Dane and I each have one sister. Growing up in a family of four, we have both always assumed that someday we would have a family of four as well. I’ve never thought a lot about having a big family… until I met this one. As some of you know, I was incredibly blessed to…

    Such beautiful pictures to go with a wonderful story.  I was lucky enough to have Annie photograph my maternity/birth/newborn pictures for my first baby and she is such an amazing person.  Definitely a wonderful example of the kind of wife/mom I want to be.ReplyCancel

      Ahhhh! I wish I was in Hawaii just so I could get her too! Well… not JUST for that! Haha! But yes- she is so inspiring!ReplyCancel

Is there anything sweeter than a fresh new baby and the excitement that fills the hospital room when the family crowds in to meet her for the first time? No really… Is there? Because if so, I need to start photographing that too! After my first Fresh 48 photo session in Okinawa- I was hooked. The rooms at the Naval…

I got to hold this little lady for the first time almost exactly a year ago. We were at a big Thanksgiving/Friendsgiving Dinner and her mama let me hold her while she ate, and that was it: I fell in love. A year later- I fall more in love at every photoshoot! She has smiles and energy…

I love gender reveals. I’m so glad they have caught on in such a big way (thank you, Pinterest), because I can’t think of a moment that has more anticipation or such a high level of surprise as the moment that a couple sees pink or blue. No matter how sure they are that they know what color icing, balloons,…

    Mindy, we are so honored to have had you be the to capture this special moment for us. You did it fabulously!!!!! We couldn’t be happier with the results! I am so impressed by not only your ability to beautifully capture a moment, but also your tenacity to find the perfect balloons that would stay afloat, and your amazing ability to keep a secret!!!! We are so so grateful for the experience that you made happen for us. There are no words to thank you enough!!!! ❤️ReplyCancel

      It was my PLEASURE!  And the balloon situation has been solved forever now that I’ve discovered this hi-float stuff!!! Congratulations again! Can’t wait to see your little lady!ReplyCancel

I’ve been oh so spoiled when it comes to having beautiful friends who have beautiful babes. In fact, if my friend Leanna hadn’t had such a beautiful baby, I might never have become interested in portrait photography. When I moved to Okinawa and decided I wanted to give this whole photography thing a real go,…

My sweet friend Leslie refers to herself (even on facebook) as “Leslie Momofdudes”. I love it. I always find myself secretly hoping for a little girl someday that I can dress in bubbles and bows, but after spending time with this family, I’ve decided I could get used to being the mom of dudes too….

What can you even say when you get to photograph one of the most beautiful girls you have ever seen? I could just post the photos and you would understand what I mean, but I will add this: Lilie is breathtaking. Even in India. Even. without showering. Even without makeup. Even without hair dryers… Lilie…
