A Dragon Boat Racer and Some Gentlemen – Newport, Rhode Island Family Photographer
I met Jodi through a running group formed in Okinawa. Unfortunately I didn’t get to know her very well since we lived all of 10-12 miles apart, but in Oki that’s like another world away some days! I knew the little bit I had been around her that we were a bit of kindred spirits in the sarcastic, laugh your way through life kind of way. After seeing Michelle and John’s photos, I was so thrilled when she contacted me about doing family photos before we both left the island. Jodi and Michelle were on the dragon boat team together so they are definitely both some tough cookies! We planned for one of those iffy May days in Okinawa and fortunately the weather cooperated until right when we got in our cars to leave – then the rain clouds opened!
I absolutely loved working with Jodi and her family. They are fun and spontaneous and we all laughed the entire session. I have to admit I was a bit intimidated going in because with 3 boys, 2 of them tween/teen, I wasn’t sure if they would be into the ideas I had in mind. Not only were they into it, but they put their own comedic spin on mine and their mom’s ideas – win/win for all of us! Jodi and Charlie are raising some awesome gentlemen and they should be so proud.
Hopefully they are now soaking up the California sun and surf in SoCal! Thank you again Jodi, Charlie and family!
