Archive for 'Maternity'

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.

I don’t know when they did it, but the scaffolding at Katsuren has come down!!! I’ve loved Katsuren for a while now, but this is a whole new ball game!

These guys were so fun.  Dad was hamming it up the whole time, Mama couldn’t keep a straight face and that’s the way I like it! Genuine interaction, laughter, joy, connection. We did get some endearing looks for Mama too!

Its not very often I bring an umbrella to a session. We met in the parking lot in the rain. Thankfully it was light and didn’t come back until we were finished! We did not have time to reschedule :)

I love it when couples decide not to find out the gender of their baby.  Its really exciting. I can’t wait to see if baby is a he or a she!

This mama almost joined the Four of A Kind Club, but would you believe, these three boys are going to have a baby SISTER?! Really! I can only imagine what her life will be like.  Our boys are the same ages, so this made for a fun (and sweaty) time.

It had just down poured before we started. The humidity and sticky hair was off the charts. #loveoki

This smart mama contacted me from the States. She would be visiting while her husband was on Okinawa for a UDP. My first thought was “What if the weather is bad?!” We can only reschedule so many times during 7-10 days! I was nervous for our session but it was beautiful!

If you’re visiting Okinawa, contact me for your family photos!
