Hi there! If you’re new here, I’m Sharon! I feel like I kinda get the best of both worlds with getting to spend my days with my little one and also work a few nights a week to be able to help support our little family. I also am building a photography business and I love it so much! I wear mismatched socks, love Disney, me and my husband see almost every movie that comes out, and we are best friends If you take me out for pasta or give me a cupcake. Check out todays stories for a little day in the life of me! It is super fun and I totally plan to do these more often! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #hawaiiportraitphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotography #Oahuportraitphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #kailuaphotographer #Familyphotography #luckyweliveHI #luckywelivehawaii #momblogger #momswhoblog #clickinmoms #embracechildhood #childhoodunplugged #honoluluphotographer #maternity #introduction #motherhoodunplugged #momtog #photomom #toddlermom #mompenuer #ourcandidlife #blogger #oahumaternity #hawaiiblogger #ilovekailua #aboutme
I made it back to Oahu, and am so excited for all my family holiday sessions coming up !! Sneak peak of this gorgeous family on a gorgeous fall evening here in Kailua #alwaysfeelslikesummer #kailuaphotographer #kailuafamilyphotographer #familyphotography #oahuphotographer #windwardphotographer #oahuportraitphotographer
Little sister getting lots of love 💕
There are a few more spots available for sessions this year, end of October and November! December is already filling up too fast for the holidays ✨family - couples - senior portraits - maternity - portrait ✨ . . Ok done with my ad, back to trying to edit and avoid watching YouTube videos, my biggest distraction temptation! What’s yours?
Today's shopping and errand day comes with a newborn and a two year old... and 2 extra adults!! Hurray for family visiting!! 🤗🤗 a 3 adult to two child ratio is v. nice 🤩 . . . . On another note, to all you mamas, students, multiple job hustlers trying to pay off student loans, or just Hawaii cost of living : : give yourself permission and grace to just let some things go for a little season and be ok. If you know me, you know my hat collection is huge because dry shampoo doesn't work for me and I don't have the time or interest in doing my hair (plus I just love hats), my car's always sandy because sometimes you just gotta get the kids in the car stat (if you know, you know!), and our house isn't the neatest. If you're killing it in one area, the other areas may just have to hold their horses and wait! (I'm talking to you, dishes! :)) Our house may be as clean as it was before kids someday after the kids are older, but for now we are doing our best to embrace this sweet, messy, beautifully orchestrated chaos! 💛 . . . . . . . . . #honoluluphotographer #oahuphotographer #kailuaphotographer #northshorephotographer #kauaiphotographer #mauiphotographer #konaphotographer #hilophotographer #hawaiiphotographer #hawaiihoneymoon #sandiegophotographer #encinitasphotographer #carlsbadphotographer #joshuatreephotographer #29palmsphotographer #redlandsphotographer #claremontphotographer #ocphotographer #sanclementephotographer #orangecountyphotographer #lagunaphotographer #danapointphotographer #mamahood #tuesdayintroductions
Families always ask what they should wear to their session! The answer is that it depends on a few things, including the season, the time of day, and your personal preferences! If you want to talk more about outfit choices, don’t hesitate to ask! #oahufamilyphotographer #oahuphotographer #oahu #hawaii #kaneohe #kailua #honolulu #kaneohephotographer #kailuaphotographer #ig_oahu #mykailua #lifestyle #emotional #storytelling #canon #dearphotographer #militaryspouse #family #children #fun #lifestylecollective #hilife #oahuportraitphotographer #oahumilitaryphotographer #hawaiifamilyphotographer #honoluluphotographer #hikingoahu #dailymotivation

This was a beautiful location to shoot at. There were so many different areas to shoot in. I’m usually secluded to a small area at a location. So this one was a great location to get creative! - Also, @lia.jacobsen.13 ‘s husband @pakalolo_soljah & his band just dropped some new music!

“Let’s take a picture mommy!” How can I say no to this girl? Tonight she tells me about her shiny tooth and how she should put her tooth under the pillow for the tooth fairy to bring her a donut 🍩😂😂😂 I cannot get enough of her imagination. It’s so wild! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #hawaiiportraitphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotography #Oahuportraitphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #kailuaphotographer #Familyphotography #luckyweliveHI #luckywelivehawaii #momblogger #momswhoblog #clickinmoms #embracechildhood #childhoodunplugged #honoluluphotographer #letthembelittle #dailylife #motherhoodunplugged #momtog #photomom #toddlermom #mompenuer #ourcandidlife #blogger #lemonadeandlenses #hawaiiblogger #ilovekailua #imagination

What a fun family session!! This is my most chosen location for 2018! Can’t wait to see which one will be the top for 2019! Any guesses?
