I missed the bulk of PCS-ing families this year being off island for 6 weeks. Okinawa just begs to be photographed. And families want evidence of their time here. Last year, one client hadn’t had a family session in 9 years… and they had a 5 year old. Think about that. Nothing like a PCS deadline to get a session on the calendar.

This family is no different. They’ve been here for six years and had their first baby. They wanted something Okinawan but not beach. Katuren castle is my go-to castle. You’ll see why!
