Travel Blog | The Islands of Hawai'i

Aloha friends! Today on the blog I am sharing my thoughts, tips, and of course photos and videos from our recent trip to the beautiful Hawaiian Islands. 

We spent two weeks visiting the different islands as a way to celebrate our marriage and honeymoon. (I was also looking forward to the MANY photo ops…let’s be honest!)

We decided to spend a week in the island of Oahu so that we can have time to relax and for Kevin to be introduced to some of my favorite spots (it was his first visit there). We spent the second week on Norwegian Cruise Line’s ‘Pride of America’ ship exploring the islands of Maui, Kaua’i, and Hawai’i (aka the Big Island). 

Whether you’ve visited Hawaii and experienced its beauty, or planning a future trip, this blog post will hopefully provide some helpful insight.  There's quite a bit of info to share and for you to digest, especially during the cruise, so please refer to the Norwegian Cruiseline's Daily Newsletter I uploaded for you to use as a guide to plan a future cruise! The link to these newsletters will be listed at the bottom of the post for each cruise day.

Legacy Golf Resort | Inspired Wedding Shoot

Legacy Golf Resort | Inspired Wedding Shoot

Hi blog readers! I am beyond excited to share with you all some photos from an inspired wedding shoot that took place last month!

I got engaged to the love of my life (Kevin) last August, and although we decided to elope, we wanted to celebrate our love with family and friends somehow. The thought of an inspired shoot with me as the bride, Kevin as the groom, our friends posing as bridesmaids and groomsmen, as well as family posing as guests came to mind. 

How to eliminate fake smiles during your session

How to eliminate fake smiles during your session

Kids are completely unpredictable. They can be so adorable and easygoing and laughing uncontrollably one minute, and the next minute, turn that charm off completely! They will typically smile for you all day long until you put them in front of a camera; then they freeze up like a deer in headlights. We want to avoid the gritted teeth and bug-eyed forced smiles during our session.

MacKenzie's Cake Smash Session | Phoenix, Arizona

MacKenzie turned three a few weeks ago, and when her mom asked me to do the cake smash session, I was happy as a clam! I have seen this sweet little girl grow each year and she just gets more and more beautiful! MacKenzie is so sweet, and I love hearing her talk - she has the cutest voice! She is a photographer's dream because she knows how to blow kisses and pose on queue! Love you Mac!
