i watched three harry potter movies today. THREE. 🤦🏽♀️
on the other hand, i got a lot of my 2019 materials designed today (yay!) so tomorrow i'll be finishing up editing and be caught up for .2 seconds before tomorrow's shoot ✨
Going to bed with a grateful heart. So thankful for my family and families I am blessed to spend time with and create memories with, to genuinely laugh and, sometimes, cry with. If this is you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. I might be tired at times or have a lot on my plate, but truly at the end of the day I am incredibly grateful to have a job that allows me to meet and create with so many wonderful people. .
Sometimes I get the question about my friends or family members booking with other photographers and whether that makes me upset or not. The answer is: No, Never! I am a firm believer that God brings exactly the clients to me that he wants me to have. I realize that my style is not what every single human is looking for and I am completely okay with that. I'd be lying if I said I don't get a teeny bit sad, but I always go back to my belief: those people that I am privileged with photographing are the perfect people for me, and intended for me by God. And sometimes, it's just not meant to be. No hard feelings at all. .
I will also say though, I find I am closer to people that I have photographed. Something about photographing ignites this place in my heart with a special love for these familes, couples, individuals. .
Being a photographer is truly a gift from above, and the only reason I am able to so this is because God gave me that gift, and you can bet I don't want to waste it. He'll be getting the glory for it all. Alright, I could keep going, but just know I love every single one of ya and if you've ever chosen me and given me the privilege of photographing you or you and your family, THANK YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH. ❤
When I spend 20 minutes editing a photo just to have IG crop off the best parts 😭😂 Ray + Cait were so freaking cool. They wanted to get married in the lush jungle with crazy mountain backdrops and we did it 🙌🏽 Elopements are my fav
Had the bestttt time with these AZ cuties today!!! I swear fall more in love with Arizona every time I come here!! 🌵😍 Side note: Screw the Instagram crop. All you photogs out there...can I get an amen?!! Let’s start a petition or something to change this! 😅
Loved by two mommies 💞 Kaiya wasn’t feeling me in the beginning 🤣 & Kaliko with the big smiles 😁

These two lovebirds 💕 are super troopers! Let me start off by saying that Tosha grew up here in the islands 🌺 and made her way to Canada 🇨🇦 It was in Canada that she met Bryan, fell in love 🥰 and is now blissfully engaged to her soulmate! Traveling back to the islands both Bryan & Tosha wanted to show their love & excitement with a fun loving engagement session, at their favorite beach.
Admiring the works of Haku-maker @ocean_dreamerr Tosha beautifully wears this gorgeous fresh Lei-Po’o (flower crown). Bryan was smiling ear-to-ear seeing how excited his fiancé was to be crowned by such beauty!
Ok - so the reason why these two are troopers: there were 3 big rain clouds surrounding this beautiful beach & we were excited that the 1st 🌧 missed us by about a Mile, then the 2nd 🌧 came & got us... then we noticed a 3rd.. it approached as soon as we were finishing up!
This shot was just as the clouds ⛅️ opened up & sunshine ☀️ finally appeared... you can see how happy these two are to see & feel some sunshine! .
Mahalo Kahi of @sustainablecoastlineshawaii for leading an enlightening evening of perspective-shifting conversations, Danielle of @drinkgazoz for fueling us, and our collective for continuing to inspire our community.
