One Fit Mama – Okinawa Photographer
Delilah asked me about a year ago if I took boudoir/beach photos and this was quite some time before I even considered going into business. I said I could try to wing it, but it was something I had never done before. Fast forward to right after I “opened my doors” here in Okinawa and I happened to see her at the post office and she said she wanted to schedule boudoir/fitness/beach photos. I warned her I had absolutely no experience, but lucky for me she had confidence in me still and wanted to schedule them!
I knew Delilah from meeting her through our running group we had here on island. She was young, had a rockin’ body and just plain beautiful so yeah, this old lady had some pangs of envy for sure! In addition to all that though, she is just a genuinely nice person and a fantastic mama to her 2 little ones. She takes that “job” very seriously and loves those munchkins to pieces. Of course after you scroll down you would never know that 2 babies came out of that body just a few years ago! Not to mention when you go out for a ladies night or weekend with her you are destined to have a good time whether you planned on it or not.
I must admit that we were both nervous. We had ideas in mind of what we thought we wanted to do, but weren’t quite sure how those would execute in real life. I had never done this and neither had she. As you can see from the above she is an absolute natural at posing. There was so little direction on my part aside from “let’s try this…” and she “popped it and locked it” so to speak!! Haha! These top two were the first in the series and we both knew good things were going to happen after that!
Seriously?! Again, I merely showed her a pinned photo of what I thought we should do and in about 5 seconds she had the pose, sultry eyes and hands exactly where she needed them! I was pumped that she also brought a kimono. It was perfect for showing off her fantastic tattoo.
Before we left the beach and Hamahiga Island I wanted to try just a few more since we found our groove! I put my trusty 50mm lens on that was my first love and we got some close ups. In my head I just wanted to try a couple of different things to see if it would turn out. Holy Moly these ended up being my favorites hands down!
Thank you, thank you Delilah for being my first in beach boudoir/fitness! You made it way, way too easy for me!
