I think the theme of May is, “I wish I knew you earlier!” Summertime is PCS season here on Okinawa and at most military bases. I seem to meet a ton of awesome people right before they leave the island! It kinda shows you how long I’ve been here – 3.5 years this summer. Way too many awesome people that I’ve had to say goodbye to.
This particular couple, Kailie and Nate, go to my church (Koza Baptist Church), and they’re some of those awesome people! They asked me to take pictures at Cape Zanpa where Nate proposed. I had so much fun, except for the part where I got up on a wall to take pictures of the family on the edge of the cliff. Um, have I ever told you, I’M afraid of heights, but I’m even more afraid of people near high places. Plus, the doggies were getting SO close to the edge! I was freaking out!!! Anyway, I really enjoyed this shoot, and I hope you do too! 🙂
Now I know where the term “baby blue” really comes from! Usually babies have blue eyes when they’re born, and when they have blue eyes, they are just breathtaking! 🙂 check out this beautiful baby girl’s baby blue eyes.
I LOVE MY JOB. I get to share special moments with families that just overflow my heart with so much love. I have a major soft spot for babies which I think grew when I went to the Philippines. Yesterday (Friday, February 24, 2012) at 7:51pm (Japan Time), Gunner was born to Jaime&Travis 🙂 I stopped by the hospital real quick so I could meet the little man, as well as, grab some hospital pics.
First of all, I have never seen a dad as happy as Travis! He opened that door with the biggest smile on his face. Proud daddy 🙂 Sigh. That baby took my breath away with his major cuteness. He will definitely be a heartbreaker. There is so much love in this little family already. And Jaime looks amazing after having a baby the day before. She looks beautiful and happy and ready for mommy-hood.
The miracles of babies will always confound me, and it will probably last until I have my own children. Stay tuned for more pictures of Gunner – we’ve got a newborn session coming up!
