I was honored to photograph this beautiful family with their newborn on Tarague Beach in Yigo. This last year and a half has brought about many changes and highlighted the importance of flexibility and creativeness. Newborn sessions were the most affected sessions this year because of my safety concerns for these precious little humans. With some trust and a stuffed pig to demonstrate how to wrap the baby, these parents were able to get the newborn images they hoped for. It may not have been what we all envisioned but I will forever look back on these times and remember even in chaos there is light and joy.
It's been so great seeing so many newborn babies lately! March was a very busy newborn month. The T family booked an heirloom collection session, which comes with digital images and beautiful heirloom products. I'm excited that this has become a popular collection because photos should really be printed. However, if you're anything like me, you have photos done and you plan to print them, but life gets so busy you never end up getting around to it. The heirloom collection allows clients to pick out their products right after their session and receive them in a weeks time. Baby E was so adorable and squishy. She had the best cheeks! Check out some of my favorites from their session!

It's been a busy start to the year! Lots of newborn babies have come through my studio doors over the past few months. It really is a privilege to be a newborn photographer here on Guam. Oftentimes, I'm the first person outside of parents and nurses/doctors that get to hold and spend time with baby! It's also been great running into my little clients as they grow. Guam is such a small island so your bound to run into everyone! I hope to see these little ones back in the studio for milestone photos! Here are some photos of my newborn photography clients over the first part of 2019.

I'm so grateful that my photography clients have kept me busy this year. Since I haven't had the time to blog much, I figured I'd do a post to include 2018 newborn babies! It's been such an honor to photograph so many babies here on Guam and I'm so excited to continue in 2019. Thank you for your kindness and support!

This is my first ever blogged milestone session! I never actually shared that I moved into a studio in Hagatna, Guam at the beginning of the year. As exciting as it was, it was also tons of work trying to keep up with sessions and figure out how to work with my space. One of the great things is that I now get to do studio children's photo sessions. These are becoming favorites of mine. I really love seeing everything come together and photographing little one's getting into their cake is so much fun! I can't wait to do more cake smash sessions.

Kelli chose a beautiful Guam beach location for her maternity session. This location requires a bit of a walk to get to, but the view is always worth the walk. Her husband was deployed and so we got photos of just her for her session. She had two dresses and I was obsessed with both of them. One was a classy lace dress and the other was the prettiest green color.
I got to meet her newborn baby boy not long after her maternity session. Her husband was able to make it back to meet their baby boy and I was able to capture some family photos of them during their newborn session!
Here are some favorites of mine from Kelli’s maternity and newborn session!
As a Guam Photographer, I do many sessions at Guam's beautiful beaches. I'm always excited to shoot in Guam's beautiful hillside since I don't get to do sessions in the hills as often. Lorenzo and Taylor are active in promoting the Chamorro culture here in Guam. Before having baby Nina'i, you could often find them at Guam’s Valley of the Latte showing off the traditions of the Chamorro culture. I’m sure their baby girl will be joining them there soon!
They recently welcomed their baby girl, Nina’i Guinaiya. Nina’i means “Gift” and Guinaiya means “Love” in the Chamorro language. I can’t think of a more beautiful name for a beautiful baby girl. I usually do newborn photo sessions within the first 2 weeks but we got Nina’i in for her session at 3 weeks old. She did awesome and I was so happy to see her for her newborn session!

After going back and forth with possible locations, Shannon decided on a beautiful Guam beach for her photo session. One of the great things about Guam is that there are so many gorgeous beaches to choose from. This beach isn’t one that I use often for sessions because there’s a little hike to get to it, but it worked out great. Shannon told me that she hiked often so I know this little hike was a piece of cake for her.
You know how people say that expecting mommas glow? Well Shannon was one of those momma’s who had this glow. I think her positive and upbeat energy comes off in her photos as well.
I had so much fun with Shannon and her husband during their photo session. I always love hearing the stories of where people are from and what brought them to Guam. They were such a great couple and I’m looking forward to meeting their baby girl soon!
After what seemed like a marathon of beach maternity sessions at the exact same location, I was really dying to do something in the green grassy hills. Guam has gorgeous beaches so most of my sessions end up being at the beach. Not many people think to do photo sessions in Guam's beautiful hills. I ended up asking my friend and fellow photographer who happened to be pregnant if she'd be willing to do a session with me out in the hills.
We live about 5 minutes away from each other and this location is about 5 minutes away as well so it seemed easy enough. Of course, the rain decided to make things difficult. It poured on the original day we scheduled the session. We settled on a day 2 weeks later and all seemed to be going well with the weather but as I was leaving for the session, it started pouring. Roxanne had scheduled to her make-up that day so there was no turning back.
The rain stopped but that left us with a whole lot of mud and puddles. There was definitely a lot of sliding around. I ended up barefoot and Roxanne's shoe broke by the end of it. At the end of the day, it was a whole lot of fun and I got to do something different than the usual.

The V's family session was done at one of Guam's beautiful beaches that showcases an amazing cliff line. This beach is a favorite of mine because of the rich greens and blues in the ocean. We also did some shots up on the cliff line that provided more gorgeous views of the ocean.
Amber's husband was leaving the island soon so it was important we did these photos as scheduled. It was extremely windy and we even had to run and hide under cover as the rain came in mid session. The entire summer seemed to rain on all of my sessions, but that didn't stop us from getting beautiful photos. .
The V kids were so much fun to work with. The bond between their kids was so great to photograph. By the end of the session, their little guy was taking after me and directing their family poses. I think they have a future photographer on their hands!
