Rio is a wiener dog.  No Joke. At least when it comes to playing soccer!  My husband and I are coaching her team and I have to say, it is awesome! I love all of the kids on her team as they are so cute!  During the games Rio is usually facing the wrong way, at least one kiddo is sitting, and there are at least two more who are just chatting it up with each other on the field.  It is super cute!  If you have a little one who is around 3/4 get them into soccer, you will totally see what I am talking about. It’s good comic relief and she gets her exercise on!

Of course me being a photog, I just had to do her soccer pictures and I absolutely love the way they turned out! I love the sun behind her as its a good symbol of the fire I know she has within her.

Not your average soccer picture, she looks fierce, sassy, and fun, that is who she is now. These pictures totally capture her personality.  Parents, you want a non traditional picture of your kiddo?
oh, and that black mark on her hand, its her cutie mark!

Landon, Landon, Landon. What.a.little.cutie!  These pictures crack me up, look at his hair and there is one where he is chewing on his sock –  To precious!  So what is Landon up to nowadays?  He can pull his little body up (all of those baby push ups finally paid off! ) he can clap,  and loves to wave!  Of course he can do much more than what I am posting about her, those are the few things I saw during our session.

ok mister Landon, time to get your baby squats and baby situps on so you can start walking soon!

I can’t believe Nicholas can stand on his own (for a few seconds!) He is growing up so fast 🙁  We were finally able to schedule a session outside and it was such a gorgeous day for this little man’s 9 month portraits!

I really enjoy seeing Nicholas grow before my eyes! And, being able to photographically document his journey!  Happy 9 Months Nicholas, next time, I hope to catch him taking a few steps!

Christine has been a long time friend of mine, we met while I was working as an Esthetcian in Tacoma several years ago and as luck would have it, her daughter in law, Amanda, is expecting another baby! I was super excited as I had just made tulle skirt (60 yards of tulle!) and I was dieing to try it out! Amanda came in to the studio and was pampered by my “glam squad” and had such a fun time during her Maternity Photoshoot!  Can I just say, I LOVE this skirt and Amanda looks so beautiful in it!  Congrats to Amanda and her family on the newest addition to their family!

I recently went to Kauai and I was so fortunate to be able to do a maternity session while I was there. I LOVE these images, this momma to be is gorgeous and to be able to shoot on the beach in the morning was phenomenal!
I met this mom at Hanalei Beach resort while hanging out at the pool and it turned out she was just talking about finding a photographer to do her maternity pictures, how fortuitous :).  We planned to meet at sunrise and it was so worth it!

Congrats to the parents and brother to be! Mahalo nui loa!
