Baby on Board
BABY ON BOARD – A shoot with my dear friend Carolyn and her husband Jameson, to announce that they are expecting!
Ironically, this was completely unexpected for them. Carolyn is actually moving back to San Diego after a 2 year stint in American Samoa, and with only one month left to go before her big move, she’s got more baggage! A little one is on its way, and Carolyn and Jameson are very excited to welcome the biggest change in their lives yet.
We’ve been talking about ideas for photos to announce their baby, and everything seemed so cheesy. There’s just no way around it! I forfeited any hope that the photos wouldn’t turn out tacky and instead went along and made fun of it. Cheesy pregnancy idioms? Bring it on!
And it turned out perfect.
Jameson is quite frankly, the best surfer in American Samoa. And Carolyn is our resident “it” girl. It seemed only appropriate to glamorize these two defining traits, and make what we could of it. Carolyn brought the tiniest flip flops she could find, Jameson brought his surfboard, and we played around on the beach at Fatumafuti and Alega.
Thanks so much to Gabby for helping me out with this shoot!
Love these two so much!
Keep Calm. Wander On.
Another session with Kelley and Alden.
This glowing mom-to-be is due to give birth any day now, and she’s making pregnancy look like a piece of cake!
8 MAY 2017 One of my favorite things about art is art supplies. I adore looking at them, using them (obviously) and now making them! I’m currently obsessed with the watercolor medium—how amazing it makes everything look, the way the paint flows wherever the water...
Getting caught up with blogging; Scott visits me in American Samoa, and a weekend trip to Samoa. Life on the fringes is the life for me!
15 MAY 2017 I love long weekend getaways. These little trips are lifesavers. I’ve booked my tickets for a long weekend adventure, island hopping to Samoa. It’s still a couple of weeks away, but I haven’t been back there since last year, so I’m excited to go and eat...
Friday night “you me, me you” time with my favorite person in the world. Now that we’re mobile, we can start having date night on the road again!
I love jazz and brunch—two very exceptional things on one playlist.
Last year at the Samoana Jazz and Arts Festival as the official photographer. Music and talent by the water.
