In honor of remembering the true superheroes this Memorial Day weekend, here are some moments from Conor’s awesome superhero themed first birthday!!! 🙌🏼 🇺🇸 ❤️💙 ❤️💙 . . . #krossroadsphotography #krossroadsphotobooth #katandkody #firstbirthday #superheroes
“A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty” . . . This is one of my all time favorite quotes for one simple reason. Children don’t care about the clothes we wear, what kind of car we drive, the toys we can buy them, or what we look like. All they care about is the unconditional love and time from us. Who here agrees? I remember spending lots of time with my daddy growing up. He even built my sister and I Barbie houses out of wood. TWO stories! And then he let us pick out the color of the paint and help paint them! This is one of my most treasured memories of my dad. Tell me one of your favorite memories growing up in the comments below! Let’s reminisce a little bit today ❤️ . . . . . .
Time for another Friday introductions! 🌺 I am addicted to office supplies. Really supplies in general. I can roam office max, craft stores for way too long and I just want to buy it all! 🌺 I am a hopeless romantic and love watching click flicks. Anyone watch Friends with Benefits or The Lake House? 🌺 I love to sing and you can commonly find me rocking out in the car, in the shower or in random parking garages😂 🌺 I do not have a green thumb... I am currently hoping I can bring back to life my little sprouts that I forgot to water for a week 😑 🌺 I laugh at how much I love the beach now being that I was never a beach person growing up. Now I can’t wait for sunny days and spend some time in the water! 🌺 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #hawaiiportraitphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotography #Oahuportraitphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #kailuaphotographer #Familyphotography #luckyweliveHI #luckywelivehawaii #momblogger #momswhoblog #clickinmoms #embracechildhood #childhoodunplugged #honoluluphotographer #maternity #fridayintroductions #motherhoodunplugged #momtog #photomom #toddlermom #mompenuer #ourcandidlife #blogger #oahumaternity #hawaiiblogger #ilovekailua #aboutme
Wouldn’t it be lovely if we could bottle up special memories, and uncork them just at the moment we want to recall them? Unfaded, and unchanged? I wish I could bottle all of those heart melting snuggles from my daughter, the way she grabs my hand, and how she says, “momma”. If you could bottle just one, what would it be?
ready for an adventure #islandheartphotography
May your weekend be this fun! #beachtime #beachplay #hawaii

I always laugh when parents or adults tell me they don't really want a jump shot... because 95% of the time I hear back later that it actually ends being one of their favorite photos. Is it silly? Of course! That's why it's a perfect addition to a family photo session... it's impossible to do without getting a big assed grin on your face! #jumpphoto #jumpshot

Like mama like daughter. We just cannot get enough of pups! Today we got this beautiful puppers who was the absolute best dog all around kids. I couldn’t believe he was only 7 months old! Such a mellow puppy! I hope one day we can get another pup for her to play with. In the mean time we will have to settle for playing with the pups we find when we are out and about. What is your dream pup? I would love having an Australian Shepherd or a Retriever 🐶 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #hawaiiportraitphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotography #Oahuportraitphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #kailuaphotographer #Familyphotography #luckyweliveHI #luckywelivehawaii #momblogger #momswhoblog #clickinmoms #embracechildhood #childhoodunplugged #honoluluphotographer #maternity #retriversgram #motherhoodunplugged #puppylove #photomom #toddlermom #mompenuer #ourcandidlife #blogger #oahumaternity #hawaiiblogger #ilovekailua #toddlersanddogs

