The Jungle Side of Okinawa

Family of four photo session at Okinawa's Southeast Botanical Gardens by Alison Bell, Photographer

Another pre-PCS final family photo session! Its that time of year. Okinawa begs to be photographed, for the first time, or the fifth, before PCSing off island.

Shoot, I even have my own final family session scheduled for this Friday with Heather Johnson Photography. Bless her because I might be a bit particular… ha!

Danielle and I have worked together multiple times. She wanted something other than the beach. Even though I knew about this path of palms at Southeast Botanical Gardens, I had never seen it, much less photographed it before this session!

I was excited to finally try it out. It’s gorgeous! I’m going to miss all these palms.

The brothers are 5 and 18months. Little bro wanted nothing to do with being contained, directed, or otherwise. If you follow me on Insta, you may have seen my video of mama toss the bubbles that wouldn’t work toward me!

After 11 years of photographing families all over the world, I've realized my clients aren't printing their images. We go through all this work to get dressed, coordinated and then let those photos die on the hard drive.

No more!

There's nothing easy about family photos but I'm here to help you with every step from what to wear to printed in your hands whether thats an album or wall art. I want you to Make your people the rock star of your house!

You'll be reminded of what really matters every day when you see the giant prints of your crew laughing on your walls every. single. day.

Currently stationed in Virginia Beach, Virginia photographing families all over the Hampton Roads area from Suffolk, Norfolk, Chesapeake and the Eastern Shore all the way to Portsmouth and Elizabeth City!

I find joy in chaos. The louder, the better! I'm a USMC spouse, South Carolina native, recovering homeschool mama of a 4 boy circus. They've taught me the most important facet of family photography: KEEP IT FUN!