You guys! I’ll be on Oahu December 15-19 🖤 I’ll be doing a model call soon!
I gave myself a completely unplanned social media fast this weekend. AKA had a wedding, enjoyed the pumpkin patch and petting zoo with all the grandparents, AND even a hot yoga and Whole Foods mama date! So many great things! So good for my tired soul. . . . . I have lately really put a lot of pressure on myself to be intentional about posting every day and at the right time. But we are so much better equipped to love and serve our families and social media friends at times by allowing ourselves to just take a step back and b r e a t h e a little bit! Whew! Also on a side note, going to feel this yoga class tomorrow. I saw my friend in class doing these "cross fit style squats" and instead of just the regular squats and had to try them, because busy mama= workouts need to be really efficient, right? YOUCH. . . . . . . . . #oahuphotographer #oahuweddingphotographer #oahubride #oahuelopement #oahuelopementphotographer #mauiphotographer #mauiwedding #mauiweddingphotographer #mauielopement #mauielopementphotographer #mauibride #kauaiphotographer #kauaiwedding #kauaiweddingphotographer #kauaibride #kauaielopement #kauaielopementphotographer #koolinaphotographer #kailuaphotographer #honoluluphotographer #honoluluweddingphotographer #bohemianwedding #hawaiielopement #hawaiielopementphotographer #hawaiiwedding #hawaiiweddingphotographer #bohobride #bohowedding #bohemianbride #bohemianwedding

Here's Stella's "how are my mom's Christmas mini sessions not 100% booked yet" face. Save the date for Nov 3rd & 4th for faux hot cocoa fun! Skip Santa and create beautiful memories with no crying involved 😉🎄 AND THERE WILL BE COOKIES! 🍪🍪🍪👌
Just a little preview of what this is! If you haven't seen used/had a viewfinder before, they hold 7 images! You push the button down and it turns the reel to the next photo! There is also a center image that I include the year printed on there to add to the heirloom part of my products! ⠀ ⠀ What do you think? Would you want your photos in one of these? ⠀ ⠀ #oahufamilyphotographer #oahuphotographer #oahu #hawaii #kaneohe #kailua #honolulu#kaneohephotographer #kailuaphotographer #ig_oahu #mykailua #lifestyle #emotional #storytelling #canon #dearphotographer #militaryspouse #family #children #fun #lifestylecollective #hilife #oahuportraitphotographer #oahumilitaryphotographer #hawaiifamilyphotographer #honoluluphotographer #hikingoahu #dailymotivation
Once upon a time a fair maiden became lost in an enchanted forest . . . . Read and see more about my 'spooky dreams' on my blog, link in bio. Such a fun collab with @kahihaefloral @dovesfacepainting @resilientbeauty__ this is a product of their stunning work and I was so happy to be their photographer.
Things that are worth doing - taking a trip to Hawaii, getting photos to remember your trip, announce your pregnancy while you’re at it. Congratulations to Sarah & Johnathan on their upcoming new arrival! . . Getting caught up again this Saturday and staying in pajamas while my own baby kicks me more and more. So many new sessions and weddings to be shared from this month! What are you doing this weekend? . . I can’t get the colors and quality in this to stop sucking on instagram. You can see more previews in my story!