What is love? That is the million dollar questions, isn't it? There are so many different answers to this question and the cool thing is, they are all right! I don't think love is the same for every person and when asked, you will never get the same answer twice. That's what makes it so special and desirable. So, my question for you is, What does love mean to you? To me, love is... Marrying your best friend. It's marrying that person that you always look for in a crowd. Love is that one person who is always your first call. That person you know you can count on no matter what and who will always be there for you to lean on. Love is romance, but not all of the time. Love is compromise. Sometimes it's putting someone else happiness before your own. Love can be young or old. It can come in many different shapes and sizes. Love can be any color and sometimes even mixed and matched. Love is marvelous. . . . #oahucouplesphotographer #oahumaternityphotographer #oahumaternity #hawaiicouplesphotographer #oahuengagementphotographer #hawaiiengagementphotographer #hawaiimaternityphotographer #hawaiiphotographer #oahuphotographer #kawelabay #qcphotographer #quadcitiesphotographer #quadcitiesmaternityphotographer #bettendorfphotographer #davenportphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #oahufamilyphotographer #mastinlabs #unraveledacademy #davenportiowa #adventurephotography #adventureoahu
We got to go out and enjoy some sun today! Hubby took me to his favorite childhood beach and oh my goodness it is just the most perfect toddler beach. Barely any people and the water was so calm Riley had no fears coming in and out of the water by herself. You might notice though she isn’t totally into taking this picture right now cause this was right after we found a little crap on her and it proceeded to swim after us for 10 minutes. We moved it to the shore and it quickly disappeared so now she was a little worried 😂 this little crab gave us a lot of laughs though! We couldn’t believe how quick it was able to keep up with us! I told hubs that this is the only beach I want to come to now 😂 can I also add we get no phone service there too so it’s a nice disconnect as well! Cannot wait for summer! What are some of your summer plans? ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #hawaiiportraitphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotography #Oahuportraitphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #kailuaphotographer #Familyphotography #luckyweliveHI #luckywelivehawaii #momblogger #momswhoblog #clickinmoms #embracechildhood #childhoodunplugged #honoluluphotographer #maternity #hawaiibeaches #motherhoodunplugged #summervibes #photomom #toddlermom #mompenuer #ourcandidlife #blogger #oahumaternity #hawaiiblogger #ilovekailua #beachvibes

Here’s one for self love ❤️ my eyes may be totally squinty, you can see some of my pudge and I have hair in my face but I just love my smile in this picture. I’ve tried multiple times to delete it but I the end I can’t let go of it so I figured why not share it! Today is perfect for Friday Introductions so here we go! 🌺 I am a forced early bird. I am naturally a night owl but since having Riley I tend to get up quite early and make myself go to bed by midnight. 🌺 I love to drink milk. I’m that weird person that goes out to eat and asks if they have milk rather than soda 😂 🌺 I love collecting little animal figurines on my travels. I have a wooden camel from Africa, a little wolf from Arizona, and a little panda from Japan just to make a few. 🌺 One thing I am so happy I tried was darkroom photography. I originally hated the idea of black and white and it seriously changed my life. Now I just miss the days of working in a darkroom. It’s so therapeutic. 🌺 What is one thing you are happy you tried?

She loves these little guys. And I think they love her just as much. These duckies practically live at our house now and come running to her anytime they hear her voice. They follow her all around the drive way and even to the car down the street. I hope one day we can get her a pup, but until then, these two will do. 🦆🦆 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #hawaiiportraitphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotography #Oahuportraitphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #kailuaphotographer #Familyphotography #luckyweliveHI #luckywelivehawaii #momblogger #momswhoblog #clickinmoms #embracechildhood #childhoodunplugged #honoluluphotographer #petsofinstagram #ducktales #motherhoodunplugged #momtog #photomom #toddlermom #mompenuer #ourcandidlife #blogger #oahumaternity #hawaiiblogger #ilovekailua #ducksofinstagram
always leave room for adventure in life ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ with so many of my friends selling their homes and buying RV's and exploring the world, I find myself insanely curious. Is it a possibility? Yes, one day. Perhaps in a few years it would definitely be possible. And while @our_bloom_life spoke about all that is going into her home on wheels, I began asking myself "What would I take with me from my home right now?" The answer, was pictures. But more specifically, our family photo albums and albums of my kids. And then. . . so many more racing thoughts after that as well. But I ask, What would YOU take with you? #islandheartphotography ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💄 @moanacheryll 👗 @anthropologie
Story time! The other day we were roaming Waikiki for the afternoon. Riley was sitting in Tony’s shoulders looking at everything around her. We neared a crosswalk and suddenly Riley started yelling “FIRE FIRE🔥 !” Over and over again! We tried to tell her to shhhhh as we had tourist looking at us, looking around and looking a little worried. She continued yelling it. Finally I realized what she was saying. She saw a plumeria tree across the street and was trying to show us the FLOWERS 🌺 😂 We laughed so hard. I just love seeing her words bloom (haha see what I did there 😉)as she figures out how to communicate with us. These little word mess ups just crack me up and I cannot wait for the next one. Happy Wednesday everyone! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #hawaiiportraitphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotography #Oahuportraitphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #kailuaphotographer #Familyphotography #luckyweliveHI #luckywelivehawaii #momblogger #momswhoblog #clickinmoms #embracechildhood #childhoodunplugged #honoluluphotographer #flowers #fridayintroductions #motherhoodunplugged #momtog #photomom #toddlermom #funnystory #ourcandidlife #blogger #oahumaternity #hawaiiblogger #ilovekailua #toddlerwords

