Jenny+Justin+Bump = Love. :: Okinawa Maternity Portrait Photographer

First off, I have to tell you that this photoshoot was impromptu!  Meaning that we had set out to do it in the afternoon, but Okinawa’s weather had a different idea.  The rain started up so we decided to reschedule for the following day.  However, an issue arose.  We were hungry.  Thankfully Jenny and Justin are friends so we headed down to Macaroni Grill and had some dinner.  Afterwards, we walk outside, and it’s GORGEOUS.  The light just looked crisp.  I remembered a place to go take pictures, thanks to my friend, Michele (son – Shawn).  Here’s a few of my faves from our scheduled/nonscheduled/postponed, but not shoot 🙂


Project 365+1 :: Day 34 :: “Showered with Love”

We had Jenny’s baby shower, and it was fantastic!  Jenny + hubby are having their first baby, a little girl.  I can’t wait to meet her!  This is my favorite shot of Jenny from the shower because she looks so animated and excited.  She is SUPER happy about getting this signing program so that she can do it with her daughter.  Several of Jenny’s friends from Okinawa are here, joined by her mom via Skype!  It is pretty awesome that nowadays, family members from afar are able to join in on celebrations that they would normally attend (in a perfect world).

Project 365+1 :: Day 25 :: “Fingers&Toes”

This is one of my favorite pictures from my visit to Gunner and Family in the hospital.  Fresh, new baby toes 🙂  Gunner is absolutely adorable, and his parents cannot be happier that he’s finally here.  I get pretty emotional about this little guy because I’ve watched Jaime go from start to finish, and I felt him in her belly (first one that I felt move in the belly).  Congrats Jaime and Travis!  Can’t wait to share his newborn shoot with you too!  🙂

One on the Way :: Jaime&Travis+bump

All week I’ve been anticipating today’s photo shoot.  I was worried about the weather and my capabilities as a photographer (this was my first maternity shoot).  However, my worries were totally unnecessary.  The weather cooperated, and I am SUPER satisfied with the pictures I shot!

Jaime & Travis are expecting their first little one, Gunner.  They are one of the CUTEST couples I’ve ever met, and they are so photogenic and happy.  Thanks Jaime & Travis for a great shoot; I cannot wait for Gunner’s debut!