Something tells me they are going to slide into this parenting this just fine... ❤️
hands down, this is one of my favorite fun products! I offer a wide variety of products, for specific reasons. One being I love prints, I love sitting in my living room and looking at prints on my walls. I love when my children bring me an album and we look through it. Viewfinders are awesome because they give me that nostalgic feel from childhood, but with recent photos! That's right, I customize them to include your photos! #oahufamilyphotographer #oahuphotographer #oahu #hawaii #kaneohe #kailua #honolulu #kaneohephotographer #kailuaphotographer #ig_oahu #mykailua #lifestyle #emotional #storytelling #canon #dearphotographer #militaryspouse #family #children #fun #lifestylecollective #hilife #oahuportraitphotographer #oahumilitaryphotographer #hawaiifamilyphotographer #honoluluphotographer #hikingoahu #dailymotivation
Alright, I really keep on meeting THE BEST PEOPLE through photography. GAH! And these two are no different. Not only is S a Reader's Digest published photographer (Whhaaaa? Only slightly intimidating to shoot!), her and D have been married 27 years, and just radiate love. They are two of the lightest and happiest souls I have met!! . . . .We chatted the entire session, and I am kicking myself for not asking them what I love asking couple's that are happily married for a long time. Or, S if you're reading this- - here is your invitation to share your advice with all of us! . . . . One thing I've found is to learn the other person's love language and just really focus on that. I used to really focus on loving on Andrew in the way that I wanted to be loved on, but it turns out our languages are different. His does not happen to be the garbanzo bean brownies I used to make him a lot ;) What have you found has really helped in strengthening your partnership with your love? . . . . . . . . . #dateyourspouse #anniversaryphotoshoot #sandiegophotographer #encinitasphotographer #oahuelopement #oahuelopementphotographer #mauielopement #mauielopementphotographer #bigislandelopement #bigislandelopementphotographer #kauaiphotographer #kauaielopementphotographer #oahuphotographer #oahuweddingphotographer #mauiphotographer #mauiweddingphotographer #hawaiidestinationwedding #hawaiidestinationwedding #hawaiihoneymoon #mauihoneymoon #honoluluphotographer #kailuaphotographer #koolinaphotographer
Being a person is hard sometimes. We are all juggling work, relationships, our own happiness, money, health, fear of taking chances, family, pressure to look good, judgement from quick interactions and assumptions, social anxiety, constant errands and bills and appointments, past baggage, having to clean our houses and take showers, finding meaning in life, bugs, politics, and like we all have to avoid just eating Oreos for every meal somehow. . . Let’s give ourselves a pat on the back for every day we have it together with all that going on
OH this boy. He is an animal lover like his mama. If he had his way, and about 8 more hands, he would carry all his little animal babies with him everywhere. He loves to have everything in line like his dad, and makes small little adjustments with whatever pile of things to whatever he happens to have in front of him (our throw pillows, laundry I just recently folded into neat little piles 😐, his little trucks). I pray he always keeps his big 'ol soft heart and his dad's organization skills! 💛 . . . . . . . . #lifestylephotography #twoundertwo #boymom #grommom #oahuphotographer #mauiphotographer #kauaiphotographer #blablakids #clarkstcollective #kailuaphotographer #waimeaphotographer #laiephotographer #kaneohephotographer #konaphotographer #hilophotographer #claremontphotographer #sfphotographer #laphotographer #sandiegophotographer #encinitasphotographer #honoluluphotographer #orangecountyphotographer

Feeling allll sorts of gratitude the last couple of days. . . . . I met up with sweet @ashleyroseclothing who gifted me with some sweet homegrown apple bananas, homemade pumpkin spice sugar scrub, and some little baby mint and basil plants (girl, whut!??!). Also, if you are a past client of mine, I may have spammed you today/earlier this week asking for a review (sorry guys!). I am really blown away by both all the kind words (I love you guys!!) AND also at how many people responded back so quickly! Man. You guys are so great. . . . . . It just got me thinking about being more intentional about little things that are simple enough to do often but still able to positively affect people's days. You know that feeling, when someone really compliments your hair/top/work/thoughtfulness/etc? Its just a quick n easy, effortless thing that takes a second but can make an impact 💛 I'm starting now in being more intentional about spreading kindness!. . . . . . . . . . #timelesscouples #koolinaphotographer #sandiegophotographer #sandiegoweddingphotographer #losangelesweddingphotographer #laweddingphotographer #encinitasweddingphotographer #carlsbadweddingphotographer #claremontphotographer #joshuatreephotographer #palmspringsphotographer #redlandsphotographer #redlandsweddingphotographer #oahuweddingphotographer #mauiweddingphotographer #kauaiweddingphotographer #hawaiiweddingphotographer #bigislandweddingphotographer #konaphotographer #hilophotographer #honoluluweddingphotographer #kailuaphotographer #koolinaphotographer
