Benjamin Miles Spokane Newborn Session

Kelsey and I met after I had been in Okinawa for less than a week. Our husbands fly together, our dogs love each other (for about two minutes before Sydney gets overwhelmed), and we both lived on the seawall and shared a walking/jogging route, so we saw each other regularly. She loves to bake, and…

Here She Glows Teepee Session | Southeast Botanical Gardens Okinawa

From the moment I met Miss Lily, I could envision this “Here She Glows” dress session. We got rained out twice, but the third time was the charm. The ground may have still been wet, but it only added to this gorgeous scene for this sweet session. We held this session only weeks before this…

Baby Ainsley’s Newborn Session

This soft pink & lilac newborn session is what all of my baby girl newborn session dreams are made of. Ainsley’s mom and dad got to Okinawa about a month before we did, so we have known this sweet family for our entire tour. A couple of years ago, her mama and I were carpooling…

Family Photography: Dare I Ever Say Easy?

“He’s still just a little bit cranky,” his mom warned me when we met at the beach. “He got a good nap, so he should be pretty good, and we’ve bribed him with gummies- so we’ll see.” I love family photography. I’ve talked about it before. As much as I love yoga photography and couples…

    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

Smash It Good

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…

Fukushen Gardens Gender Reveal

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,…
