This little girl has to be one of the most adorable little girls ever. I was pretty excited when her momma told me the theme of her birthday party. They were doing a Guam theme since she was born on Guam. She mentioned that she wanted to do her session with latte stones and that she was building her party around the plumeria flower.
Latte stones are unique to Guam and the Marianas Islands. They are pillars that were used as support to ancient houses and are unique in their two piece construction topped with a capstone. You can still find real latte stones throughout Guam and the Marianas Islands. They are pretty magnificent when you think about their size and how the Chamorro people were able to construct the latte stones and their houses.
I found out from a friend that there were little latte stones at the Government of Guam Complex so I went to check those out. They were super cute little latte stones. Then I was off to check out the latte stones in Inarajan, Guam. I found some plumeria trees while turning around near the latte stones so it seemed like the perfect spot!
Now it was time for her session! She wore the cutest plumeria dress and plumeria headband while I photographed her under the plumeria trees. And check out the awesome sign her momma put together all on her own. I was so impressed! She later changed into her cute tutu and her onesie. Her momma did an amazing job making her tutu as well. Every little detail from her Guam seal headband to her plumeria necklace and her onesie with the island of Guam and plumerias worked so perfectly together.
It was such a pleasure working with this adorable birthday girl and her momma!!
