The introvert in me just wants to remain in the background without a need for an introduction. And, because my wife is the prettier half on this two-man team and thus justified to be showcased. I, on the other hand is the nerdy half and would prefer to talk shop all day regarding cameras and photography in general. But for today, allow me to make a quick intro of myself. I’m Stephen in this two-man operation of Stephen and Sara Photography. Three quick things about me: 1) I love being daddy to these three wonderful human beings who are also capable of driving me mad. I love them all to death though. 2) Sara and I met in Las Vegas one fateful night in 2004 and fell in love with each other because of photography. Yes, we love photography. 3) I began my photography journey doing street photography. These three photos represent the influence of street photography in our work. One can sit in the same street corner all day taking photos and come away with a unique photo with each shot. That’s because each photo is a unique moment in time as the street moves. The same happens in the corner of one’s home. Three photos, same corner, but each one is a unique moment in time. 📸: Sara That’s why we love to capture these moments because they matter. They are your moments. We want you to hold them. #oahufamilyphotography #kapoleifamilyphotography #westoahufamilyphotography
❤️VALENTINES MINI’S❤️ We have a little over a week to get these spots filled! These were super fun last year! Tag a friend with a kiddo below who might be interested! Don’t forget to reserve one for your kids as well! I’m hoping to have some extra time to make some Valentine’s Day cupcakes too! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #hawaiiportraitphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotography #Oahuportraitphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #kailuaphotographer #Familyphotography #luckyweliveHI #luckywelivehawaii #momblogger #momswhoblog #clickinmoms #embracechildhood #childhoodunplugged #honoluluphotographer #letthembelittle #chasinglight #motherhoodunplugged #valentinesminisession #photomom #toddlermom #mompenuer #ourcandidlife #valentines #toddlermom #hawaiiblogger #ilovekailua #valentinesday
💑These two were so cute! They were really flirty and playful. . . 🍃This location has been one really requested lately. I booked two yesterday for this location, and I have a session here Friday! 🤗 . 📍3 Reasons why Kualoa is perfect for everyone: 1- MOUNTAINS? I mean who doesn’t love mountains? 2-The kids could totally be kids here. They could shake it off for a few! 3- The beach is literally a few steps away!! Best of both worlds. . . 🐪 Happy hump day everyone !!
Happy 13 months to my crazy toddler! My goal is to do these monthly pictures until he’s 2 years old. . . It’s getting a lot harder because he’s EVERYWHERE 🤣. It was SO much easier when he wasn’t a running boy! . . Thankfully a fellow photographer helped me out to tame my beast for a few. So thank you @km_ivelisse !! . . Our romper is from a local store @ashleyroseclothing . She’s so sweet and has the cutest boho babe items in her shop. Head over and you won’t be disappointed!! . . Although today was a rough day for us. Full of tears both on mommy + Nicholas. I still love you with all my heart. Motherhood is a rollercoaster of emotions!
Got to try out Pups of War at Windward Mall yesterday for my dads birthday. It was a blast! Riley just made the cut and got to go in. I must say though, she was so excited to shoot but they don’t make need guns her size easy to shoot. They really need to make one easier for toddlers to join in. She made the best out of it running through the tunnels and becoming my personal bullet collector😂 she would collect them all and then bring them to me on the field 😂😂😂 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #hawaiiportraitphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotography #Oahuportraitphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #kailuaphotographer #Familyphotography #luckyweliveHI #luckywelivehawaii #momblogger #momswhoblog #clickinmoms #embracechildhood #childhoodunplugged #honoluluphotographer #letthembelittle #pointandshoot #motherhoodunplugged #funday #photomom #toddlermom #mompenuer #ourcandidlife #blogger #toddlermom #hawaiiblogger #ilovekailua #nerfornothin
I told Tony I wanted to do at least 2 runs this year. Today we did the Bubble Run! Riley didn’t like any part of it. Not waking up, not waiting to park, waiting to go, not even the bubbles! It wasn’t until they gave her a medal that she got super excited 😆 she was so thankful that the lady gave her a winner then continued to tell us how she won and deserves a trophy now. She hasn’t wanted to take it off 😂 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #hawaiiportraitphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotography #Oahuportraitphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #kailuaphotographer #Familyphotography #luckyweliveHI #luckywelivehawaii #momblogger #momswhoblog #clickinmoms #embracechildhood #childhoodunplugged #honoluluphotographer #letthembelittle #chasinglight #motherhoodunplugged #bubblerunhonolulu #photomom #toddlermom #mompenuer #ourcandidlife #bubblerun #toddlermom #hawaiiblogger #ilovekailua #bubblerun2019

