Sakura Season

How could I be a photographer in Japan and NOT view the Sakura trees. Okinawa isn’t as spectacular as mainland. Maybe one day I’ll make it to mainland to view them in full bloom in the spring. *Maybe*

Okinawa’s blossom season is earlier and just like the states (California where I am from)… I’ve heard it just takes one storm and the season is over… so I wanted to catch at least a glimpse of them before that happened since it is still very much rainy and cold.

The blossoms start north and move their way down the island. I decided after a tiny bit of Instagram research to go to Mt. Yaedake which is about 1 1/2 hrs away from me. A little apprehensive with decent car ride and a not-so-travel-friendly toddler I still decided to go on Thursday. Much to my surprise Corwin did great. She was seriously the perfect travel buddy and maybe our days of exploring this island together are just beginning. I went to Mt Yaedake because most of the viewing happens from the seat of your car and that was annoying and easier at the same time. Being the driver, wanting to capture moments but being a lone was a little tricky. Thankfully everyone is up on the mountain to view the beautiful trees so people are kind when you pull off to the side of the road or stand in the middle of the road for a moment to capture a picture.

Completely “Okinawa”: Orion beer lanterns and sparse Sakura trees… and roads that look like single car roads but NOPE it is a two car lane actually.

It was such a pleasant day. I am not going to lie it would have been even more fun with a friend… maybe next year we will have some friends and we can adventure together. Moments like yesterday make a me a tad more homesick but I just have to give it time. I am SO thankful I have this little blessing to join me. Seriously she is just a gift I will NEVER take for granted!

The cutest ice cream stand up the mountain. Cherry flavored ice cream was delish!
Probably the most colorful part of the whole drive

Now Serving Okinawa

We are HERE! I am ready to book session in Okinawa after the long process of “settling”. Here is a peak at my first session on the island. These clients had a great location in mind and I really enjoyed capturing the new landscape! … But what location isn’t perfect here in Oki. A gorgeous sweet family it just made it so much better!

Chicken & Gold

One of my lovely 2019 Brides asked if I thought it was a good idea to do her engagement session at the local Chick-fil-a where she works? Of course I said it was a brilliant idea :). It was so wonderful having the place to ourselves and the gorgeous yummy light coming in through the drive-thru widows… I was just in love. We finished off our time together at one of my favorite fall locations… I had so much fun with them. I am really looking forward to their Nov. wedding!  Enjoy!

What Started It All

This Spring I offered to capture my good friend and her little girls close to Mother’s Day. Now having my own daughter I see how Boys & Girls are different in a whole new way. One thing I have learned (from observation & experience) is Girls really respond well to intentional time. What a treat it was for these girls to dress up and look so stunning along side their amazing Mama. It was a pleasure to capture these sweet candid moments for ALL of them. I always hope that my images are cherished by generations to follow… and these almost seem a little bit more powerful. These are future Mothers and Wives to the next generation. Thank You for allowing me to be the one to capture these moments for you!