Color with color? Totally works and I’m here for it <3 . . These tropical bridesmaids looks are perfect from Erin & Tanner’s wedding day on Kauai! What are you doing on this Tuesday? I’m about to head to a few stores to try and find some halloween accessories for my upcoming creature this year. You can see one of the previous creatures posted now at @rae.hawaii
Camera Bags. First of all there are literally thousands of options, so many it's scary. Do you like a side bag like a satchel or a back pack? How many cameras do you use? Do you bring extra lenses? Are you a mom and also need room for diapers, snacks, and the other 20 million mom things? Are you a landscape photographer and need a spot for your tripod? Figuring out your gear needs is the best start. Make sure you pick something comfy and that will protect your gear. I use House of Flynn backpacks, I love there water resistant material because I'm at the beach for my sessions. I also love their rucksack because I enjoy hiking and there is a spot that I hook my tripod on and I can add extra things in the top pouch that's more for hiking. #camerabags #education #photographer #photography #oahufamilyphotographer #oahuphotographer #oahu #hawaii #kaneohe #kailua #honolulu #kaneohephotographer #kailuaphotographer #ig_oahu #mykailua #oahufamilyphotography #lifestyle #emotional #storytelling #canon #dearphotographer #militaryspouse #fun #lifestylecollective #hilife #oahuportraitphotographer #oahumilitaryphotographer #hawaiifamilyphotographer #clickmagazine #honoluluphotographer
Just yesterday, I had a mother say “I’m not sure I’ll be feeling photo ready so soon after giving birth.” As a mother myself, I know all about those dark circles and bags under our eyes, and how we’re squishy in places that weren’t (so) squishy before, and everything feels like a bit too much because we’re exhausted and our hormones are all over the place. Giving birth even under the best circumstances is physically and emotionally challenging- it’s incredible and worth every moment, but recovery takes weeks and months, not days. And there is great beauty. We may not look like what we’re used to seeing in the mirror, but lighting and posing (and a hint of natural makeup if you choose) as you cuddle and love on your baby will create a gorgeous portrait you and your little one will cherish for a lifetime. You ARE beautiful, and you deserve to be photographed beautifully. #HawaiiNewbornPhotographer #HawaiiFamilyPhotographer #SimplyBabyPhotography #PortraitsofMotherhood #KailuaPhotographer #KailuaNewbornPhotographer #KailuaSmallBusiness #OahuPhotographer #OahuNewbornPhotographer #HonoluluNewbornPhotographer #HonoluluFamilyPhotographer #NewbornPhotographer #MothersandBabies #HawaiiBabyPhotographer #HawaiiPortraitPhotographer #NaturalNewborn #PureNewborn #ForTheLoveofNeutrals #CMPro #NAPCPNewborn #FujiPhotographer #SimplyBaby
So I don't usually recommend snacks during a session, but they are a good backup tool. For example last year at my holiday minis a toddler was being his usual self and wandering around playing, but Mom wanted a shot of them sitting together. So he had some cookies! :) Everyone was happy. Obviously don't bring a shaved ice or Cheetos or chocolate, I mean unless its for me... ;) but something not so messy is good. #tipstuesday #oahufamilyphotographer #oahuphotographer #oahu #hawaii #kaneohe #kailua #honolulu #kaneohephotographer #kailuaphotographer #ig_oahu #mykailua #oahufamilyphotography #lifestyle #emotional #storytelling #canon #dearphotographer #militaryspouse #family #children #fun #lifestylecollective #hilife #oahuportraitphotographer #oahumilitaryphotographer #hawaiifamilyphotographer #clickmagazine #honoluluphotographer #dailymotivation
Joy ❤️
Cheers to strong men and great dads ✨happy Monday with this sweet family moment
This is your Monday morning reminder that you are amazing and you can handle anything!! Have a wonderful day! Meanwhile, check out this stunning mama to be ( which by now is probably already a mama) ❤️🌺🌈
Andrew and I pray together ever morning before we scurry off to the busyness of the day, and one thing that we pray every time is to stay guarded in all things throughout the day and to find our security and identity in Christ. This week I'm also focusing on staying grounded and finding rest and peace in Him. Ben has been up a lot more in the night, I am back to my more regular schedule of shooting (which I've missed, I'm looking forward to creating again! - - but more busy 😜), I start pumping again (one of my least favorite mama duties), and we will have 6 people living in our 900 square foot home for the next week and a half 😆 I actually love a packed home, I came a big family so am used to a lot of people everywhere , but it will be a little crazy over here for a bit! Lord, give me grace and patience this week! . . . .

Breathtaking... ❤️
Sundays are my family days. We have two modes either couch potatoes or we are all over the island adventuring, nothing in-between. 😍 In March we checked out the Lyon garden area, and it was stunning. It was myself and my three little's, one of which forgot her shoes, one was in the ergo, the other isn't a fan of rain. We spent a lot of time hiding under trees, but had a blast!! If you're on Oahu or visiting, check this place out! #oahufamilyphotographer #oahuphotographer #oahu #hawaii #kaneohe #kailua #honolulu #kaneohephotographer #kailuaphotographer #ig_oahu #mykailua #oahufamilyphotography #lifestyle #emotional #storytelling #canon #dearphotographer #militaryspouse #letthembelittle #children #fun #lifestylecollective #hilife #oahuportraitphotographer #oahumilitaryphotographer #hawaiifamilyphotographer #clickmagazine #honoluluphotographer #hikingoahu #mylife