When I was little I remember my mom had this large treasure chest I think made out of chipboard. She let me decorate it with paints, glitterglue and stickers. She would take me on walks and I would gather things for my nature treasure chest. Riley has been gathering a lot of things lately so we went to target and found a little wooden box. I let her choose 3 colors and we painted it 😁 now we are waiting for the paint to dry so we can glue on some jewels 💎 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #hawaiiportraitphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotography #Oahuportraitphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #kailuaphotographer #Familyphotography #luckyweliveHI #luckywelivehawaii #momblogger #momswhoblog #clickinmoms #embracechildhood #childhoodunplugged #honoluluphotographer #letthembelittle #chasinglight #motherhoodunplugged #treasurechest #photomom #toddlermom #mompenuer #ourcandidlife #blogger #toddlermom #hawaiiblogger #ilovekailua #naturetreasures
This kid slept from 7-7 and woke up telling me she was a princess after the little crown she found at the mall yesterday. So she chose a dress, had me put the crown in her hair and asked for her new princess shoes from the Disney store. We also couldn’t forget putting on her seahorse necklace. She is such a character ❤️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #hawaiiportraitphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotography #Oahuportraitphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #kailuaphotographer #Familyphotography #luckyweliveHI #luckywelivehawaii #momblogger #momswhoblog #clickinmoms #embracechildhood #childhoodunplugged #honoluluphotographer #letthembelittle #chasinglight #motherhoodunplugged #princess #photomom #toddlermom #mompenuer #ourcandidlife #princessriley #toddlermom #hawaiiblogger #ilovekailua #childhood
Cue this amazing couple with sunset lighting and 😍.⠀ ⠀ Aside from remembering I had this little gem yet to post, I also just realized I have only 12 days of winter break left before I hit the books again. I would complain, but my husband reminds me it was *my* choice to go to graduate school. He's very wise sometimes - or, as he likes to put it, he has "occasionally brilliant ideas". 😂⠀
😰I feel like I’ve been SUPER busy this week (and it’s only Wednesday)!! . . 🍃Between my sons play dates, meetings, cleaning AND sessions. I live for play dates, because it helps us to get some fresh air. . . 👶🏽Nicholas now is running everywhere so I enjoy having him just be free without a care! . . Anyways, I’m so excited that all my studio things are coming in. I’ll be adding newborn in studio sessions which I’m excited about!! . . 📍Anyone 36+ weeks pregnant? Know anyone? Tag them below !! I’ll be needing some models at a portfolio price 😍.
I know I know, it’s already half way into January and I’ve only posted like 3 times... I haven’t posted on my blog since I think October. My mind has been so scattered trying to get things in order. I feel like I worry to much about what to post, will it look nice, the variety between phone photos and DSLR photos. I’ve been looking at pivoting my blog and what I do just a little bit and it’s taking some time to get that clarity. With all that being said, I’d love to hear what are your favorite things you love seeing from me? What do you wish you saw more of? I’ve been thinking of taking a more creative turn this year both in toddler crafts but more art for myself as I’ve been noticing I’ve barely done anything artsy since I graduated 3 years ago. Say what?! Tell me your thoughts below! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #hawaiiportraitphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotographer #Hawaiifamilyphotography #Oahuportraitphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #kailuaphotographer #Familyphotography #luckyweliveHI #luckywelivehawaii #momblogger #momswhoblog #clickinmoms #embracechildhood #childhoodunplugged #honoluluphotographer #letthembelittle #chasinglight #motherhoodunplugged #newdirections #photomom #pivot #mompenuer #ourcandidlife #blogger #toddlermom #hawaiiblogger #ilovekailua #scatterbrain
🌸Argh! These two sibling cuties! 🌸 We love how expressions are relaxed and genuine when kids get to be themselves. 💕

Part of turning a house into a home is getting our stories up on the walls. Let 2019 be the year that they come off your computer. I can help you with that. Book👇🏻www.julieryanshiromafoto.com

Aloha 🌺 . . Per Friday’s I like to introduce myself or let you know a little about me! Where are my Disney fans at? I thought I could pick 5 of my favorite movies, but it was to hard lol! Randomly on my list, because putting them in 1-10 would be even harder for me 🤣. Any of your favorites on my list? . . 🏰 MY TOP 10 DISNEY MOVIES 🏰 1-The Princess And The Frog 2-Frozen 3-Coco 4-Wall-E <— Our yorkie is named after this movie. I cried at the movie theaters 🤣. 5-Mulan 6-Beauty + The Beast (new) 7-Tarzan 8-Lady + The Tramp 9-The Emperor’s New Groove 10-Atlantis: The Lost Empire
I hope my husband and I are this in love & happy after 17 years of marriage. It's a lofty goal, but one worth a lifetime of trying. #relationshipgoals ⠀ 💕💕⠀
Do you see the tenderness in her touch and the deep joy in his expression? 🥰💕Celebrating 47 years building not just a marriage, not just a life, but building a legacy together. Swipe 👈🏻 to see them surrounded by their grandchildren that live on the island 🌴 - What kind of legacy are you building? 💕🥰💕 . . . . #oahufamily #oahuphotographer #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #hawaiilife #hawaiivacationphotographer #hawaiiphotography #hawaiiphotographer #clickmagazine #cameramama #celebrations
How stunning is this location? So finding this location was on my list forever. The first time I tried man was it a fail 🤣. Come to find out we were SO close. . . So last night I got to my session super early and I was determined to find this for them. THANK YOU to my fellow photographer who was my guide there 🥰. #communityovercompetition . . I was so excited to find it, and the view was just BREATHTAKING!! I snapped a quick photo on my cellphone and ran back to meet my clients. Could you believe this is just a quick cellphone shot? . . Now who is up for a session here? Click the bio link, or slide into my DM’s and let’s talk 😏😍.
The ends of sessions are always my favorite. Everyone feels looser, and people are excited to try new poses. These two lovebirds were eager to stick their toes in the calm water for some sweet sunset lighting. They look like they're 17 again, but they're actually celebrating 17 years of marriage. 💕 #rockingit #getit #relationshipgoals
Family photos at the beach are always a good idea 👌🏼Little ones grow up so fast - it’s so important to document every step along the way 💕#oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #hawaiilife #hawaiisbestphotos #hawaiiphotographer #oahuportraitphotographer