A couple weeks ago, I stepped in as a quick last minute photographer for an event called @galsthatbrunchoahu for my friend @malhbotts ! I loved being able to hang out with some wonderful ladies, eat brunch (seriously, the French toast just melts in your mouth!), and watching some beautiful Haku’s get made. If you want to get in on the next brunch or want to see more, check out the link Mal’s bio! Also side note, don’t these desserts look amazing?! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #hawaiiportraitphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotography #Oahuportraitphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #kailuaphotographer #Familyphotography #luckyweliveHI #luckywelivehawaii #momblogger #momswhoblog #clickinmoms #embracechildhood #childhoodunplugged #honoluluphotographer #maternity #gtboahu #motherhoodunplugged #momtog #photomom #toddlermom #mompenuer #ourcandidlife #blogger #primakailua #hawaiiblogger #ilovekailua #galsthatbrunch
Totally forgot to post yesterday as it seemed I was running a half hour late all day yesterday. Just can’t make some days 🤷‍♀️ Anywho, I have recently taken over craft time/playgroup for Stroller Strides and I thought it would be fun to share what we are doing with you in case you want to do some fun activities with your little ones! For the month of May I focused on May flowers and what we might find in a garden as flowers begin to bloom from all of April’s showers 😉 check out the link in the bio to see all of our activities! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #hawaiiportraitphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotography #Oahuportraitphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #kailuaphotographer #Familyphotography #luckyweliveHI #luckywelivehawaii #momblogger #momswhoblog #clickinmoms #embracechildhood #childhoodunplugged #honoluluphotographer #toddlerart #toddlercrafts #motherhoodunplugged #momtog #photomom #toddlermom #mompenuer #ourcandidlife #blogger #craftymama #hawaiiblogger #ilovekailua #artsandcrafts
Whenever I see this image of 4yo Gemma, I think "Red Riding Hood." It took a lot of fine-tune editing to get just the right tones, but I really like it. @baby_gems_boutique . #youngmodel #redridinghood

