Double Trouble – Okinawa Photographer
I’ve been very fortunate that my dear friends here in Okinawa have not only been supportive behind the scenes of this photography adventure, but also stepping up to schedule sessions and actually put their money where their support is! So grateful for these amazing friends to trust me to get that elusive holiday card photo.
Since we are on crunch time over here in Okinawa to not only order the cards, but hope they make it to the island before the holidays then get them sent back off to the states we have to do photos ASAP. Two families were willing to double up on location for me so we could get both of their photos done in time. Of course this was also the day that the winds decided to pick up and blow everyone’s hair all around too, but luckily they were all troopers and we had a nice big building for a barrier.
I love this red building and it’s a perfect back drop for photos.
What I love is that they wanted the card photo, but also willing to get a little silly in the process too. Life is too short to be serious all the time!
Eileen and I always get in trouble with our kids because whenever we get together we end up talking, and talking, and talking and talking! Love this lady so much.
Of course my 2nd family had to get in for some photos too! They are like an extension of our own family and so incredibly happy that we’ve met them.
Lucky for me they are also one of the funnest families I know too so they were willing to play along with me when I wanted to do some fun photos with them too. Anyone that knows them knows that Eric is normally sporting all 3 children on his body when he’s home while Chris is out getting nails done, eyelashes done or just having some general closet time in her room! Lucky for me they were down with this next photo and even brought some of their own props!
Makes me laugh hysterically every time I see this! And of course I have other ideas brewing in my head for my next session when they’re willing to be my guinea pigs!
Some of my favorite photos during sessions are the unposed, candid moments. And the ones that although look posed, are just happenstance and turn out even better than the formal photos!
I still can’t thank them enough for letting me practice and use their families as guinea pigs. I so appreciate their confidence in me!