Ohana means family, and family means no one gets left behind or forgotten." —Lilo, Lilo & Stitch . . . Katie has such sweet babes. I was so in love with her daughters romper. Who doesn’t love lace? I was so obsessed with lace for my wedding. I had my veil custom ordered and it almost didn’t make it for my wedding lol! . . Lace or no lace?
Love this beautiful family! . . . Tomorrow Greyson goes back to school, I’m so sad! Anyone else feeling sad? I have loved being in our old routine, morning jog and then the park.

Living in Hawaii is such a dream and getting to photograph gorgeous couples, families in the amazing scenery that’s on the island of Oahu is a huge cherry on top but nonetheless, I miss all of my Oklahoma clients dearly. This family in specific has had me photograph their pregnancy announcement with sweet baby Adley, (we had maternity scheduled but Adley decided to show up the day of!), newborn photos of Adley, their wedding and continuing their family photos through the years. So thankful to be able to photograph many of my client’s lifetime memories and love through the years! I can’t wait to continue to do so for many others ❤️
I just wanted to share a picture of my handsome babe at Disneyland. . . Disney lovers ... Disneyland or Disney World? 🏰😍

All the advice in the world couldn’t have prepared me for what motherhood would be like... 🌙
So excited for these two to welcome their baby boy into the world very soon 💙✨
I absolutely love when people come to me with their own ideas! This daddy to be wants to show their baby boy that daddy had a nice lifted truck so of course I was more than down to capture daddy and all his babies in one picture ❤️✨ • • P.S. if you know MY baby’s daddy, you’d know he’s the same exact way 😂 So our gender reveal photos looked a little something like this as well lol. But hey, there’s nothing more fitting when your son comes out to absolutely LOVE trucks!
It’s been a little bit since I’ve posted...I’ve been shooting and editing a lottt. Just a tad bit slower than usual. With the holiday season being here, I wanted to make sure I was being present with my family. Especially my son 💙 Thank you to everyone who has been patient and supporting me! It truly means the world! Anywayyys...LOOK at this beautiful mama to be at my first ever maternity shoot a few weeks ago ✨

Hi! Nice to meet you! Want to know more about us? 😊 We're a company of very friendly people who traveled a lot and disappointed every time when we returned home and viewing our vacation`s photos. 🌴 The reason of our disappointed wasn't only in the quality of these photos, but what was captured on them: standard foreshortening, poses, mocked smiles. We realized that it's better to hire a photographer for 1 day so that he capture a lot of good photos. 📷 But it was a big problem to find a real professional in another country. For several years we have been looking for the best photographers around the world, and finaly we found those to whom we are ready to entrust our personal memories. ☺️ In order to book a photo shoot in any country in North and South America, contact us: 💌 hello@wanderway.photo or www.wanderway.photo

Last night I went to the #madeformoremovie and got to see Rachel and Dave Hollis in person, so awesome! I have had crippling anxiety and fear of failure. It keeps me from doing so much of what I once dreamt to do. My photography business took years longer to get started then it should have because I doubt everything I do, and every post I make. (It’s no surprise, I’m terrible with words and spelling 🙈🤣) This year I’m going to continue to fight against my anxiety and keep working on growing my business and myself. My boys are watching and I want to be a good example for them. A few things that have helped me have been the book #girlwashyourface (I listen to it on my way to every photo shoot, it gets me out of my head) The workshops I have taken with the ever so talented and inspirational @stormysolis (Y’all I had so much anxiety I tried to cancel my first workshop, so thankful that she talked me out of it.) And of course prayer, and trying to surround myself with positive people. . . . . #clickinmoms #storytellingmama #thehonestlens #documentaryphotography #dearphotographer #thesweetlifeunscripted #ourcandidlife #candidchildhood #thegallerycollective #boldemotionalcolorful #lifestylephotography #thegalleryoflight #thenarrativesociety #thebloomforum #mom_hub #hawaiiphotographer #lettherebelight #hawaiimagazine #beunraveled #clickmagazine #hilife #oahuhawaii #oahufamilyphotographer #oahufamilyphotography #theoutdoorchild #runwildmychild #smalpresets #livethelittlethings
Behind The Scenes: I very rarely work with an assistant, but when I do have an extra body around I use them! While doing Amanda's senior portraits, I put her Dad to work, holding my light stand or blocking the sun. :-) #bts #behindthescenes #seniorportraits
