I was going through some pictures on my computer and I happened to come across this handsome little guy. Then I remembered, OH! (1) I was going to blog about these and (2) I was going to print and get them hung up. Well, eight months later I’m checking off my list. So, I thought some more. If I hadn’t set aside the time to take these pictures, I wouldn’t have any pictures of this special milestone to do anything with! Sometimes life can get pretty busy and time will pass us by. Photographs freeze time and give us the opportunity to remember, share, laugh and even cry about those specific moments in time. Take lots of pictures, get pictures taken. Make it a tradition to get family portraits done once a year. Whether it’s on Thanksgiving, or someone’s birthday, do them for your Christmas cards. Families are always updating and what better way to document that, than with photographs!
What are little girls made of ? Sugar and spice and everything nice… And this little sleeping beauty was no different. She slept through her whole session. As sleepy as she was, she still managed to give me a smile here and there.
I loved this photo shoot for Hau’oli by Hali Jewelry! The weather was perfect, the location was beautiful and the client was AWESOME! Hali is a fun, sweet person and it’s never a dull moment with her. The evidence… the seaweed shot, there’s a behind story to laugh about! As a fan of Hali’s jewelry, I was excited when she asked me to do the photo shoot. Her jewelry is everything beach inspired and a perfect way for every beach lover to carry a piece of the ocean with them. To find out more about her jewelry visit www.facebook.com/hauolibyhali.
I had such a fun time photographing the toddler line for Wonder Kid Clothing. These little guys and gals did wonderful! Especially on a hot sunny day and towards the end being hungry and tired, they still pushed on. I was so proud of them! Wonder Kid Clothing was started by a mother of a toddler who was unable to find what she was looking for in toddler clothing. Now, using 100% certified organic shirts that are lead and phthalate free, she makes custom design shirts for the whole family.

No family session is ever the same. Each family brings a little something different to their portrait session. Whether they are quiet and reserved, loud and outgoing. Small or large, a newly started family or a well established one. But being the observer behind the camera, I’ve noticed one thing they all have in common… LOVE. Which is one of the reasons whey I enjoy photographing families. It’s an awesome feeling to see how the families I photograph show their love for each other. This family session was no different. It was like they were out on a days adventure and I went along for the ride, just photographing their daily interactions with each other. They were so much fun and I’m glad that was asked to capture these sweet memories for them!
