As part of our big migration east from Honolulu to Charlotte, Brian and I were fortunate to be able to stop and visit our families on the way in both Phoenix and Ohio. During the Ohio portion of the trip, I got to take some senior portraits of my nephew, Isaak. He’s an all-around super kid- funny, helpful, courteous, and upbeat, just to name a few. On top of all of that, he’s kicking some ‘a’ on the football field too! :)
At the end of the afternoon’s shoot, my other nephew, Jacob, also got in on the action.
These two cousins are good buds, and they were a blast to photograph.
Recognize that sweet ride? This Scout is the same car we used to take some pictures with the boys’ other cousin, Piper! :)
Sooo, it’s been awhile! I took a bit of a hiatus, because we moved! We said goodbye to Honolulu and hello to Charlotte, NC! It was bittersweet, because we will definitely miss the island life, but we’re glad to now be closer to family. Thankfully, before we left, I got to meet my friends’ sweet newborn, Jack! What a precious bundle! Of course, I had to snap some photos. :) We’ll miss you, Bonnie and DA!
Another beautiful Makapu’u wedding! The couple was fortunate in having so many family members who were able to be in town to attend. There was an abundance of love for Tori and Jeremy, and you could tell that Tori and Jeremy had an abundance of love for each other. Jeremy even teared up a couple times; it was very sweet.
Aren’t these girls’ dresses fun?! Tori made them!
Isn’t that the most darling name?! I just love it, and such a perfect fit for this darling girl! Hadley, her parents, Sarah and Dustin, and I had a great time at Ala Moana Beach and Magic Island. There was a lot of bird chasing, splashing, swinging, digging, etc. My kind of fun! :) Enjoy the pictures of this spunky and energetic sweetheart who just turned 3!
Iris and James came from the Bay Area to get married here in Honolulu where Iris grew up. They chose the Waioli Tea Room & Chapel for their venues and what great choices! The chapel was very cozy and intimate and the reception hall of the tea room was bright and airy. They were surrounded by a spirited group of family and friends and it seemed a good time was had by all!
Hey Everyone! So, if you were wondering why I haven’t posted anything in a couple months, it’s because I had a baby! His name is Clayton Barley Wise and we couldn’t be more in love! I took a break from shooting gigs on my time off, but you know I couldn’t resist snapping some shots of Clay! Here are a few of my favorites starting with his announcement that I photographed and also designed:
one day old
one week old
napping with G-ma
this knitted blanket was made by Clay’s Great Grandma Olive
one month old
Isn’t that prayer print above the changing table beautiful?! My talented sister, Chelsea, behind the online shop, My Sweet Delight, designed it. If you’d like to get one for yourself (or a print with a different phrase), go check out her site here.