A day late, but Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing mamas out there! Such a pleasure to shoot these two and see how much they adore each other ❤️ • • • #happymothersday #momlife #celebratemom #beauty #love #life #oahuphotography #oahuphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #oahufamilyphotographer
Mother’s Day has been so hard since my mom passed away. It would hurt me seeing everyone spend the day with their moms and posting pictures and how I would never have that again. I wondered how I was possibly going to be a good mother without my own to lean on? Little did I know what God had in store for me🌺 He gave me Riley when I didn’t expect it and I am so lucky to have her bring me into this world of motherhood. It is one of the hardest but most fulfilling thing I have ever done. I cannot get enough of her scrunched up nose when she smiles or her laughs. I cannot get enough of watching her figure out this world. I love all her hugs and kisses. Those moments when she just comes sits on my lap and stares at me and I just wonder what is going through her little mind. She has given me amazing mom groups that I get to spend with daily. She’s given me the courage to do things I never thought I’d be able to do. 🌺 It’s been a long time since I’ve gone to the cemetery to see my mom. Today though we went up and I gave Riley a rose to give my grandma. I didn’t expect more than maybe her just to keep the rose, cry when we leave it, or maybe to just be running around like toddlers do. But sometimes our kids do something that isn’t melt our hearts. She put the rose down, bent down, and said “Hi Grandma!” With a little wave. She jumped on the stones near by while we cleaned and as we left she said “Bye Grandma! Have a good day!” It amazes me when kids do the unexpected and you didn’t even know you needed it. I love this girl so much. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #hawaiiportraitphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotography #Oahuportraitphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #kailuaphotographer #Familyphotography #luckyweliveHI #luckywelivehawaii #momblogger #momswhoblog #clickinmoms #embracechildhood #childhoodunplugged #honoluluphotographer #maternity #motherlessmom #motherhoodunplugged #momtog #photomom #toddlermom #mompenuer #ourcandidlife #motherhood #oahumaternity #happymothersday #ilovekailua #unitedinmotherhood
Why do we all get so caught up in the amount of followers we have? . . . This is an honest question. I never truly understood it and quite frankly could care less if I had a small following VS a large one. I actually prefer the first if it means a few things. . . . True engagement and interaction between us. I want to interact with YOU! I love when people comment on my posts and I love staying connected with everyone! It’s more important to me to have people following me who truly love my work and love seeing my images and my captions pop up in their feed. I want people to follow me who actually want to know me and what my brand is all about. If you follow me, you’re going to be seeing a lot of personal posts because I am my brand. My family is my brand. And my daughter is the whole reason behind my brand. I’m not trying to become famous or anything... I’m just a small town girl, who feels emotions from the depths of her soul, who is moved by meaningful and emotional images. I just want to capture special memories between you and your family that you can cherish forever. I want my followers to feel something when they see my images and maybe even take something away from them and the captions. . . Forget about how many people are following you and remember it’s all about those people who truly believe and support you and your brand.
So much fun working with 4yo Gemma! The two images of me and Gemma are by her mother, Marissa @baby_gems_boutique
MUST READ!!! . . I felt you. You were a pea and then a lemon. Then an eggplant. I followed advice. I read twelve books. I quit caffeine. . . Could you tell I was scared? I talked to you, sang to you.. I wasn’t ready. . . But then you were here. Ten toes. Seven pounds. Love. Big fat love. . . I held you. I fed you. Realized that I would spend my life doing things to make you happy - - and that would make me happy. . . And then there are the times I want to give up. You’ve made me rethink my sanity. You’ve made me want to fall at my mothers feet and tell her that I get it. But then you smile and you say my name - - and you grab my hand with those little fingers. . . We are growing together. We are seeing the world like it’s new. I will open my heart and love will rain down all over you. You’ll giggle and I’ll do it all over again. And we will walk hand and hand. Until you let go. I made you, but you made me a mother. . . Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommas and mommas to be out there! What is motherhood to you? A few words come to mind for me. Love, understanding, chaos, challenges, support. There are so so many more! I’d love to hear yours!

Teehee! I made Riley this little graduation cap and diploma out of construction paper and yarn when she was 4 months old. I laughed cause I had this planned for her to be on her belly but she decided during this photo shoot that it was the perfect time to learn to roll over 😂 Made me spent half of the time just flipping her back over so I could get this shot 😂 while I don’t want her growing up faster than she already is, I cannot wait for when she is a senior to share this and probably print it up real big😂 if you know any seniors who are graduating and need those last minute graduation photos, please send them my way! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #hawaiiportraitphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotography #Oahuportraitphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #kailuaphotographer #Familyphotography #luckyweliveHI #luckywelivehawaii #momblogger #momswhoblog #clickinmoms #embracechildhood #childhoodunplugged #honoluluphotographer #maternity #oahuseniorportraits #motherhoodunplugged #theygrowsofast #photomom #toddlermom #mompenuer #ourcandidlife #blogger #littlegraduate #hawaiiblogger #ilovekailua #hawaiiseniorportraits
