The Jake Ryan Moment – Newport, Rhode Island Family Photographer
You might recognize the dad and daughter from this photo shoot. They made a very special appearance back in February for an awesome themed photo shoot. I felt so honored that Annette not only loved those photos, but also immediately booked me for a tenth anniversary shoot for she and her husband. We coordinated calendars and as luck had it, we were both available on their actual anniversary. We set out for Fukushen Gardens in Naha on a beautiful Saturday morning to capture this special day.
I’m so glad that Annette not only has confidence in me, but that we’ve become friends as well. She has amazing ideas for photo shoots and quite honestly if I were staying in Okinawa then I have a feeling we would be collaborating on many more shoots. I’d love to hire her for her concepts alone! No idea seems to be too big for either of us and lucky for us we both have husbands that reel us in from these ideas!
Annette also wanted to make sure that her kids were in some of the photos as well since, afterall, they were a big part of those 10 years of marriage! They are such a beautiful and great family and as usual, we HAD to get a silly photo in the mix too – it’s not a Paustenbaugh photo shoot without one!
As a child of the 80’s didn’t we all dream of that Sixteen Candles Jake Ryan moment?!! I asked them to do this pose for me and Annette reminded me it was very Jake Ryan/Sam Baker and I have to say it’s pretty perfect!
Thank you so much again Annette and Jason and here’s to many, many more years and many Sixteen Candles moments ahead!
