And Baby Makes Three :: Okinawa Newborn Photographer

It was finally time to say "hi" to Amber & Sam's newest addition to their family. He is a beautiful newborn boy with the fairest hair and skin I've ever seen. He was quite curious when I first arrived, but he quickly fell into a deep slumber once his tummy was nice and full of milk. I don't think any photographer could go wrong photographing this family, they simply always look beautiful! Congratulations again to the new parents!

A big thank you also to Susie over at Penguin's Place for making the custom designed newborn hat. Please visit her site if you are interested in commissioning her for custom work.

Becca & The Olsen Boys :: Okinawa Family Photographer

The Olsen boys were the perfect combination of attitude and adorable! These little twins had so much personality, it made me smile working on the pictures :)  And wow Becca, how do you do it all and stay so beautiful?!? I truly love all the images of the boys, they did so great!

OMG...this photo cracks me up every time I see it, LOL. 
I got this picture after dancing like David Hasselhof and doing some lame karate!

Hall Newborn :: Okinawa Newborn Photographer

Meet sleeping beauty! Isn't she just lovely? I think every newborn photographer had one of those longest-session-ever type shoots and this one was no exception. But when sleeping beauty finally drifted into dreamland, you couldn't help but gaze in wonderment and admire her exquisite loveliness. Congratulations to the Hall family, she is amazingly beautiful!

The Kuesters :: Okinawa Family Photographer

What a handsome family! It was a pleasure photographing the Kuesters and I was extra delighted to photograph some older siblings. Between a tween and a teenager, it was fun documenting their personalities. These brothers will soon transform into young men before you know it, leaving behind their boyish ways. I hope you enjoy them!

Personal Work :: B&W Full Body Shots

Here is another series of my Full Body Environmental Compositions. Please note that these are not client sessions and are solely for me. Because I was indoors, I used a wide angle lens, which produces completely different images and feelings from my normal portrait lenses. These excises are really fun for me as I get to explore some different styles from my usual work. Enjoy!

1st Newborn of 2012 Lester Naval Hospital :: Okinawa Newborn Photographer

It's quite an honor to be able to photograph the first newborn of 2012! The Okinawa Enlisted Spouses Club asked me to participate in their New Years Basket giveaway for the first newborn parents at Lester. They sponsored the giveaway buy purchasing a gift certificate for a newborn session. Congratulations to the lucky parents Ryan and Amanda! I hope you enjoy these first photographs of your newborn boy!

Personal Work :: Full Body Shots

Happy New Year...this is my first post for 2012! I had a rough start this year as my family and I were all sick over the holidays and into the new year, but we are all back to normal now. I've joined a small group of photographers with whom I will be working mainly on full body shots, no crops. This is actually harder than it sounds, but very rewarding and fun as I learn so much every assignment. The images below are different from my client sessions as they are for practicing purposes only and solely for me.
