It was completely different and fun.
